Spot – Intelligence & Wisdom
"Eyes like a Hawk, I tell ya! It's either that, or he's just always lucky!"
——--Galvin, High Ranger
The Spot Skill represents a character's ability to actively use his visual sense to notice movement or oddities in his environment. Spot can also be used to determine the location of a hidden creature, by noticing minute movement or disturbances. Spot checks can alert you to danger at a distance and allows you to notice things that are out of place.
In additional to its active uses, your Skill Rank in Spot adds to your Awareness score.
Common Uses of the Listen Skill
- Use Locate Danger to spot dangers from a distance, such as other creatures or traps.
