Overview section

  • Transcends three realms
  • Can't be destroyed, only redistributed
  • Drawn to sapience

Realmatic Interactions[edit]

  • Probably needs better name
  • Most Investiture is in Spiritual, with the exception of Sel
  • Solid (metallic)/liquid gaseous forms of Investiture in physical realm
  • Perpendicularities
  • Since Innate Invest is in the Spiritual, do it here? Could otherwise make it it's own section or subsection. I don't love the idea of giving it a full h2 heading, but could be necessary if long enough.

Shardic Interactions[edit]



  • Bring in current terminology section, but better
  • Different ways free Investiture pops up on different planets
  • Known forms subsection here? Or push that down to a Known Investitures section?

Natural Manifestations[edit]

  • How plants and animals have evolved to access Invesiture. Aviar, Larkin Rosharan flora and fauna.


  • Invested objects must be created by an outside source, so their creation is a use
  • Kinetic Investiture (Invesiture in use)
  • Can detect the various uses via burning bronze and tracking fabrials

Kinetic Investiture[edit]

Investiture currently in active use is known as Kinetic Investiture.[1] Many of the Invested Arts naturally have the ability to detect Kinetic Investiture built into them.[2] The methods currently known to do this are sand covered in microbes from Taldain and Allomantic bronze. Faded sand from Dayside turns white when Kinetic Investiture is near, allowing the person holding it to see who is using Investiture.[3] Bronze Allomancy can theoretically detect all types of Kinetic Investiture, but some are much harder to detect than others.[4] In the case of Feruchemy, the power is much more difficult to detect because the Feruchemist is only using internal Investiture while Allomancy draws from an external source.[5] Lightweaving is quieter and harder to detect than Lashings or fabrials. It is not known if the reason why is similar to Feruchemy. Different powers on and within different planets have different pulses or wavelengths.[6] An experienced Seeker can distinguish between those powers.[2] As a fabrial could potentially be created to detect emotional Allomancy, fabrials may be one of the ways to detect Kinetic Investiture.[7]
