[RPG] How many rounds are in a minute


Let's say a debuff lasts a "minute" on an enemy. We all know a round takes approx 6 seconds.

Is this 6 seconds per person? or just for that particular person.

IE: Let's say it's 4 heroes vs 2 enemies. 1 enemy has a debuff that lasts a minute.

Would the debuff last 10 rounds (aka 10*6 seconds=1minute)
or would the debuff last (6*6=36, so 2 rounds) if we cycle through each person.

Best Answer

The debuff would last 10 rounds.

Time section of D&D Basic Rules Chapter 8 (official, online, & free)

Basic Rules p.69:

A round represents about 6 seconds in the game world. During a round, each participant in a battle takes a turn.

6 seconds for a round, and the round consists of all the turns in that round.
