Communication (Disguise)

Your Disguise check result determines how good the disguise is, and it is opposed by others’ Perception check results. If you don’t draw any attention to yourself, others do not get to make Perception 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 doing an opposed Perception checks.

The effectiveness of your disguise depends in part on how much you’re attempting to change your appearance. Creating a disguise requires 1d3 × 10 minutes of work.
