20-Odd Questions: COMIC BOOK CREATORS
10. Mike Oeming: If you had the possibility of getting a date, but your mom wanted you to clean the basement, what sided die would you have to roll to get out of cleaning?
In this d20 world we live in now, there is only one die…the d20. However, there are many possibilities on how to escape from cleaning the basement. First would be a Bluff roll, opposed by her Sense Motive roll. Second would be a Diplomacy roll against a DC of 20. Third would be a combination of Hide in Shadows and Move Silently, to try and sneak out. If she is within 10 feet of you, she can oppose your roll with a Spot or Listen check. Lastly, there’s the ever-popular Sneak Attack against her base AC of 10, unless she’s wearing armor.
