5E [OOC] Uller's Out of the Abyss

Okay. Thanks for the clarification. Then I'll treat him more like the luggage than a character. If luggage goes over we'll make a check to see if he was properly secured.

Ouch! I guess Erevan's gotta save you guys, eh?

Luckily, due to time zones, it's a whole new dice day here... Now I'll just have to wait my turn and hope you won't be dead or paralyzed by the time the noble elf swoops in for the rescue.

I have always played bless that it affects any kind of check. Attack, save, ability check. I don't know if this was a houserule I picked up in 3e or if it was RAW in some edition...but it has always just made sense to me. Bless is a prayer intnded to give the subject a little extra luck. I'd like to stick with that. But before we do...is there someother low level cleric spell that gives an edge to ability checks? I don't want bless to overlap other spells that are already intended to do something similar.

The cantrip guidance is for ability checks. I have had cleric players spam it for any ability check that they have to make, which I generally allow for any check that is made intentionally. (Provided that they have the time to cast.)

Guidance is definitely easy to abuse. I'm playing a cleric right now and try not to spam it, lest I become the D&D version of that person who prays to find a good parking spot at the mall (sorry, grandma).

One of my friends equated it to Donnie Yen's character on Rogue One. The d4 is with me, I am one with d4s...

So I let it go. :p

Yeah, I don't see anything wrong with characters "abusing" something like Guidance. You gave up another cantrip for it. Gaining essentially a +2 or so in exchange for an action seems fair.

Okay. We'll go with RAW.

Speaking of Eldeth...

I know she was a scout, and the mods to her rolls that we've seen suggest that she does in fact use the Scout statblock. If that's the case, I'd like for her and Bert to switch duties, since she should have advantage on perception checks from Keen Hearing and Sight.
 

SunGold

Visitor
No, he needs light too, which is part of why he's in Surana's boat. But his perception rolls are ok anyway because of the "torch." Advantage would still be nicer, though.

His Survival roll is also just slightly better than hers, so they'd both be swapping into duties they're better at.
