(M) Trailing

  • Attribute:  Agility
  • Type:  Move
  • Time:  N/A
  • Description:  Characters with this skill are able to locate a person and follow them without being noticed. Those with this skill are adept at keeping their prey in a direct line of sight, subtly using the surrounding environment for cover while moving along a similar path, matching the pace and route. It's used as a save against any Observation, Search, or related skill checks, and works like a save in that it does not require an action. Difficulty modifiers may be applied to the skill check based on the awareness of a target, type of ground, location and number of obstacles, how much the character stands out, etc.
  • Example of use:  Following a thief to contact a fence, pursuing an official to a secret location, shadowing a target to locate a person or object, etc. 
  • Prerequisites:  The Stealth skill and eight skill points in Guile
