Forgery

Forgery covers the art of creating a exact copy of an item: a work of art (painting, sculpture), a document, etc. and being able to pass it off as the original. Depending upon the quality of the work, the forger will meet with varied degrees of success as outlined below.

The artist skill may complement this skill, or the game master may require it to be used instead, with the appropriate forgery modifiers applied. The Game Master will decide the amount of time a given forgery will require to create.

Item Forged Difficulty Time Required
Unofficial note or correspondence 12 10 Minutes or more
Signature 18 1 Hour or more
Official document (pilot’s license, *legal tender) 24 8 hours or more
* printed money only. Forging Credit Chips has long since been rendered unprofitable due to security functions built into the creation of each Chip
