Read Lips

Level 1

General Skill

Prerequisites: trained in Society

You can read lips of others nearby who you can clearly see. When
you’re at your leisure, you can do this automatically. In encounter
mode or when attempting a more difficult feat of lipreading,
you’re fascinated and flat-footed during each round in which you
focus on lip movements, and you must succeed at a Society check
(DC determined by the GM) to successfully read someone’s lips. In
either case, the language read must be one that you know.

If you are deaf or hard of hearing and have Read Lips,
you recognize the lip movements for the spoken form of
your languages. You can also speak the spoken form of your
languages clearly enough for others to understand you.
