comment Is a spell with an attack roll “an attack” for the purpose of Sneak Attack?
@GMNoob That spells can crit is part of the base ruleset, under the description of touch/ray attacks: "If a ray spell deals damage, you can score a critical hit just as if it were a weapon. A ray spell threatens a critical hit on a natural roll of 20 and deals double damage on a successful critical hit."

I think you should just use cover as suggested, but you could have a ranged attack hit the ally in cases where you have disadvantage and miss with both rolls.

That house rule would likely make it easier to hit the goblin if you aimed at your friend!

comment Is Swarm Attack an action?
@ThalesSarczuk "An attack takes an attack action, so Jack's answer is wrong and mine is spot-on." It's ambiguous what the literal RAW mean, which is why I discussed other considerations.

comment How do I handle PCs with 1 or 2 intelligence?
I think I fundamentally disagree with you both about what intelligence is, and what level of intelligence an animal posesses. Would you apply these same rules about Int checks when the party fights off a wild bear that has attacked them?

Your amended output is still not doing what the OP discusses. (And cannot easily be amended to do so.) (a) Take the highest two of 3d20 (b) count how many of those two are greater than the target.

btw, I typed up an answer that actually analyzes mathematically what's going on, but it seemed a bit too lengthy/unclear. I can post it as a separate answer if desired.

comment Considering Complex Dice Roll Probabilities
I'm confused as to why there are close votes for "unclear". This question is actually pretty clear and specific. It sets out a dice mechanic, and asks what the probability curves associated with it are.

@WesleyObenshain While anydice is capable of this analysis, the particular suggestions in this post won't actually work. (Or, at least, I couldn't see how to do so!) OP wants something a bit more complicated.
