Subtle Spell [Metamagic]

You know how to disguise the use of material, verbal, and somatic components; thus making your spell casting difficult to recognize.
Prerequisite: Spellcraft 1 rank
Benefit: When you cast a subtle spell those who could observe you must make a Spot check opposed by your Spellcraft check to identify that you are casting a spell. A subtle spell uses up a spell slot one level higher than the spell's actual level.
Normal: Without this feat spell casting is automatically recognized as spell casting.

Casting a subtle spell still draws an attack of opportunity. If the person taking the attack of opportunity fails the opposed Spot check (rolled in secret by the DM, if necessary) they still get the attack of opportunity; they realise that you have let your guard down, but not why. This feat is most useful in non-combat situations, such as to surreptiously cast discern lies when talking with someone.
