[top]Gather Information (Cha)

An evening?s time, a few gold pieces for buying drinks and making friends, and a DC 10 Gather Information check get you a general idea of a city?s major news items, assuming there are no obvious reasons why the information would be withheld. The higher your check result, the better the information.
If you want to find out about a specific rumor, or a specific item, or obtain a map, or do something else along those lines, the DC for the check is 15 to 25, or even higher.
