d20 is a term in Sword Coast Legends.
- The d20 is the iconic 20 sided die that is the basis for for many of the most important actions in D&D. Typically when confronted with an action, a player rolls a single d20 and to that roll adds any relevant Stat modifiers called for in the action or effect. For example a weapon attack will comprise a roll of the d20 + Strength or Dexterity Modifier. That number is then compared to the enemy's AC to determine if the attack is successful. Damage is calculated after, using various other dice such as a d4, d6, d8, d10, d12 depending on the type of weapon being used. In Sword Coast Legends, attack rolls are done automatically in real time without player intervention.
