So, what's going on with this game?  Agita posted and then we all crapped out.

I think holidays and us getting distracted did it in. Time to remember where we were.

I don't know if it can, but it clearly would look like a prank.

I must say you have an impeccable sense of timing.
You all started posting again the exact week I started my internship, when I had my head too full of adjusting to working eight hours a day on a real schedule to do much of anything. Now that I've stabilized and gotten used to it, I should be able to keep up again. Probably not with fancy round by round encounter maps, though.
I'll aim to update tomorrow.

Don't worry about it. Professionalism often demands it.

It just so happens smartassery is Heylian's area of expertise.

Just as long as you don't take it personally because I really wasn't expecting Pieron to turn into such an asshole.   :p

Nah, I know you're cool. If it were someone I didn't know very well I might wonder though.  :P

Just for you I double checked my character sheet.  "Race: Human"   :P

Edit: I'm torn.  Pieron is not amused but I found that to be hilarious so I'm not sure how much more attention I should be giving you.

Does the cover provide any benefit against spells, aside from ranged attack ones?

Wow. +5 to AC in 5E is... HUGE.  :twitch Must be like one of the few instances where you don't just get disadvantage or something.

Welp. That's 4 damage if you add dex to damage. Otherwise it's barely a hit, IF it hits.

The bonus also applies to Dexterity saves (in general, not just from spells) you can still see them if you squint, now that you know they're there, so spells that only need you to see a target work fine.

That it is. Of course, you can circumvent cover by walking around it.

It would be helpful to see where we are on the map, so that we understand the tactical situation.

Yeah, didn't have time for that during the week. The assumption is that you start near the left edge of the map I posted way back, which I'll go ahead and edit into the latest IC post and also reproduce here, like in the leftmost and second-leftmost row of squares. Except for Pieron, who was moving towards the stream when you all heard the goblins, and would probably be on its left embankment.
So, if you want to rush the goblins instead of shielding the other party members, it's conceivably possible for you to get to the edge of the thickets and shoot at the goblins without them getting the benefit of cover. Only one character out of Heylian, Zuzie, and Kovoir could do that by my count, though, if we're talking making a move and also taking your action.

There's also one more option I overlooked: If you move right up to the thickets, they provide only half cover for +2 AC instead of +5 (you all are also getting this cover against the goblins, but the faster one rolled high enough to hit Heylian anyway). They can also be moved through, costing double movement. So you could also move closer instead of around and mitigate the cover.

If you want to do either of those things, you can keep your rolls and say you hit the goblin (which puts it at 3 hp).
