Goblin Queen (She/Her/Hers)
And also nobody ever says that using Legendary Resistance can make your players feel like their choices don’t really matter so you should use it sparingly and not let them find out you’re doing it.It’s intentionally ignoring the dice rolls a number of times to prolong the encounter. The only difference is that it was written down somewhere that this could be done.
If it’s a custom creature, sure. Though, even in that case I’m always going to go with 3 uses, because that’s how many times every monster in the books that has it can use it. But more importantly, it has a fixed limit. It’s a resource that can be spent a specific number of times to achieve a specific result, not just fiat.Presumably you have decided how many uses that creature has.
Or they just have basic pattern recognition skills. But more importantly, I announce when I’m using the ability, and everyone’s fine with it. Could the same be said of fudging the result of a die roll? I would bet not.Nobody know apart from you right? Unless the players are looking in the MM and holding the DM to account for the number of times written there?
