Listen (WIS)

(Player's Handbook v.3.5 variant, p. 78)


Use this skill to hear approaching enemies, to detect someone sneaking up on you from behind, or to eavesdrop on someone else's conversation.


Varies. Every time you have a chance to hear something in a reactive manner (such as when someone makes a noise or you move into a new area), you can make a Listen check without using an action. Trying to hear something you failed to hear previously is a move action.

Try again

Yes. You can try to hear something that you failed to hear previously with no penalty.
