  • Attribute:  Perception
  • Type:  Attack
  • Time:  One action
  • Description:  This skill is used to actively find a person or object that is hidden, concealed, or may otherwise be shrouded; discern a specific factor or detail; detect hidden passageways or secret doors, etc. It's an active observational skill that's initiated by the character rather than the GM to identify a person, place, or thing. In combat, it requires at least one action to survey an area, and depending on the situation, opponents may get opposed skill checks to negate detection. The difficulty is based on the level of concealment, clarity, and lighting.
  • Example of use:  Attempting to find one person in a crowd, locate the trigger mechanism of a trap, etc.
  • Specialization:  None
