Disable Device

Ability: Intelligence.

Requires Training: Yes.

Classes: All.

This skill allows the character to perform a variety of actions on a trap.

Check: There are four progressively difficult actions that a character may perform on a trap; base DC is determined by the difficulty rating of the trap, modified by the action being performed.

- Assessing a trap to determine its difficulty modifies the DC by -7.

- Flagging a trap to make it visible to the rest of the party modifies the DC by -5.

- Disarming a trap has no effect on the trap DC.

- Recovering a trap raises the trap DC by +10.

Special: A rogue is the only class capable of disarming traps with a DC of 20 or greater. With 5 or more ranks in the Set Trap skill a character gets a +2 synergy bonus on Disable Device checks.

Spectacular Failure: When disarming or recovering a trap, a spectacular failure results in the trap immediately going off.

Use: Assess, Flag, Recover, and Disarm are dropdown menu options off of detected device.
