Hide and Sneak! A 5e Cheat Sheet for Light, Darkness, and Stealth!

D&D lantern sneak stealth vision light

Hello, all! The Helpful NPCs crew are here again to provide a helpful reference cheat for you. This time, it's all about stealth. How do you run those pesky Dexterity (Stealth) checks? Can the monster see me even though there's a torch on the wall across the room?

Light sources and visual acuity are key to a proper dungeon crawling experience, and since you're playing a game with "dungeons" in the name, presumably you're going to be including at least one of those in your games. (If not, you're missing out!) The rules in D&D 5e are a little scattered and confusing, so we decided to compile a helpful reference sheet that explains them on a single page.

If there are any errors or additions you'd like to see, please let us know in the comments!
