Exploration Stunts

SP Cost Stunt
1 Advantageous Positioning: You make your discovery from an advantageous position of your choice, up to 2 yards away from the place that would normally lead to your discovery with respect to the object of your test. You may wait until the GM describes what you’ve found, if relevant, before you choose your position. This stunt can be used multiple times on the same test if you have enough stunt points.
2 Efficient Search: If resources of any kind are typically consumed in the course of your test, you use only half as much as would be normal.
2 Speedy Search: You complete your test in half the time it would otherwise take.
3 That Makes Me Wonder: You may immediately make another Perception test, at no additional cost in time or resources, to discover more information about your surroundings, or the object of your test. This bonus test must use a different focus from the first test, however, and doubles on this bonus test do not give rise to stunt points. The two tests are assumed to transpire simultaneously, not one after the other. If there is nothing additional to discover, the stunt is wasted, but the GM will not prevent you from choosing this stunt even when there is nothing additional to learn.
3 The Object of your Attention: You receive a +1 bonus to further tests to examine or perceive additional aspects of the object of your test until the time or venue changes.
4 The Upper Hand: If your discoveries lead to combat within a moment or two, you receive a +3 bonus on your initiative roll.
4 Resources at Hand: Choose a focus that you don’t have, that falls under the same ability as the test you’re making. You are considered to have that focus until the time or venue changes. The GM may require that you explain how this bonus arises from the environment.
4 With a Flourish: The manner of your success is impressive to those who are nearby to watch you. You have a +1 bonus to opposed tests against those who witnesses your brilliance until the time or venue changes.
