Spot Hidden Things

This will help determine how hard it is for characters to spot hidden things.

Note on Search BCS: This is different than the search function. Players taking the time to search an area with a successful search will automatically find hidden things. However, this will take time. Find hidden things allow instant discovery.

Determine how hard it is to spot the hidden thing by creating the modifier using the examples below. This does not allow players to find search items, only hidden things.

Difficulty Example Modifier
Easy Key hidden behind jar +3
Average Gun hidden in jacket in closet +0
Hard Safe under carpet with table on it -3
Very Hard Fake wall with hidden latch -5
Difficult Modifier (Against D20):
- = easier, + = harder
Example -5 or +3. Players do not need to roll, either they can spot it (or some of them can) or they can't.
