You Can Walk the Walk...But Can You Talk the Talk?
When it comes to games, Dungeons & Dragons is arguably one of the more jargon-loaded. It's time to demystify some of those terms...at least the ones that apply to Dungeons & Dragons Online (DDO).
Give me a DC25 UMD check.
Make an opposed grapple check.
I asked Zed, one of DDO @ Ten Ton Hammers resident D&D aficionados, for some examples of D&D jargon. Those were the examples he gave me. My response was a slack-jawed, Huh?
I learned that Give me a DC25 UMD check is something a dungeon master might say to ask a player to make a Use Magic Device roll versus a Difficulty Class of 25. (I dont know about you, but Im still saying, Huh?) An opposed grapple check is, according to Zed, A combat option. Essentially a creature/player is attempting to grapple and pin another creature. Opposed checks are made. Each character/creature has a basic grapple score (BAB + Str +Other) and they add that to a d20.
Yeah, that makes sense. (I think.)
