Skill Groups: Surface, Stellar
The character uses the Navigation Skill to plot a course between two points. The course might be across a continent or across a star system. A successful Navigation Test also provides an estimated travel time based on geography, cosmography, prevailing conditions, weather, and solar winds. Surface navigation is used to navigate across a planet’s surface, using logi-compasses, map readouts, and geographical knowledge. Stellar navigation is used to navigate in space between planets, using star-charts, and carto-mantic rituals. A Navigation Test represents several hours of charting courses, consulting maps, and making necessary trajectory corrections. However, 1 minute is adequate for the purpose of finding the character’s current location.
Skill Use: 1 minute for simple location; 1d5 hours for plotting courses or routes
