Most GMs will probably rule that the tiefling can't target its own body with its darkness According to rules, the typical tiefling's spell-like ability darkness works just like the 2nd-level Sor/Wiz spell darkness, and that spell has as its target object touched. As the typical tiefling isn't usually an object but a creature, it would take a liberal GM to ...

It means without an active perception check they don't know where you are, so yes you gain any ability that hiding would confer.

Using a Google search for "The Rules of Hidden Club," I found the document you're looking for as the first result. It's essentially an explanation of the rules for the Stealth skill (found in the Rules Compendium or on the Compendium website) with a guide to applying them wisely. The basics, heavily summarized, are: The First Rule Of Hidden Club: Stay ...

You can’t hide from a creature that can see you,... (PH. p177) ... is perfectly clear. The question you have to answer as DM is is the crowd dense enough that they can't see the hidden person. A human in a crowd of halflings is going to struggle but a human in a crowd of a few dozen people is probably going to break line of sight sufficiently that ...

A lighfoot hafling can hide when behind another medium or larger creature. That is the only character rule for that allows hiding behind another. So hiding in the crowd is not allowed RAW. Personally I would not house rule for this either as hiding in a real crowd is going to show up as people look at you acting weird. However, trying to act natural in a ...

I borrow from games like warmachine and WarHammer for making calls like this and borrow the line of sight rules and the couple them with the cover rules on pages 250-251 in the DMG. If who you are hiding from does ...

Please see What advantages does hiding have? Without repeating the answer there: If you are hidden then being seen does not make you unhidden! Hiding involves more than crouching under the desk - it involves camouflage, cover and misdirection. A skillful rogue can hide in the middle of a parade ground if no one sees him when he hides and can remain hidden ...

Actively hiding from a creature requires a few things: You can't be seen and you can't be heard. Fog certainly covers the sight part of that, as players can only see 5 feet into it. You can only hide when you cannot be seen. If a player can see the spider, it cannot hide. So your spider's stealth checks will be entirely auditory, meaning his check is to ...

Spiders are ambush predators, and would use the 5e hiding rules to do this To go over your example: A goblin hides in a bush, and a player must make a passive perception check to notice them, when they are within the vision of the player. Or they can make an active perception check to search for them. Sort of. Players don't make passive perception ...

If your enemy reasons that you took a 5-foot-step (and your Stealth check succeeds), I'd say he knows you must be in that square even though he can't see you. Thus, he could target the square and you'd have 50% concealment.
