Sometimes characters will want to listen at a door before they enter a room to check if anyone is inside. Listen rolls are made on a d6. Humans can detect a sound on a roll of 1, and other races on a 1 or 2.
This is assuming, of course, that there is something making a sound beyond the door! As with opening doors, each character only gets one chance to hear the noise, if any.
Thieves get a better chance to hear anything that’s there by using their Listen skill. It is also a d6 check, but varies based on class level.
