In one of our battles in DnD Next, I had some bugbears hiding in trees trying to attack the players.
The bugbear rolled a 21 on its attempt to hide. Four of the players rolled less than 21 on their wisdom, but one character rolled a 22.
The bugbear has a "bushwhack" attack, which does an extra 2d6 damage to characters from which it is hidden.
This question has three parts:
- Since the character who saw the bugbear hide declared to the group that the bugbear hid in the trees, does that mean that everyone now knows where the bugbear is?
- Does the bushwhack damage apply to any of the characters?
- Can the Bugbear know which PC not to attack, because it knows that he was spotted (the character shouted it out) vs. the other PCs from whom it is supposedly hidden?
In general, how does this work?
