Extended Activity

The Player's Handbook mentions there are rules for this in the Dungeon Master's Guide, but in point of fact these rules do not exist.

Normal non-combat activity assumes a character can perform one action a round for 10 hours a day. This includes such things as marching eight hours, working eight hours, and so on. But sometimes, characters want to exceed these limits for longer periods; either to work more than eight hours in a day, or to perform more than one activity each round. Examples include marching and scouting or marching and sustaining a power.

Extended Activity:

Action Modifier
Staying active more than 10 hours -5
Two actions each round -5
Three actions each round -10
  • Coordinated Extended Actions: A group can assist each other at this task. Each member makes an Endurance check; the high roller's check result is used, others can assist. There is a -2 penalty for each member of the team.
  • Try Again: It is possible to keep going even after the time is up, but everyone who does so must spend a healing surge. This allows another check for extended activity. A character without any remaining healing checks cannot participate in extended activity.
