Secret Speech Feat 1

This Feat may contain spoilers from the Age of Ashes Adventure Path

Source Pathfinder #147: Tomorrow Must Burn pg. 73
Prerequisites trained in Deception

Choose a secret society (such as the Lacunafex or the Bellflower Network). You’ve learned that society’s secret cant or jargon, enabling you to share hidden messages when signing or speaking with others who’ve also learned it. If an observer succeeds at a Perception check against your Deception DC when you do this, they realize you are passing a message but fail to discern its content, unless they subsequently succeed at a Society check against your Deception DC. On a critical success, they learn not only the message, but also who you’re passing the message to.

Special You can take this feat multiple times. You learn the secret speech of a different society each time.
