Knights of Albion
Komodo Dragon Tracking
The Hero’s sense of smell improves to Amazing Rank and they can locate and track smells from many miles away without rolling.
Also if they pass a region where their quarry has been in the recent past (rank number / 5 days) they can pick up the trail again (the oldest trail successfully tracked that we know of was 13 days, when a bloodhound handler named Norman Wilson and his three Bloodhounds (Doc Holiday, Queen Guinevere, and Big Nose Kate) successfully tracked a scent trail of three missing people lost in the “wet, dense forests of Western Oregon.” – note that cool damp environments with little or no wind are the ideal places to track a scent.
City environments cause a disadvantage, as there are many other distracting smells (-1CS).
The target can attempt to mask their smell to put off the Hero (-1CS), however a distinctive perfume or odour will prove an advantage to the Hero (+1CS).
Adverse weather and large bodies of water can have a very serious impact on the trail (up to -5CS for fast flowing river or a raging storm front washing away the trail). note that open desert and bright sunlight also cause a scent trail to ‘dry up’ very quickly
Scent based tracking uses column ‘C’ of the range table, with 120 miles being the maximum distance for Monstrous.
