subtract your scale from your stealth modifier
: You may move stealthily up to half your speed. Make a Stealth check
every round. You are undetected so long as your Stealth Check beats
observers' passive Perception DC. The observer takes standard penalties
for distance. As long as someone has not detected you, they are
flat-footed to your attacks. If you attack from hiding, your stealth
check gets a -6 penalty until your next turn.
as a 4SA, you can attempt to snatch an item from a flat-footed target.
Make a Stealth check opposed a perception check made by your target. If
you succeed (meet or beat his roll), he didn't notice you swipe the
object. If the object is larger than can be conveniently hidden in your

trying to rob him, you can make an opposed Wrestle check to steal it
A character with Stealth can use his skill to steal money from the
surroundings. Make a stealth check. You can generally get your result
squared in silver marks for every day out robbing in a town of average
wealth, per hour in a wealthy area, or per minute in an extremely
wealthy area (like a palace). The GM secretly sets a DC from 2 (barely
defended) to 4 (average defence) to 6 (well defended) to 8 or higher
(paranoid security). A result lower than the DC results in the
character not making any money. The point of off-screen thieving is to
not derail the campaign with one character's hijinks, while still being
able to use his skill. For attempting to steal a particular item, don't
use off-screen thieving. Instead, this qualifies more as an adventure
in and of itself.

Stealth modifier with a perception check. You suffer no movement

but it is assumed that you are if you do not specify. You may still
only hide if you have cover or concealment, as per usual.

[Requires Hide in Plain Sight]
observers do not automatically succeed on their observe check if they
are directly looking at you, so long as they are flat-footed. (this is
commonly combined with a distraction to slink away)

concealment. Your check automatically fails if you are strikingly
different from those you are trying to blend in with.
