If a player gets caught trespassing using the disguise module, or if they get caught stealing something, they can try a skill check that gets harder every time the player gets caught. Can this skill check eventually require a skill of over 100 for successful completion? Because you can get to 100 skill at level 8 or so if you rush it, and it feels like that might break such checks if they're capped at 100.

I've beat Outer Worlds and never saw a skill check require more than 100 in a given skill. There are a handful of end-game skill checks that actually hit 100, but none that I've seen go beyond.

    It seems that DLC (currently only Peril on Gorgon) increases that to 150, since there are plenty of hacking/lockpicking checks at 150 there.
