Much like the original, very nice in Daisy, with that extra tome action, less nice elsewhere, because an for +2, especially in a deck with endless card draw, isn't as good as a card with you can afford to toss on the test. Still. it's a nice bridge for Daisy to the 2XP version, perhaps with the Library Docent to reload it, and you can use Eldritch Sophist to move secrets around, which might be nice, since this is 5 secrets for relatively low cost.
Uses (5 secrets).
Exhaust Encyclopedia and spend 1 secret: Choose an investigator at your location. That investigator gets +2 to a skill of your choice until the end of the phase.

I love it for multiplayer... giving another investigator +2 for each of their 3+ actions is totally worth a single action. I like this even better than the XP version, since nobody but Daisy is likely to use this more than 5 turns a game. — Hylianpuffball · 4
