Astrogate Skill

Astrogate (Int)
Trained Only
Use this skill to plot a course through hyperspace from one star system to another.

Check: You can plot a safe course through hyperspace between two star systems. The result of an Astrogate check determines whether a particular trip occurs without incident and how much time the trip takes; a failed check indicates either a delayed journey or the possibility of a hyperspace mishap that can ruin the journey. For information on moving through hyperspace see Hyperspace DCs.

You can also use this skill to determine your position in space without the use of a nav computer by checking the constellations – provided you are traveling through an area of space you are familiar with.

Special: You can take 10 when making an Astrogate check, but you can’t take 20 since there is a possible penalty for failing.

A character attempting to make a micro-jump takes a -10 penalty on their check.

A character with the Spacer feat and at least 1 rank in this skill gets a +2 Aptitude bonus on Astrogate checks.

Time: Astrogating a course takes 1 minute.
