Usage: sneak [on|off]
Used for sneaking (moving in and out of rooms without anyone knowing). The sneak command will toggle on and off your ability to sneak.
Sneaking is an excellent way of getting close to an enemy without them noticing you, and also the perfect way of retreating if you do not wish to be followed. Of course people will have a harder time noticing you the better you are at sneaking and the less aware they are.
It takes great agility to master this skill, and it helps to have good eyesight.
The chances of a succesful sneak depend on the
terrain and the number of
people you are trying to hide
from. You must be on foot: sneaking on horseback is impossible. It is
impossible to sneak successfully when you are fleeing a room.
Hobbits (and Elves to a lesser extent) sneak well, Dwarves not so well, and Trolls are totally inept at sneaking.
After sneaking successfully, you are hidden from the people in the room, but if they look for you they will find you instantly.
You move slower when sneaking.
Ok, you'll try to move silently for a while.
You stop sneaking.
Sometimes you stop sneaking (e.g. due to fleeing). In that case, you will not be able to sneak for a very short time. Your sneak-indicator in the prompt will change to a "s". You receive a message when you "feel stealthy again".
