Skills on Sunday - From Pathfinder. Escape Artist: Allows you to slip out of bonds and grapples. https://roll20.net/compendium/pathfinder/Skills:Escape%20Artist#content
Pathfinder definitely has a much more crunchy rules set, and they create specific checks for many different types of situations. In D&D 5e, which most people are probably playing these days, the skills are much broader. But this particular skill gives several nice situations that a DM or player in 5e could use to flavor their skill rolls to escape different kinds of bonds or maneuver in different types of situations:
Bindings or manacles
Probably the most unique of these checks is the “tight spaces” check, which is used when a character is trying to squeeze through an opening that their head will fit through but their shoulders won’t. This might be used if you have a rogue character that has described themselves as a contortionist or “double-jointed” in the manner of some acrobats that you might have seen performing in a Cirque du Soleil or similar show.
What’s the best use you have seen or that you can think of for this skill?
