Sneak Suppression
Subsequently crouching to return to sneak, or using concealing skills such as the Nightblade's Shadow Cloak, will have whatever success in hiding you again that they would in any combat situation: mixed, depending on your circumstances. However, if you can regain sneak, you can immediately attack again and have the usual sneak multipliers apply.
=== Sneak Suppression ===
Sometimes your ability to sneak is suppressed. There are various things that can cause this:
*An NPC guard with a lamp, found in places associated with the [[ON:Thieves Guild|Thieves Guild]], [[ON:Dark Brotherhood|Dark Brotherhood]], or [[ON:Morrowind|Morrowind]] DLCs. While sneaking, you will see a shining circle on the ground around them. You cannot sneak within this circle, and possibly for a few seconds after leaving it. If you are in a restricted area or have a bounty on your head, the guard will generally try to arrest or attack you if you are spotted.
*Some traps in these same areas can temporarily inhibit your ability to sneak. Try to keep an eye out for any trip wires or leaky pots which can explode and deal damage in addition to suppressing your stealth.
*In PVP zones, other players may use a Potion or Poison with the [[ON:Detection|Detection]] trait against you, preventing you from entering stealth unless you can [[ON:Cleansing|purge]] the effect somehow.
*The [[ON:Magelight|Magelight]] and [[ON:Revealing Flare|Revealing Flare]] abilities can also inhibit stealth in PVP areas. (You may also use these abilities to detect NPCs who are using stealth, though these are also much more common in PVP zones.)
