Age of Heroes
You may use makeup, costume and acting to disguise your appearance, including imitating another person.
Your Disguise check result determines how good the disguise is and it is opposed by others’ Spot check results. If you do not draw any attention to yourself, others do not gain to make Spot checks. If you come to the attention of people who are suspicious, such as a guard who is watching commoners walking through a city gate, it can be assumed that such observers are taking 10 on their Spot checks. You gain only one Disguise check per use of the skill, even if several people are making Spot checks against it. The Disguise check is made secretly, so that you cannot be sure how good the result is. The effectiveness of your disguise depends in part on how much you’re attempting to change your appearance. If you are impersonating a particular individual, those who know what that person looks like gain a bonus on their Spot checks according to the table below. Furthermore, they are automatically considered to be suspicious of you, so opposed checks are always called for. Usually, an individual makes a Spot check to see through your disguise immediately upon meeting you and each hour thereafter. If you casually meet many different creatures, each for a short time, check once per day or hour, using an average Spot modifier for the group.
Creating a disguise requires 1d3×10 minutes of work.
- Try Again:
Yes. You may try to redo a failed disguise, but once others know that a disguise was attempted, they’ll be more suspicious.
Magic that alters your form grants you a +10 bonus on Disguise checks; see the individual magical effect descriptions. You must succeed on a Disguise check with a +10 bonus to duplicate the appearance of a specific individual using the disguise self spell. If you have the Deceptive feat, you gain a +2 bonus on Disguise checks.
If you have five or more ranks in Bluff, you gain a +2 bonus on Disguise checks when you know that you’re being observed and you try to act in character.
