    Is there no way to use the barbarian to bash open chests? I don't have a rogue, my wizard can't cast knock (prohibited) and my socerer doesn't know the spell. I always figured I could bash chests like in the old rules... can't you?

    you definitely need a Rogue for this game.

    there should be some Rogue NPCs you can add to your party... or add another PC to your party from the Hommlett Inn by clicking on the "book" beside where the innkeeper is standing.

    no, you can't bash chests.

    Good question, as I've started a 'single class challenge' game with bards, and at level 3 am unable to open any chests, even when my human bard has 16 dex, skill focus(pick lock)), and open lock 6. Any advice would be very welcome!

    Hmm, that must be because you installed Liv's mod. One of the things that it does is increase the DC of many chests.

    Maybe if you tried with a Halfling bard it would have been easier. If I'm not mistaken they have some bonuses to some of the thief abilities...
