Hide Your Trail
Survival is the key to tracking — but anyone who knows how to track also knows how to hide his trail.
Check: If you succeed at a skill check (DC 15), the DC of any attempts to track you and your party is increased by 5. This does not require your party to move at half speed; if you do move at half speed, the DC is increased by 10.
Retry: If you fail the check, you may try again in one hour. You cannot take twenty when hiding tracks.
Special: You must possess the Track feat in order to perform this check. If you have 5 or more ranks in Hide, you get a +2 synergy bonus on any Survival check to conceal tracks.
If you have 5 or more ranks of Herbalism or Knowledge (nature), you can use pungent herbs to hide your tracks from dogs and other beasts that track by scent; on a successful check, this increases the DC of a Survival check made to track by an additional 5 points if scent is involved. The Herbalism skill can be found in Atlas Games’ Occult Lore.
