The mage can hide himself from other willworkers’ magical senses when he attempts to scrutinize or dispel their magic.

Mechanics: Whenever the caster scrutinizes a person, a reflexive (Int + Subterfuge) roll is made for the spy to contest the subject’s usual reflexive (Wits + Composure) roll to notice they're being scrutinized. If the ''Hide Scrutiny'' exceeds the target’s successes, his spying goes undetected.

Normally, mages can't sense if their spells are being tampered with, but the “Sense the Threads” ability, allows a mage to monitor the status of his spells. With ''Hide Scrutiny'', a mage can attempt to hide from such a mage’s magical senses. If so, whenever the caster scrutinizes such a vigilant caster’s spells or tries to dispel them, a reflexive (Int + Subterfuge) roll is made for the spy, contested by the subject’s reflexive (Wits + Occult) roll. If the ''Hide Scrutiny'' exceeds the caster’s successes, his spying goes undetected.
