Rifle - Attempt to take inventory of a container that is in something else.


rifle <container> in <object>
rifle purse of <object>


With the rifle command you can stealthily take inventory of another object's container. You cannot use this command while you are in combat in that location.

Your ability to get an accurate inventory depends on your skill bonus in covert.manipulation.sleight-of-hand with the difficulty based on the ambient light of your environment, the total amount of light on yourself, things you are carrying, the size of the container and its number of pockets.

If you succeed at all depends on your target's bonus in adventuring.perception (if living). Should you fail you might come out of hiding.

Rifling costs a total of 20 guild points.
