You work at a pace born from longevity that enhances your
thoroughness. You can voluntarily spend twice as much
time as normal on a Perception check or skill check to gain
a +2 circumstance bonus to that check. You also don’t treat
a natural 1 as worse than usual on these checks; you get a
critical failure only if your result is 10 lower than the DC. For example, you could get these
benefits if you spent 2 actions to Seek, which normally takes 1 action. You can get these
benefits during exploration by taking twice as long exploring as normal, or in downtime by
spending twice as much downtime.
The GM might determine a situation doesn’t grant you a benefit if a delay would be directly counterproductive to your success, such as a tense negotiation with an impatient creature.
