Playing a play-by-post 3.5 homebrew campaign. The gist: my Warblade (with Uncanny Dodge) wants to climb on top of the barrels and see what's in the main chamber. He doesn't know how many or how they are armed, but he knows there are a ton of goblins waiting in the chamber. I want to know if I can claim the dodge bonus for total defense in this situation. We aren't in official combat rounds.
Here is what I posted:
Standard: Total Defense (AC 22)
Move: Climb barrels, move towards main chamber (Climb +10)
Here is the DM's response:
Vesuvio climbs on top of the barrel and pushes the one in front out of the way. It crashes to the ground in front of him, loudly and immediately, a hail of arrows and bolts shoot all around him, sticking into the barrels and Vesuvio as well! One shot takes him right in the chest knocking the wind out of him. As the pain of all the strikes swarms through his body, Vesuvio looks up and can make out a horde of goblins standing all around nocking their bows and reloading their crossbows. Others were still pushing more barrels across the floor, but stopped when the arrows flew, and have now drawn their swords and are taking cover behind the barrels. A few larger goblins stand at the back, closer to the fire, and they are holding tight to ropes attached to wargs who are growling and snarling, pulling on their leashes in an effort to run at Vesuvio. The goblins have come to fight!
He said all of the goblins had readied actions to shoot the first thing that came up. After which, he proceeded roll about 20 ranged attacks against my character. He gave me the regular DEX bonus, but not the +6 from Total Defense (I have 8 ranks in Tumble).
Should I have gotten the AC bonus from Total Defense against all of the attack rolls? (Reminder, I have Uncanny Dodge, if applicable)
