comment Stealthing and hiding
@DCShannon correct. You get the following in a round of combat. 1 Action, 1 Bonus Action, 1 Reaction, 1 Interaction. You can't freely exchange Bonus Actions with Actions. What allows the Rogue the choice is the fact Hide is a actions for all characters but the Rogue has a class feature that allows him take a Hide Action as a bonus action.

comment Can I get creatures stuck in the ground with Mirage Arcane + Illusory Reality?
@SevenSidedDie I going to have to disagree otherwise the authors would have written the spell similar to Hallucinatory Terrain with a larger AOE. Consider that other illusion spell are able to make "real" effects like the 5th level spell Creation. Could it be clearer sure but the wording indicates that Mirage Arcane isn't just a Hallucinatory Terrain with a larger area of effect. But a temporary alteration of terrain within the limits of the spell.

Also Hallucinatory Terrain, a 4th level spell, makes an explicit point about how the tactile characteristic of the terrain remains unchanged. While Mirage Arcane explicitly adds in the tactile element.

comment Can I get creatures stuck in the ground with Mirage Arcane + Illusory Reality?
"but only because it feels real and interacts with you magically-intelligently. A precipice can appear to be a gentle slope — but you will still fall vertically if you try to walk down it." That is not clear from the spell's description because of the initial statement that the changes feel as if the terrain is real. Ruling that you fall over a precipice that been changed to a gradual slope is contradiction because falling doesn't not feel like there is a gradual slope. Keep in mind it is after all a 7th level spell.

comment Can you take the same feat multiple times?
@DrewS, Considering how the action system work in combat, I find it hard to think taking Magic Initiate:Cleric, Druid, etc multiple times is unbalancing considering there is multi-classing and you are foregoing an ability increase. It smells like a space saving move to me.

@GamerJosh well that further ammo to consider each class section of Magic Initiate as a separate feat in of itself.
