Rahan AvatarWhen a skittering Demon tries to eviscerate a guy or a Vamp you've never seen before tries to suck your blood or a skeleton reaches up out of the ground for your spiffy new boots, Perception might help him spot the bugger before it strikes or swallows your "sole." This mental attribute governs the usual five senses and any extra ones that your character might sprout and is important for wannabe detectives. Hard-bitten detectives (to spot those important clues), people with persistent enemies (to see or hear them coming), and mystical or psychic types (to detect "disturbances in the Force") live longer when they are highly aware of their surroundings. This trait indicates your awareness of the environment around you. While this is sometimes a conscious action, such as when you search for something, it more often works intuitively--you simply notice something. At base, Perception is a sensitivity to the world, an open-eyed quality common among children (for whom the world is a boundless and mysterious place) and seldom present among the most jaded. Perception is used to see if you have the insight to understand or be aware of a certain fact or concept. It can help indicate your degree of altertness to ambushes, the subtext of a politician's speech, or the subtleties of color in a painting.

Level 1: Poor: The character is below average in this attribute. You are blind to anything but the obvious. A Perception 1 depicts someone, a person that is not very aware of his surroundings, likely to miss what's before his face. Attributes at level one are dangerous at the big league level. In other words, attributes at level one are not flattering and are fairly incompetent. If your character has an attribute at level one, such a character is going to be pretty feeble at some things.

Level 2: Average: This is average for Human beings. You are unaware of the subtle interactions that occur around you. Most people in any given group have attributes at this level, typically with one or two levels at one or three. Nothing wrong with being average, but the character is unlikely to shine with such attributes, unless his or her skills are so high he or she can compensate.

Level 3: Good: This is above average but not extraordinary. You are aware of moods and textures. With Perception 3, a character has good senses and intuition, and is not easily fooled or confused.

Level 4: Exceptional: An attribute at level 4 is well above average. You are constantly alert to the nuances of life. Very few people, perhaps one out of every ten in a random group, have one or two attributes at this level. Mental attriutes at level 4 indicate near genius (Intelligence), very highly acute uncanny senses and intuition (Perception), or an "iron will" (Willpower). Not too many of those types in this game, sugar.

Level 5: Outstanding: This is the "practical" Human limit. You can see a needle in a haystack. People at these levels are extraordinarily talented, able to perform complex and difficult feats with little practice. While people with attributes at level five are not "record breakers," they are among the best and the brightest. In a small or medium-sized community, only a handful have one or two attributes at this level, and they are likely to be well known for their strength, wisdom, or toughness. Cities, large college campuses, and groups of Demon fighters and elite groups of knights or warriors have more of these extraordinary individuals, but even there they are not common.

Level 6: This is the basic true Human limit. A few people with "freakish" attributes may exceed it (to level seven), but they are a handful even among the teeming billions living in the 21st century. Characters with one or more attributes at level six are very rare, something on the order of one in ten thousand, or less. People with more than one attribute at level six are perhaps ten times less common, and so on.

Level 7+: Now we're into superhuman territory. This is generally reserved for things with red glowing eyes and... Well, you get the picture. These folks can perform at a level that normal folks can hardly comprehend. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
