Sneaking increases the caster's ability to hide by controlling the sound emanated from their body while sneaking through outdoor areas. The bonus to Stalking and Hiding in natural terrains is increased with more ranks in the Ranger Base spell circle.
Combining Natural Colors or Mass Colors with Sneaking makes the caster nearly imperceptible when moving from room to room, even when not actively trying to keep themselves hidden. Only the most perceptive individuals will notice the caster's passage, although anyone who actively looks around when the caster is not keeping himself hidden will notice his presence.
Note: In order to receive the benefit of imperceptible movement, the ranger will need to have one of the colors spells on him before casting Sneaking (617). Alternatively, the caster can use the movement verb to activate the sneak option.
Training in Spiritual Lore, Blessings decreases the chance the caster will slip in icy conditions while Sneaking is active.
You begin to move with cat-like grace.
You are no longer moving silently.
