So have a question. Some boon's have a 4 word skill check, somethin like:
dexterity
Athleticism
Wisdom
Perception
10

How does this work? Do I need both dexterity-athleticism and wisdom-perception, do I roll al die and get al modifiers, do I choose one. Say I dont have atleticism, nor perception, do I use dex and wisdom die, or 2 d4.
Confused about how to do these checks.

I think it means you can use one of the four skills to attempt the check. Not every character may have some of the checks, but those that do can use them.

That just means that you must pass one of those 4 checks, with a difficulty of 10.

This is from the English rulebook. I realize you might be using a translated edition, especially given your mention of Athleticism, which isn't a term in the English edition. I'm guessing that is how Acrobatics got translated.

RotR Rulebook p11 wrote:
Attempting a Check Each check to defeat or acquire a card lists one or more skills; you may choose any of the listed skills for your check. For example, if a check lists Dexterity, Disable, Strength, and Melee, you may use any one of those skills to attempt your check.


So you pick any of the skills above the difficulty number and you attempt the check with that skill. Whatever skills you don't pick, you aren't making that kind of check. However...

Let us pretend we have Seoni and Ezren. Seoni has put 1 skill feat into her Charisma and 1 skill feat into her Intelligence. So she has Intelligence: d6 +2, Charisma: d12 +1 and Arcane: Charisma +2. Ezren has put 3 skill feats into his Intelligence. So he has Intelligence: d12 +3 and Arcane: Intelligence + 2.

Now let us say there was a check of
Intelligence
Arcane
12

If Ezren where attempting that check, he could choose Intelligence or Arcane. If he choose Intelligence, he'd roll his d12 and add his +3 skill feat modifier. If he chose Arcane he'd roll his d12 Intelligence and add his +3 skill feat modifier and his +2 Arcane modifier.

If Seoni were attempting that check, she could choose Intelligence or Arcane. If she chose Intelligence, she'd roll her d6 Intelligence and add her +2 skill feat modifier. If she chose Arcane, she'd roll her d12 Charisma and add her +1 skill feat modifier and her +2 Arcane.

When Ezren makes an Arcane check, he is also making an Intelligence check. When Seoni makes an Arcane check, she is also making a Charisma check.

So even though you might be tempted to assume some relation between the various skills, don't. You choose a skill to attempt the check with and ignore the existence of the other skills. If Merisiel makes a Perception check, she is also making a Wisdom check because Merisiel's character card says her Perception relates to her Wisdom.

I hope that all helps. Good luck on your adventure.
