Cyno's Role-Play: Rule Book: Skills


Avoid Pursuit - When a character found himself being followed or tracked, he could use to skill to lose whoever following/tracking him. The tracker may try to roll a percentage higher then the one rolled by the character to stay on the trail. No roll is needed if the character failed the roll.

Concealment - Concealment is the skill to hide items on oneself or others without being detected. Or if clothing is a problem, the character may try to move the item around from one position to another without being detected. When the character is being searched, add 10 to the concealment roll the character is trying to make. If the character tries to conceal item on others, add 15 to the concealment roll to see if the subject notices. This skill can not be used to get items back after concealing on others. Pick pocket must be used.

Demolition - The knowledge of planting and disarming explosives. When planting fails, roll on the following chart with a 100-sided die, or two 10-sided dice:

1 - 20Explosive goes off as the character is planting it.
21 - 40Only half of it detonated; does half damage.
41 - 60Planting is not successful. A dud!
61 - 80The explosion went off too early.
81 - 100The explosion went off too late.
