Description

Description

This command lets you look covertly at someone, whether to see if they have anything worth stealing or to see how they might defend themselves if attacked, or for whatever other purpose you have in mind. Peeking successfully, that is, without being noticed, depends on your bonus in the relevant covert.stealth subskill, although you won't necessarily be told if you are noticed. Every attempt costs 10 covert points.
