Campaign of the Month: September 2013
Step: Rank + CHA
The adept eavesdrops on a conversation by watching the target character’s lips move and making a Lip Reading Test against the target’s Social Defense. If successful, he is able to read what the speaker is saying for a number of minutes equal to the Test Result, as long as he can see the target’s lips. The adept must be able to understand the language being spoken to make sense of the conversation. If he doesn’t, the adept can phonetically sound out what the target is saying, allowing someone nearby who can understand the language to translate for him.
