Making sure I am calling this right. Most creatures have a 30 ft walk speed knights are faster with a 50+ ft. they hit low have low health but a high chance to hit you). p74 You can make an opportunity attack when a hostile creature that you can see moves out of your reach. To make the opportunity attack, This instance (This would be them moving towards you still being in your range and the others ) only leaving an enemy's reach provokes; moving from one position in their reach to another does not provoke. Being forced out of a creature's reach also doesn't provoke, as when pushed or falling. So it would not I am seeing unless someones walk speed was less then 30 ft say 25 or lower. Aeoli has 25 swim speed so he would be allowed to as the Knight is technically moving out of his range. Moving to attack doesn't do so for the most part.
Ranged attacks do not provoke; from the Basic Rules, p73:
Most creatures can reach you from their walk speed
Rawdet tail does impact the Guard Knight. they are wounded heavily.
From what I see it doesn't work quite like that or any creature who makes an attack would have this happen to them as not all fighters arent gonna be near each other (Which would be broken) from what I see if one is disengaging like running away or dropping their guard this provokes the AOO or attacking a creature then moving backwards (providing they are again disengaging again provokes the AOO or also what I see two common methods of avoiding such an attack—the 5-foot-step and the withdraw action. Performing a Distracting Act: Some actions, when performed in a threatened square, provoke attacks of opportunity as you divert your attention from the battle. I Hope this helps clarify this better
Thats what the rook guard did. The rook was with Melvi and the other guard in a cluster.
Rawdet, our Paladin, druid, and monk came in melee range. Darius is 30feet away in a sea anemone. In order for the rook to attack Darius he would have to walk away from four people in melee range and walk the 30 feet to hit me. That would prompt four AOO unless he took a Disengage action.
Rawdet Sun looks satisfied. “We have fought well this day. I say we scatter like barracuda after a kill. We can each find another pawn and destroy it. Meet back here in one month’s time.”He nods, satisfied with the idea and swims off to the south, looking to cause havoc in the squid-lord's demesne.
((With back stage conversation I’ve realized this is not the game for me. I apologise if I bumped any players out of the running with my application. This was a valuable learning experience for me. I appreciate the change to play with you all. I didn’t want to leave in the middle of combat. Hopefully this timing allows for the introduction of new PCs.))
(You all level up) by the way so now that they are defeated what do you all want to do there is the capital 2 days travel from here to the east or some of the surrounding villages spread out. there is some out posts some of Zerka's family own as well. As you are making your decisions Drax is on his way with his one other knight, two bishops and his rook, Pawns are just more being used to be placed at the villiage as he did lose his rook, knight and queen/prince.
So I apologize but this campaign is officially closed as of the moment hopefully I can re open and change it up sorry for any in-conveyance I know some seemed interested in it. O yeah Zerka comes and all the village and everyone around it has been eradicated.
