Character is going to the Dwarven city Gillham from there will make a stealth check activate lurking spider stance and speak in elvish language if not spotted or have Dwarf looking around i will shoot an arrow at the closest Dwarf with a note saying your kings next, in response to Lolth’s last command. (Stealth Check: 31) 16+11+4(Aspect of Lurking Spider+Ambush)
DM: First your stealth check is only a 29 because ambush states specifically allies gain a +2 to stealth this does not include you. Then you do start traveling to where you have the idea that the dwarven city of Gillham is but get lost in all the mountains that look alike. You have spent a total of two days looking for any signs of the dwarves but find nothing. Use up 2 days worth of rations.
Since I’m stealthed and not want to ask for directions i’ll use dungeoneering and nature to find city i.e flora fauna footprints debris etc that might lead me to the city Dungeoneering is 24 (15+9) Nature is 29 (20+9) if i still havent found my way. On top of that if I still havent found my way or unsure I also use my perception and insight to listen for fighting, or celebrating or any noises that are human. perception 25 (16+9) insight 18 (14+4)
DM: Actually the amount of skill checks that you just did caused conflicting results. Your dungeoneering pointed you one way while nature told you to go another. When applying the insight check to this you choose to go the dungeoneering path over the nature path. During your time you listen and look for any sign of people but hear and see no one. However, based on this you are almost positive that no one has seen you in the past 3 days. Also this means your waterskin is now empty and you are down to 7 days of rations.
In that case I will use the nature route on account of that was the higher of the two picks the insight check was a wrong option and to conserve food i’ll hunt should i roll seperate prception and nature? as well as listen for water using perception. If so Nature is 25 (16+9) and perception is 23 (14+9)
DM: Your nature check for food finds you food and water so your waterskin is restocked and you now have 11 days of food. However, you can not decide which dice rolls were used. As those previous dice rolls were already done. The new perception check yeilds no new results as you don’t see anything out of the ordinary. By the way it was probably a better idea to use a day to gather food as rolling the same check twice in a row leads to a -5 penalty. So you have currently found food but are unable to take the path granted by the previous nature check due to an insight failed roll. Along with I rolled a saving throw for you at the point which also failed.
That case i switch my at will stance to aspect of the falcon giving me 9+2-3) and Nature 24 (20+9-5) CRIT!!!!! I also did a second perception and nature ONLY if i needed to and as a precaution in case you said yes.
