Researching a topic takes time
, and some luck. The GM determines how obscure a particular topic is (the more obscure, the higher the DC) and what kind of information might be available depending on where the character is conducting his or her research.
Information ranges from general to protected. Given enough time
(usually 1d4 hours) and a successful skill check
, the character gets a general idea about a given topic. This assumes that no obvious reasons exist why such information would be unavailable, and that the character has a way to acquire restricted or protected information.
The higher the check
result, the better and more complete the information. If the character wants to discover a specific fact, date, map, or similar bit of information, add +5 to +15 to the DC.
A character can take 10 or take 20 on a Research check
A character with the Studious feat
gets a +2 bonus on all Research checks.
Computer Use can provide a +2 synergy bonus on a Research check
when searching computer records for data (see Skill Synergy
A Research check
takes 1d4 hours.
