Perception represents how well a character can observe their environment and find hidden objects.
- Primary Characteristic: Intelligence
- Time to Perform: Instant
Perception comes up whenever the player wants to oppose a Stealth or Sleight of Hand check, and it requires no action to use. If a character has attempted to hide an item using Sleight of Hand, someone else can use Perception to find the hidden item. If a character is hiding using Stealth, someone else can use can use Perception to find their exact location.
Perception checks are subject to range modifiers, as described under Gameplay. Basically, for every range increment outside of a character's normal viewing range the object or creature they're trying to spot is, the roll suffers 1 Disadvantage. Range increments are as follows:
|Distance in Meters||1-10m||11-30||31-60||61-100||101-150||151-210||211-280||281-360|
|Distance in Spaces||1-5||6-15||16-30||31-50||51-75||76-105||106-140||141-180|
Unless modified otherwise by Powers or equipment, characters can see within the first increment without issue.
