I am DMing for a celebration that continually says stuff like “We’ll stroll slowly and thoroughly,” or “We’ll go searching as we stroll, to verify there’s nothing threatening or out of the extraordinary.”
Say there is a monster hiding close to the PCs (it makes a Stealth verify and rolls a complete of 14). All of the PCs have a passive Notion decrease than 14.
Given the above assertion by the PCs, ought to I now ask for an energetic Notion verify to see in the event that they spot the monster hiding? Ought to I at all times ask for an energetic Notion verify any further, since they’re at all times being cautious?
On one hand, they did say they had been being cautious and their environment. However alternatively, I really feel like that is already assumed, as a celebration of adventurers would not simply nonchalantly stroll right into a dungeon – due to this fact I really feel like that is precisely what passive Notion is for.
