When a scholar's blade successfully damages an opponent, information about the creature (or race, in the case of a humanoid opponent) is magically etced into the surface of the blade. Details such as special attacks, special qualities, immunities, weaknesses, and whether the creature has spell resistance are included. However, since this information is listed in terms of the campaign world and not in gaming terms, no number values for any of this information will ever be present. Tilting the blade and moving it closer so the text can be read is a full-round action (the information is fairly detailed). A scholar's blade only retains the information of the last opponent it successfully damaged, and the information fades away after 24 hours.
