No cover/concealment or being observed: Impossible, except as noted below While running or charging: Impossible Move up to 1/2 normal speed: -0 Move between 1/2 and full normal speed, not inclusive: -5 Bluff an observer, maybe Move, then hide: -10 Hide in a round after you attack: -20 Run to cover/concealment while being observed, then Hide: -0, but people saw where you went Size modifiers as appropriate
So, the questions:
Move your normal movement while hiding would be -10? Does your entire movement have to be under cover/concealment, or can you start out from cover/concealment, move through an area where you're being observed casually (like, say, a melee), and still be hiding? Do you have to end up in cover/concealment to be hidden at the end of your movement if people could see you halfway through?
Question about Spot:
Every time you have a chance to spot something in a reactive manner you can make a Spot check without using an action.
Does this mean, if you want to try and Spot something and then do something about it, the Spot check doesn't take any time? How long does it take to spot something if you don't want to do something about it???
If this is true, exactly what is the big deal about Quick Reconnoiter granting spot & listen as a free action?
What do they mean about "reactive manner"? Does that just mean telling people what you saw?
