For instance, you want to climb a treacherous wall of doom and horror. Its DC is 22.

You have 16 strength(+3) and 2 ranks in climb(+2), that's +5 to your 1d20 roll. You have a chance! A small chance, but a chance.

If a skill is a class skill for any class you have, you get +3 more for having any ranks in it.

In the above example, if climb was a class skill, you'd have +8 total.


Ok, that makes sense. :) But where did you get the (+3) and (+2)?

16 strength is worth +3. You have 2 ranks, each rank is +1.

All skills have a linked stat. Climb uses strength, appraise uses intelligence, diplomacy uses charisma, and so on.
