    I scored early success and was trying to give everyone else a shot. My character didn't even have a great list to work from. Come on folks I know you got skills. I will be glad to try an assist in one of my lesser skills if someone else can do the primary.

    My dude has no skills that are even arguably applicable, and he failed miserably on his aid-another attempt, even!

    The skill challenge is not intended to be difficult. Just give it a shot.

    Remember that succeeding in a skill challenge is not an auto-win for the adventure or is failing a skill challenge likely to derail things. It just changes what happens next. I don't want people to be afraid to do things just because it might lead to failure.

    As with anything, bad rolls doth make fools of us all. Still, your point is well-taken. Players are a success-obsessed bunch, by and large. The prospect of failing fills us with fear and righteous wrath.

    Have we started a new 'round'?

    Sure. Anyone who has an idea, go ahead and post.

    I'm not really a "by round" sort of DM when it comes to these things. I prefer that everyone participate, but that often leads to players doing really dumb things that make little sense, just to get the "round" moving along.

    Does that mean that Questor can try to 'aid another' again? Too bad there's not much call for Cha-based skills this time around.

    Any of them could be useful if you can think of a way to apply them.

    I think I'm going to drop this game. I'm really in too many PBPs again; I added a bunch while I wasn't working very much, and I've really lingered as a rather inactive player outside of combat / skill challenges in too many of them. Sorry. I know Cassi leaving would render the party leader-less, which is half the reason why I haven't left before.
