This skill encompasses several categories, each of them treated as a separate skill. The number of Perform categories is kept purposely finite. When trying to determine what Perform skill under which a particular type of performance falls, use a broad interpretation of the existing categories:

Perform (act)
Perform (dance)
Perform (keyboards):
Perform (percussion instruments)
Perform (sing)
Perform (stand-up)
Perform (stringed instruments):
Perform (wind instruments)

Check: You are accomplished in some type of artistic expression and know how to put on a performance. You can impress audiences with your talent and skill. The quality of your performance depends on your check result.

Result Performance
10 Amateur performance. Audience may appreciate your performance, but isn’t impressed.
15 Routine performance. Audience enjoys your performance, but it isn’t exceptional.
20 Great performance. Audience highly impressed.
25 Memorable performance. Audience enthusiastic.
30 Masterful performance. Audience awed.

Try again? Not for the same performance and audience.

Special: You can Take 10 when making a Perform check, but you can’t Take 20.

A character without an appropriate instrument automatically fails any Perform (keyboard), Perform (percussion). Perform (stringed), or Perform (wind) check attempted.

Every time a character takes the Creative Feat, they get a +2 bonus check on checks involving two Perform skills they designate.

Time: A Perform check usually requires at least several minutes to an hour or more.
