Check: An evening’s time, a few silver pieces for buying drinks and making friends and a DC 10 Gather Information check will gain you a general idea of a city’s major news items, assuming there are no obvious reasons why the information would be withheld. The higher your check result, the better the information.
If you want to find out about a specific rumour or a specific item, obtain a map or do something else along those lines, the DC for the check is at least 15 to 25.
Action: A typical Streetwise check takes 1d4+1 hours.
Try Again: You may try this check again but it takes time. Furthermore, you may draw attention to yourself if you repeatedly pursue a certain type of information.
Special: If you have the Investigator feat, you get a +2 bonus on Streetwise checks.
Synergy: If you have five or more ranks in Streetwise, you get a +2 bonus on Streetwise checks.
