A Path to Steam
Defaults: DX-5, Pickpocket-4, or Sleight of Hand-4.
This skill lets you steal objects that are sitting in plain sight . . . without being spotted. Roll against skill to shoplift, snatch documents off a desk, etc. If someone is actively watching the item you wish to snatch, you must win a Quick Contest of Filch vs. his Vision roll (or Observation skill, p. 211) to perform the theft unnoticed.
Filch only covers the theft itself. The GM might require rolls against Stealth to get close enough to make the attempt and Holdout to conceal stolen objects afterward.
Modifiers: +3 if the light is dim; +3 if you have a confederate to distract attention.
