(E) Forgery

  • Attribute:  Agility
  • Type:  Utility
  • Time:  N/A
  • Description:  Those with this skill can attempt to falsify a written, pictorial, or symbolic document that is displayed in a physical or electronic form. The forger must have an understanding of the language and/or symbolism to be forged, have access to the materials and/or media, and be familiar with the display form. A skill check is required to make the forgery and it assumes the forgers skill rank; when it is used, any challenges against the validity of the document are made at this skill rank to pass it off as a genuine document. The difficulty for creating the document is based on the type, its frequency within the culture, and the likelihood of such a document being forged. If the initial skill check fails, the time and materials are wasted and a new document will need to be forged; if the save fails, its authenticity is called into question, typically leading to a more in depth investigation.
  • Example of use:  Create a message that requests false aid, fashion a symbol of a powerful magistrate to gain access to an estate, make passable orders to have a prisoner released, etc.
  • Prerequisites:  The Bluff skill and four skill points in Guile
