You can use this skill to sneak up behind an enemy or to slink away without being noticed.


None. A Move Silently check is included in your move-ment or other activity, so it is part of another action.


The master of a cat familiar (see the Familiars sidebar, page 52) gains a +3 bonus on Move Silently checks.

A halfling has a +2 racial bonus on Move Silently checks because halflings are nimble.

If you have the Stealthy feat, you get a +2 bonus on Move Silently checks.
