Escape Artist (Dexterity; Armor Check Penalty)
The table below gives the DCs to escape various forms of restraints.
The DC for manacles is set by their construction.
The DC noted on the table is for getting through a space where your head fits but your shoulders don’t. If the space is long you may need to make multiple checks. You can’t get through a space that your head does not fit through.
|Restraint||Escape Artist DC|
|Ropes||Binder’s Use Rope check at +10|
|Net, animate rope spell, command plants spell, control plants spell, or entangle spell||20|
|Grappler||Grappler’s grapple check result|
Making an Escape Artist check to escape from rope bindings, manacles, or other restraints (except a grappler) requires 1 minute of work. Escaping from a net or an animate rope, command plants, control plants, or entangle spell is a full-round action. Escaping from a grapple or pin is a standard action. Squeezing through a tight space takes at least 1 minute, maybe longer, depending on how long the space is.
Varies. You can make another check after a failed check if you’re squeezing your way through a tight space, making multiple check. If the situation permits, you can make additional checks, or even take 20, as long as you’re not being actively opposed.
Can be used untrained.

- If you have 5 or more ranks in Use Rope, you get a +2 bonus on Escape Artist checks when escaping from rope bonds.
