DC

Currently, D&D is mainly built around a single concept; the “difficulty check” or DC. Basically, any time you want to perform any action, whether it’s kicking open a door, picking a lock, wooing a bar maiden, or stabbing a 20th level drow vampire in the chest with a +5 wooden stake, you perform a difficulty roll. The player performing the action rolls a 1d20, a single 20 sided die for you non-nerds, adds any modifier like they’re skill, an attribute, or an attack modifier, and sees if that total number is greater than the DC of the action. If you’re trying to stab that vampire, you roll 1d20, add all your attack modifiers, and check it against the vampire’s armor class (AC) which is, really, just a DC like anything else.
