Scout awareness utilizes a Ranger's scouting and appraisal skills to determine their ability to perform certain stealthy actions on an opponent.

Notes

  • Paladins and Thieves can sense when they are scouted also might see it was you even in hiding and receive the same messaging as when they are marked by a Thief: You get a strange sense of unease as if someone was sizing you up.
  • It's similar to APPRAISEing and teaches appraisal skill.
  • Dead or unconcious critters/PCs scout at 0 perception.

Messaging

Messaging is in order of easiest to hardest.

HIDE:

  • you are a forest wraith amongst the trees.
  • you are as a cunning arzumos near its prey.
  • you could evade his untrained eyes.
  • it's around even odds.
  • you cannot shake his watchful eyes
  • an owl's wisdom of her surroundings protects her.
  • eyes like a great eagle would see through any charade of stealth.

STALK:

  • you are the jaguar that lurks for its opportunity to strike.
  • you slink like a hunting cat.
  • you could evade his untrained eyes.
  • it's around even odds.
  • you cannot shake his watchful eyes.
  • a fox's cunning lies within your foe.
  • the senses of a hawk will defy your abilities.

APPRAISALS:

  • You feel highly confident in the accuracy of your judgement.
  • You feel somewhat confident in the accuracy of your judgement.
  • You are somewhat uncertain of the accuracy of your judgement.
  • You have no idea what you're doing and feel like you just made wild guesses.
