This skill is used when a character attempts to move silently and avoid being heard or noticed by hearing or creatures with tremorsense. When attempting to use this skill, the character rolls a Move Silently test opposed by any potential listeners' Listen skill. Both Size and Agility adjust a character's ability to move silently.
A character's ability to move silently can be hindered or assisted by armor, ground conditions, and background noise.
