Begon, I'm a bit frustrated about the relationship between the map and the posting. There's no question that IC and OOC Renata, who was very wary of the shadows, would have been keeping in protection distance of both the others if possible (Tarton only if not b/c he went for the orb, but I could see that being a random DM choice Renata couldn't cover both). I've checked the map pretty regularly, but usually it hasn't reflected what has happened most recently. (IIRC, at my last look she was beside both of them.) To try to cover these bases I posted that she was basically escorting the other two out of the room, protectively. It seems too easy to get caught between posts and map changes.

I see your point and the easy fix is that if anyone cannot move their token when they post they should Ooc tell me where they want to be. In this instance, you were escorting them out. Tarton returned to the statue to replace the orb. In your post you stated that you waited for your companions to exit the room first. Tarton never returned to the exit as the shadow attacked the minute he replaced the orb.

You stated that you covered him with your shield after rolling for initiative. I took that to mean you moved towards him to do so and therefore acted after the shadow. However as your protection is a reaction it still should have covered Tarton. I will roll disadvantage and adjust as needed.

So Renata was next to Tarton before the combat started. I think this makes sense like the relative position to Maja who was waiting at the door frame as she didn't want to leave on her own.

Yeah, that's the way I was imagining it - staying close to whomever was closest to the shadows.
