case - Checks a potential victim for thefts.

case <person>

Description

Description

This command lets you check a potential victim to see if a theft would be viable, in much the same way that "consider" helps you to decide whether someone would offer a reasonable fight or not. Casing a person depends on your bonus in covert.casing.person for accuracy and your bonus in the relevant stealth subskill to see if you're noticed, although you won't necessarily be told if you are noticed. Every attempt costs 20 covert guild points.

Example

Example

> case skinny native
You guess that it would not be too easy to steal something from the skinny
native.
