        Hunters are deadeyes when it comes to hunting with bow and
arrow.  Using this skill, a Hunter attempts to devastate a nearby
target.  Only prey in an adjacent room may be targeted.  Hence, foes
located in the same room, or more than one room away, are not valid.
If a target moves further than one room away while the Hunter is
taking aim, the skill will fail.  However, if a prey is targeted
and then moves into the same room as the Hunter, the snipe will
still be attempted.

        If the "autoaim" option is chosen, the Hunter will attempt
to quickly locate the supplied target in the surrounding rooms.
If this mode of aiming is employed against a stealthed target, the
Hunter must succeed in spotting that prey to be able to take aim.

        Targets who have been exposed by being hit by the penetrate
skill will suffer more damage from snipe.

        The Hunter must wield a bow to be able to use this skill.

        Hunters using this skill against classes that they are
experts at hunting will do so with significantly more success.
