Foul scents are produced whenever a criminal action occurs, and can be used by those with the ranging skill to try to track down the perpetrator, the perpetrator's hearth fire, and to recover stolen property. Scents last a certain amount of game days before disappearing.

Most scents allow you to summon the criminal at their hearth fire by left clicking the scent, right clicking the hearth fire, and selecting "Force summon". This allows you to summon their character even while they are off-line. Note that this can be done at a distance - as long as you can see the hearth fire, force summon will be possible.

A scent can be taken an unlimited number of times before it expires. However, a container (including your inventory) can only hold 1 scent for a particular crime at a time.
