My celebration’s Cleric has simply picked up Augury. It is clearly a spell that garners some comprehensible confusion, however I do not assume this exact query’s been requested earlier than.
How ought to I, as DM, reply Augury when the great or unhealthy outcomes of a proposed plan of action hinge on a ability examine, which is random?
To supply a concrete instance, suppose the celebration have to recuperate some battle plans from inside an enemy encampment. At the hours of darkness, the Cleric casts Augury, proposing: “The rogue sneaks previous the sentries and takes it from the command tent”. It is a high-quality plan, one I anticipated them to attempt, and it’ll work completely if the Rogue rolls a minimum of an 11 on their stealth examine – a 50% probability. But when they roll underneath, the alarm might be raised, and the Rogue will seemingly be captured.
This is not “Nothing”, and it is not “Weal-and-Woe” – the result’s undoubtedly one of Good or Unhealthy, and it is not each. It additionally is not contingent on any subsequent results that may change the result. So how ought to I reply?
