  • Attribute:  Agility
  • Type:  Utility
  • Time:  Free action
  • Description:  A character with this skill is able to perform minor feats of legerdemain with the use of psychology, timing, misdirection, and natural choreography. With a successful skill check, the character is able to palm tiny objects to replace them with other tiny objects or make them seem to disappear, draw a tiny or small weapon, or take a tiny or small object off a target, while under scrutiny. Targets are allowed a Search, Observation, or related skill to notice the deception, with a -1 modifier per skill point in Performance. If the skill check fails, the intent of the action is not accomplished and those in the area may get an Observation check to notice the attempt, depending on the circumstances.
