Modifying ability: Dexterity

Check: There are two parts to successfully picking a pocket. First the item must be acquired, and then the targeted creature must not notice the theft. Stealing the item is a simple skill test against the target’s difficulty class. The base DC for a neutral or tolerant creature is 20, and 30 for a hostile creature. The targeted creature then makes an opposed Spot check against the character’s Pick Pocket check. Hostile creatures have a +10 bonus to their Spot checks in this test. If the targeted creature succeeds at this opposed check, then the target has detected the theft attempt. A PC will be informed that the character has attempted to pick pocket him. If the character is successful at both checks, then he steals the item without being detected.
Special: Armor check penalty applies to this skill.
