Discworld Skills

Adventuring.perception is the skill used to detect most covert actions.



This skill determines whether a character spots someone who is hiding or faded. It is also used to see distortions when someone is being scryed with a crystal ball, in which case it is checked against magic.methods.spiritual.summoning. It is also used to notice the cuttlefish (a scrying method accessible through a quest). It is also used to determine the length of time it takes to notice combat and assist when using the "group assist <player>" command.
