From the angle that Donnel is hiding, it looks like he has to move toward the edge of the building to get a shot...but then he'd have no movement to hide.

But the image doesn't take in to account the height of the Giant. If he's taller than the building, then we can just peak over the peak of the roof and shoot and then hide again. Anyways, I didn't yet add a stealth check so I'll edit one in if it matters.

The giant isn't taller than the building, or it would be somewhat uncomfortable for them to live in. The wooden edge of the roof is 20ft up, the peak is closer to 30. I'd probably let you find a spot to hide just about anywhere other than near the edge (he can crouch down), but depending on where you shoot from, I might award the Giant some cover (which would only come up a problem if your to-hit roll is really close to his AC).

Then Donnell will hide. You can decide where on the roof makes the most sense.

Sneak: 1D20+8 = [14]+8 = 22

So, I've been thinking about how I post technical stuff (like rolls and the like) and how long it takes me cut-n-pasting, moving between screens, etc. I'm going to try to streamline my workload. It'll be a work in progress, but two things are likely to occur: 1) My "style" will be less consistent; 2) I might not post my rolls, and you'll just have to trust me on it when I say how much damage you take or if my monster made its save. I figure after all this time, we've built enough trust for that. It's not like I expect any of you are "auditing" my work very often.

Any objections? I need to speed myself up. I rolled the round in two of my games yesterday and spent something like 3 hours on my laptop (I may have been involved in a few discussions too, so it probably wasn't ALL running the game!) But either way... I gotta find a way to speed things up. One way may be to roll real dice. We shall see.

No objection. You have more than earned my trust!

All good. We all need to have fun and managing rolls is tedious, and you have a bunch to manage. So definitely do what’s works best. And besides, in table top games, most dms roll behind their screens! Cheers!
