How much room does an Aarakocra need to fly/take-off?
I've tried to list the factors I could think of below:
- Inability to hover if speed reaches zero
- Wingspan of 20ft
- Medium sized creature.
Do you mean how much room above them? Around them? Are you asking how fast they can gain altitude?
Less about how fast they can fly up, and more about how much room they would need to spread their wings and take off. My thought process so far is that you would need to flap your wings and go in a direction. I'm just not sure if there are any rules/advice for how much space you would need around an Aarakocra in order to do so. Is it a 20ft cube, 50ft sphere etc.
Reasons for asking:
Sometimes it seems useful to post reasons for asking, mine is that I'm interested in how much use flight has for an Aarakocra in a inside setting. Both from a DM game build perspective what will and will not have greater effects on my Aarakocra players and from a player perspective so I have a better understanding of what I would naturally know as a winged creature.
