Move Silently Skill

Move Silently (Dex)
Armor Check Penalty
You can use this skill to sneak up behind an enemy or slink away without being noticed.

Check: Your Move Silently check is opposed by the Listen check of anyone who might hear you. You can move up to one-half your normal speed at no penalty. At more than one-half and up to your full speed, you take a -5 penalty. It’s practically impossible (-20 penalty) to move silently while running or charging.

Special: You can take 10 when making a Move Silently check, but you can’t take 20.

A character with the Stealthy feat gets a +2 aptitude bonus on Move Silently checks.

Time: None. A Move Silently check is included in your movement or other activity, so it is part of another action.
