I'm just starting out DMing in D&D, using the Moldvay basic rules from 1981.
A player encounters a monster that is 100' away. The player wins initiative and wants to do the following on round 1:
- Move closer to the monster, to within 10 feet
- Arm himself with his crossbow while getting into his new location
- Fire at the monster.
My question is, is the player allowed to do all these things in a single round? If so, do I roll to see if the crossbow bolt strikes successfully and roll for damage, all before the monster gets a chance to react?
A round in this version of D&D is 10 seconds, so it seems plausible he could do all these things in one round…
Thanks for the help.
