I am DMing for a celebration that always says stuff like we’ll stroll slowly and punctiliously, or we’ll go searching as we stroll, to verify there’s nothing threatening or out of the unusual.
Say there is a monster hiding close to the PCs (stealth examine 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 lively Notion examine to see in the event that they spot the monster hiding? Ought to I all the time ask for an lively Notion examine any further, since they’re all the time being cautious? On one hand, they did say they have been being cautious and taking a look at their environment. However then again, I really feel like that is already assumed, as a celebration of adventurers would not simply nonchalantly stroll right into a dungeon – subsequently I really feel like that is precisely what passive Notion is for.
