Social Skill Challenges, Part 2D&D Insider Article
Ruling Skill Challenges
by Mike Mearls

Once again, it's time to talk skill challenges. In this month's installment, I am going to design a skill challenge for social situations. This challenge is based on a request sent in by an intrepid reader, culled from the small mountain of emails that came in. If you're new to the series, it helps to go back to last month's column to see how we got to where we are.

For this article, rather than give specific DCs, I've listed them as hard, moderate, or easy. Use the table on page 42 of the DMG to set the correct DC based on the challenge's level.
