oops, forget that last post, I suppose it's a bit too late to be taking prepared actions while initiative is being rolled aye?

I haven't asked for initiative yet so wouldn't worry. It's coming up so we'll use the rolls for mordra and croveg but I'll make it clear when they are needed don't worry.

The way I do it in the game I DM is I ensure everyone gets a post per day then it's a free for all. It's worked so far but I can foresee that there might be an issue down the line. I think it's just important to be flexible.

Yeah i was thinking about that. Outside of combat I'm actually quite free with how you guys want to go at it. If you would rather post twice, especially if it's just speech I'm actually pro that way of doing things i think. I want it flow and if two people are talking you shouldn't have to wait for a DM post/be in any particular order. However, in combat I'll stick to the initiative, one go per round.

CR: We are not in combat yet per se, so I hope switching to sword and shield from crossbow doesn't incur a penalty just yet?

Also, do I have any cover bonus to AC for being in the brush? If so, I will revise my OOC spoiler to reflect this.

Thanks!

No swapping to your sword and shield encurs no penalties.

And as you're creeping along the edge of the bank/brush you have minimal cover. Nothing that would affect AC. If i remember right 3/4 cover gives disadvantage on attack rolls against you as well not an ac bonus.

I'm ok with that rule for cover but just to clear it up PHB5E states:

"A target with three-quarters cover has a +5 bonus
to AC and Dexterity saving throws. A target has threequarters
cover if about three-quarters o f it is covered
by an obstacle. The obstacle might be a portcullis, an
arrow slit, or a thick tree trunk."

It would seem that I would need to state that I'm hiding behind a specific tree to gain that bonus, anyway. If I'm moving through the woodland area I guess it would seem like at any given moment I could be obscured by a tree (maybe 1/2 cover? +2 AC).

Anyway you rule, I'm happy to follow

Ahh apologies you're bang on the money. Just mis remembered the rule. Yeah I'll say you have 1/2 cover as you move through the brush. The same for Tymau on the northern side of the bank.

Awesome! Thanks for that. Also, I don't want you to think I'll challenge your rules at every turn. I only looked it up because you mentioned it was from your memory.

Good stuff!

Oh please do question and ask! First time DMing I'll do my best to get everything by the book and will make a point of saying when I've home brewed or house ruled something.

I guess from everyone else's perspective, it does look like Drodin is being a fool haha. Only Jeridoon might understand since he cracked that twig and sent birds flying. Stay alive little buddy, Drodin's gonna make sure they forget all about you

@CR - do you want another stealth and/or perception check for Tymau? or is he good? I'm assuming initiative is coming asap.

No you're fine for now with previous roll. And yeah I'll need initiative for everyone after my next update so you might as well roll now. I'll try and get an update up tonight, but might be a bit stretched timewise apologies in advance!
