General Skill — Charisma
Disguise allows characters to cover their features, blend into a crowd, and impersonate individuals. A disguise check is opposed by an opponent's Awareness check.
This action allows characters to change or distort their facial features, or even change their weight and height, as part of a disguise.
The skill check for this part of a Disguise is done when the disguise is created and cannot be rerolled without starting from scratch. The time it takes to create and don a disguise is determined by the sum of the time taken for each change.
|Change||Roll modifier||Example||Time Taken|
|Minor facial feature||––||A fake mustache||30 seconds|
|Major facial feature||-2||Change shape of one's nose||5 minutes|
|Major physical feature||-4||Change color of one's skin||10 minutes|
|Minor physical feature||-2||Increase weight by 10%||5 minutes|
Any Disguise checks made to change a character's appearance without having suitable materials receives a -5 penalty and takes four times as long.
This action allows characters to impersonate a specific individual. It covers an individual's voice, affectations, and behavior. The check is made whenever the character interacts with a suspicious individual. If a suspicious person fails the disguised character's Change Appearance check by 5 or more, he takes a -5 penalty to his Awareness check for interacting with the disguised character.
The disguised character is subject to the following roll modifiers
|Playing a made-up person||+5|
|Impersonating a person of a different culture||-5|
|Impersonating a person of a different age||-2|
This action allows characters to disappear into crowds of people even while being observed. This action cannot be used when there is no crowd to disappear into.
If a character's physical disguise hasn't been compromised and isn't unique to the area (such as a guard's uniform or priest robes), the disguised character gains a +5 bonus to this check.
|Character is in different culture||-2†|
|Character is wearing flashy clothing||-5†|
† - These modifiers obviously apply only if the character's clothing differs from the crowd's. If the character's clothing matches the culture he is in, or if the character is wearing a jester's outfit in the middle of a festival, these penalties don't apply.
