Through pantomime, you communicate with a nonhostile creature you can see, even if it does not speak your language. The creature must have an Intelligence score higher than 3. You can communicate simple ideas and concepts, such as figuring out where a monster went, where one might find fresh water, if there’s a safe place to camp, and so on. Conveying complex ideas might require a skill challenge, at the DM’s discretion.
