Skill Mastery (Ex): The rook becomes so confident in the use of certain skills that he can use them reliably even under adverse conditions. Upon gaining this ability, he selects a number of skills equal to 3 + his Intelligence modifier. When making a skill check with one of these skills, he may take 10 even if stress and distractions would normally prevent him from doing so. A rook may gain this special ability multiple times, selecting additional skills for skill mastery to apply to each time.
