Survival (Wisdom)Edit

Use this skill to follow tracks, hunt wild game, guide a party safely through frozen wastelands, identify signs that owlbears live nearby, predict the weather, or avoid quicksand and other natural hazards.

Check:Edit

You can keep yourself and others safe and fed in the wild. The table below gives the DCs for various tasks that require survival checks.

Survival does not allow you to follow difficult tracks unless you are a ranger, or have the Track feat (see the Restriction section bellow).

Survival DCTask
10Get along in the wild. Move up to one-half your overland speed while hunting and foraging (no food or water supplies needed). You can provide food and water for one other person for every 2 points your check exceeds 10.
15Gain a +2 bonus on all Fortitude saves against severe weather while moving up to one-half your overland speed, or gain a +4 bonus if you remain stationary. You may grant the same bonus to one other character for every 1 point by which your Survival check result exceeds 15
15Keep from getting lost or avoid natural hazards such as quicksand.
15Predict the weather up to 24 hours in advance. For every 5 points by which your Survival check result exceeds 15.
VariesFollow tracks (see the Track feat).

Action:Edit

Varies. A single Survival check may represent activity over the course of hours or a full day. A survival check made to find tracks is at least a full-round action, and it may take even longer at the DM's discretion.

Try Again:Edit

Varies. For getting along in the wild or for gaining the fortitude save bonus noted in the table above, you make a Survival check once every 24 hours. the result of that check applies until the next check is made. To avoid getting lost or avoid natural hazards, you make a Survival check whenever the situation calls for one. Retries to avoid getting lost in a specific situation or to avoid a specific natural hazard are not allowed. For finding tracks, you can retry a failed check after 1 hour (outdoors) or 10 minutes (indoors) of searching.

Restriction:Edit

While anyone can use Survival to find tracks (regardless of the DC), or to follow tracks when the DC is 10 or lower, only a ranger (or a character with the Track feat,) can use survival to follow tracks when the task has higher DC.

Special:Edit

  • If you have 5 or more ranks in survival, you can automatically determine where true north lies in relation to yourself.

SynergyEdit

  • If you have 5 or more ranks in Knowledge (dungeoneering), you get a +2 on Survival checks made while underground.
  • If you have 5 or more ranks in Knowledge (nature), you get a +2 on Survival checks in aboveground, natural environments (aquatic, desert, forest, hill, marsh, mountains, and plains).
  • If you have 5 or more ranks in Knowledge (geography), you get a +2 on Survival checks made to keep from getting lost or avoid natural hazards.
  • If you have 5 or more ranks in Knowledge (the planes), you get a +2 on Survival checks made while on other planes.
  • If you have 5 or more ranks in search, you get a +2 bonus on Survival checks to find or follow tracks.
