comment How do I resolve RAW and 'common sense', with the phrase 'When you roll for initiative', when combined with initiative variants?
Right away. Does everyone keep their initiative order, or is it a reroll? I'm thinking the characters have a couple of seconds to a minute to catch their breath. Not an interrupted 'rest', but one that they didn't even have time to initiate.

I'm not sure I agree that RAW goes out the window with DMG variants. DMG Variants are presented as drop-in modules (to use the term during the playtest to get a different table experience), unlike UA articles and personal house rules.

I agree that "when combat starts" makes sense. The fact is, it doesn't say that. Two encounters, back to back (with no time for a short rest), would it be one fight or to for these purposes. The intent isn't clear, aside from 'They get some back without taking a rest'
