I'm trying to understand how enlarging a creature works when said creature is surrounded.
According to the description of the enlarge/reduce spell:
If there isn't enough room for the target to double its size, the creature or object attains the maximum possible size in the space available.
Which would suggest a Medium creature does not become Large/larger/taller/heavier...
...unless they do and they are now squeezing in the space and/or overlapping with the other items and creatures (provided they were not already squeezing)?
The Enlarge effect goes on to state:
The target's weapons also grow to match its new size. While these weapons are enlarged, the target's attacks with them deal 1d4 extra damage.
Which would seem to mean one of a few possible outcomes:
- Creature size isn't changed, weapon size isn't either, no +1d4 extra damage, only bonus to Strength checks and saving throws
- Size is changed, creature is now squeezing and must make or find a spacious enough area where appropriate
- Undefined; GM decides
