Choosing option A in Question 3 while creating your founder
Taking classes in Theatre
Being taught Covert Ops by another Liberal
Sneaking past Conservatives while in Disguise in non-public areas
Bluffing Conservatives when in a building where they are Alarmed
Professions with this skill:
A good strategy to train this skill quickly is to go in a location where there are only a few specialized conservatives (e.g. the internet cafe) with spraypaint and a police uniform, spray the paint and just walk around. Being in a public area you are less suspicious and it will be more difficult for the conservatives to find out. As soon as someone discovers you, just exit the location and try again.
It's faster if you already have some disguise skill, if you don't just go to theatre class for one or two levels.
- Each location has an appropriate disguise. If your squad member is in an appropriate disguise, his armor will show up in Liberal Green; if not, in Conservative Red. Lack of an appropriate disguise automatically fails a Disguise check but Liberals may still remain undetected through Stealth. In the event that a Liberal is Stealthy but is also in appropriate Disguise, Stealth is checked first.
- A partial disguise is possible in apartments for Liberals wearing Death Squad or police uniforms.
- Transgendered men and androgynous people need a disguise check to enter the Gentlemen's Club.
- Low-quality, damaged, or bloody clothing makes a Disguise check more difficult.
- Checkpoints will automatically deny a Squad with bloody, damaged, or low-quality clothing.
- If the Squad has hostages or corpses with them, the Disguise check is much more difficult.
- Disguises can be looted from slain Conservatives, obtained at The Oubliette or Department Store, or created through the Tailoring skill.
- Some disguises increase the effectiveness of Interrogation.
- High-Wisdom Conservatives are harder to fool with disguises.
- Carrying guns makes the Disguise check harder. Some guns are easier to conceal than others; a shotgun is concealable only under a trenchcoat, for example; but handguns can be concealed anytime.
- Standing around near Conservatives while in disguise makes it gradually harder and harder to avoid being noticed. Keep moving!
