D&D How Long Is A Round ?

A round is a unit of time during combat. The precise duration varies depending on the specific combat situation, but a single round consists of six seconds.

Initiative is rolled for at the beginning of each round, and it determines the order in which characters act during that round. The initiative result for a character is also used to determine when they are able to use reaction abilities.

At the start of each round, all combatants roll initiative (d20 + Dexterity modifier + other modifiers). Characters act in order from highest initiative result to lowest, but they don’t necessarily get to take an action at any given time. A character’s turn comes up when they have an opportunity to take an action (such as making an attack or using a skill) and no one else has had that opportunity since their last turn.
