Base Attribute: Wisdom
Description: This skill represents training or talent for scanning and interpreting one’s surroundings to filter important information from amongst unimportant details. This includes the use of all five senses and may be used in snapshot situations or over more prolonged periods of searching. Applications are numerous but may include spotting something that is amiss (a trap trigger, an ambush), finding something hidden (a pressure plate, a key) or noting minuscule details about another’s appearance (ink stains on the hands, red dust on the boots). The perception skill represents a character’s ability to glean more from the surrounding environment than is immediately apparent.
