Picking Locks/saved posts
Okay, here are the factors for success at each of the three tasks, by default, in a very particular order. Some traps may add their own modifiers. I don't think there's anything revolutionary here.
Helps - Disarming Traps skill, Intuition bonus, Perception skill, Traplore, Presence, Self Control, good lighting, Lucksong (helps your luck)
Hurts - Trap discovery difficulty, wounds, amunet, Sounds, Interference, Weapon Deflection, bad lighting, fog, fumbles
Helps - Disarm skill, Dexterity bonus, Lucksong (helps your luck), Traplore, Self Control, good lighting, "modding down"
Hurts - Trap disarming difficulty, fumbles, amunet, Sounds, Interference, Weapon Deflection, bad lighting, fog, wounds
- Consigliere Ildran, Shizlock Holmesplice
Having an activated thought net (via crystal amulet or any other method) no longer provides a penalty to disarming traps or any other form of locksmithing. Locksmiths should feel free to use their regained rights to telepathically converse with other townsfolk.
