As a DM, I want to know if there are any loopholes to allow more than one creature to fit inside Otiluke’s Resilient Sphere, Rules as Written.
Here is the scenario:
A party of four Medium creatures are walking through the old sewers of a city. Suddenly, the sound of gallons of rushing water echos down the tunnel, the party has only moments to react before the chamber floods with water. Thinking quickly, the party groups together and the wizard casts Resilient Sphere on them to protect them from the water.
Rules as Written, this wouldn’t work. The spell states that:
“The sphere is weightless and just large enough to contain the creature or object inside”.
This quote, and the continued use of singular rather than plural language, heavily implies that it is only intended to affect one creature at a time.
However, I want to know if there are any ways within the rules that would allow for more than one creature to be protected by Resilient Sphere.
