Suppose we meet a patrol of three hostile goblins. The DM already called for initiatives. On the first round of combat, my turn comes first, and I decide to bribe the goblins to leave us alone.
The iniative looks like this:
Me - Ally1 - Ally2 - Other goblins - Goblin Chief
When does the goblin respond? Is it immediately after I offer the bribe (after rolling skill check)? Or when his turn comes up?
This is important since my allies are murder hobos, and as a pacifist character I want to resolve the encounter without spilling blood. If my allies have chance to act, they might be able to kill one goblin (or more, with spells) or the chief.
