detect [player]
Usable by: Ewok, Sullustan, and Rodian
Stat: dexterity

Certain races have the ability to detect other living things that are near them by smell, intuition, etc. This skill allows a player to detect the presence of another living thing in adjacent rooms. To use the skill, you need only type 'detect'. If you succeed, you are told if any living creatures are nearby and in which direction. If you fail, you will detect no one near you.

Rodians may also 'detect <player>' to try to detect <player> nearby. Due to their superior sight in low-light environments, Sullustans will also notice available exits.
