Skill Challenges

skill challenge is a structured roleplaying scene that can take place in any timescale (days, hours, rounds, and so on). During a skill challenge, the heroes' skills are tested against a series of complications in pursuit of an overarching goal. To win the skill challenge, the heroes must accumulate three successes before accumulating three failures.

Skill Challenge Examples: Navigate a treacherous rainforest, overload an evil wizard's magical defenses, escape a collapsing tower, survive a tsunami, win a court case against a dishonest plaintiff, search the desert for a lost caravan, sail the Tides of Terror.
