This skill describes your mental acuity and powers of observation. You might test Intellect to uncover clues, recall lore, locate hidden creatures, forge a document, craft a useful item, or recognize an illusion for what it is. An intellectually gifted creature thinks quickly and isn't easily fooled.

Some Intellect tests are “passive” (see Passive Tests). The GM should record each hero's passive Intellect score for ease of reference.
