Use the hide skill to sink back into the shadows and proceed unseen, to approach a wizard's tower under cover of brush, or to tail someone through a busy street without being noticed.
Requires training: No
Check: Your hide check is opposed by the spot check of anyone who might see you. You activate the use of your hide (and move silently) skill by going into stealth mode. You move at half speed while in stealth mode.
Special: This skill is subject to an armor check penalty. It also takes penalties in areas with lots of light (so don't carry a torch when you use it!), and receives bonuses in low-lighting. Small characters receive an additional size bonus to this skill.
Use: Selected (stealth mode)
