Skill Challenge #1: Escape from Slavery
A scalable, complexity 3 skill challenge for characters stupid enough to get caught!
8 successes to succeed, 3 failures to fail.
In the past, I have operated skill challenges in a number of different ways with varying results, and one thing I’ve learned is that there is not one perfect technique to conducting skill challenges that seems to work for every situation and type of challenge. In certain situations, for instance, I prefer to use a more informal type of skill challenge with no failures like I did in our most recent side trek post, "Mysterious Tracks." In others, I opt for a more conventional skill challenge as outlined in the fourth-edition DMG.
