Deception is your ability to act, bluff, con, fast talk, lie, misrepresent, and pretend. Accomplished users of deception are able to convince anyone of nearly anything. This skill does not include using a physical disguise or passing yourself off as another person (the Disguise and Impersonate skills cover those areas).

Use this skill whenever you want to deceive someone with words or gestures. A successful skill test means that you have passed off your deception convincingly. At the gamemaster’s discretion, someone who is actively alert for signs of deception may make an Opposed Test using the Kinesics skill.

Example (optional) specializations include Acting, Bluffing, Fast Talk.
