Discern.png


When you closely study a situation or person, roll+Wis.

  • On a 10+, ask the GM 3 questions from the list below.
  • On a 7–9, ask 1.

Either way, take +1 forward when acting on the answers.

  • What happened here recently?
  • What is about to happen?
  • What should I be on the lookout for?
  • What here is useful or valuable to me?
  • Who’s really in control here?
  • What here is not what it appears to be?

To discern realities you must closely observe your target. That usually means interacting with it or watching someone else do the same. You can’t just stick your head in the doorway and discern realities about a room. You’re not merely scanning for clues— you have to look under and around things, tap the walls, and check for weird dust patterns on the bookshelves.

. {Suggestion: Players who vividly describe what they see or touch provide narrative that inspires the GM in ways that help them do the same -LAS.}
