In the DMG, it describes group skill checks as electing a lead character and the other characters aiding him. Would it work like this in a conversation (skill challenge)?.
- Lay out the primary and secondary skills needed.
- Roll for initiative.
- Roll for a skill check for "Ben" (primary or secondary); the group aids the result.
This is a group skill check.
Sam rolls his skill check since he's second in initiative order. Could the group help him also, or does it just need to be the lead character — for this example, Ben?.
Also can the group aid the lead character next turn if the challenge isn't finished, so they can help the lead character more than once in a skill challenge?
