In 5e to escape a Grapple check, I know you roll athletics (str) or acrobatics (dex) opposed by an athletics (str) check.
In the Otyugh entry in the Monster Manual it doesn't say there's any check, instead it assigns a set DC for an "escape" (DC 13... which is a str check with a 10 assigned as the "roll").
So the question is:
- Does the Otyugh actually make a roll in this instance (like the general rule) or does it have a set DC (for the specific case)
- OR is it just a poorly communicated version of the GENERAL rule being played out?
A little clarification on this would be AWESOME. In the event of a "specific vs general" scenario, what actually is the "escape" roll? What modifier is applied? None?
