D&D Context Edit

  • "Taking 20" is an actual game mechanic. By taking 20, the characters attempts to perform a skill repeatedly, to make sure it will succeed. This is equivalent to the player rolling the die (1d20) for this skill check as many times as necessary until getting a 20. There's also a related "take 10" option.
