Re: (TFT) Stealth bonuses in combat

I didn't forget Spying, but it doesn't apply here. 'look right through you' doesn't mean much if they're not looking AT you, or where you might be. None of the examples in the description of Spying have anything to do with sneaking up on someone. 2 of them have to do with observation, and the other has to do with getting away from someone. And even getting away assumes that there's some place to get away TO (i.e. it doesn't work in a hallway with only a door at the end). I don't think the etc. covers it, myself. Peeking through a door or around a corner is miles away from getting close to someone. Spying is not a Talent version of the Unnoticeability Spell.

Don't forget Spying! Its an important catch all for generally being
able to sneak up ON people.... Silent movement tends to do more with
sneaking BY people.
