I'm currently building a simple skill challenge, but I'm stuck. I need some more primary skill check ideas if people have the time. Nature would be great. The mechanics of the skill challenge are included below.
Scaring Crow Skill Challenge
A scarecrow is being attacked by swarms of black crows in a corn field. You can hear the straw-man screaming for help as more crows circle the creature.
Set-up: The PC’s must scare or drive the birds out of the corn field and away from the scarecrow man. If the PC’s do not aid the scarecrow the birds will rip the straw-man apart.
Complexity: 1 (requires 4 successes before 2 failures).
Experience Points: 500
Primary Skills: Athletics, Bluff, Intimidate, Nature. Each player must make at least one skill check.
Athletics (DC 25): You swing a stick, staff, sword or some other long implement around swatting and knocking the crows off the straw-man.
Bluff (DC 25): You create the sound of a large predator like a lion to frighten some of the birds away.
Intimidate (DC 25): You threaten the birds by yelling, shouting and waving your arms around to scare some of the birds away.
Nature (DC 25): You ?
Success: The PC’s scare the crows away from the straw-man, who has straw scattered all over the ground, but it appears to still be alive. The scarecrow will thank the PC’s.
Failure: The crows are not scared away and instead attack the PC’s in swarms.
