Nature's checks are based on the Intelligence ability score.

You have picked up knowledge and skills related to nature, including finding your way through the wilderness, recognizing natural hazards, dealing with and identifying natural creatures, and living off the land.

If you have selected this skill as a trained skill, your knowledge represents formalized study or extensive experience, and you have a better chance of knowing esoteric information in this field.


Make a Nature check to locate and gather enough food and water to last for 24 hours.

Forage: 1 hour.

  • DC: DC 15 to find food and water for one person, DC 25 for up to five people. The DM might adjust the DC in different environments (5 lower in a cultivated environment or 5 higher in a barren one).
  • Success: You find enough food and water for 24 hours.
  • Failure: You find no food or water. You can forage again but in a different area.

Handle AnimalEdit

Make a Nature check to calm down a natural beast, teach a natural beast some tricks, or otherwise handle a natural beast. Handling a natural beast is usually part of a skill challenge that requires a number of successes.

Nature KnowledgeEdit

Examples of Nature knowledge include determining cardinal directions or finding a path (common), recognizing a dangerous plant or another natural hazard (master), or predicting a coming change in the weather (expert).

Monster KnowledgeEdit


Make a Nature check to identify a creature that has the natural origin (a creature of the natural world). See “Monster Knowledge Checks”.
