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:
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.
|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.
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.
