Opposed INT check or opposed PRE check?

What skills should come to bear (if any) in this kind of check?


As an opposed INT check, a character can force an enemy’s attention either to or away from themselves.  This can be used to save an ally who is being targeted by an enemy or to remove yourself from the enemy’s field of view momentarily.
A successful distraction allows the former target to make a stealth check to remain out of the enemy’s view or to set up a surprise attack in the next round


  1. If it's a verbal distraction (Hey tough guy! Over here), then I would think it needs to be PRE.

    If it's a physical distraction (I'm lighting this curtain on fire) then I would say it needs to be to stealth based, like a slight of hand.

  2. I think you're right about the Presence part of it.

    As far as physical distractions, I'll leave that up to a combination of the Distract and roleplaying.
