Does standing up from prone trigger the secondary damage from the Booming Blade cantrip?

Does spending movement to stand up from prone trigger the secondary damage effect of the booming blade spell from the Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide (p. 142)? The spell says:

If the target willingly moves before the duration expires, it immediately takes 1d8 thunder damage, and the spell ends.

Does standing up after being knocked prone use half your current or maximum speed [duplicate]

I’m DMing a campaign and one of my players is a monk with 40ft of movement. He got hit by a slow spell reducing his speed to 20ft and was knocked prone. To get up would he have to use his full 20ft as its half his max speed or only 10ft as that’s half his current speed?

How does an NPC standing in the line of sight affect the attackability of a target by a ranged single-target attack?

Assuming in a battle in Savage Worlds (Adventure Edition) there are three Characters A, B, C standing in line: A — B — C

Can A hit C with a ranged single-target attack? (E.g. Bolt, Bow, Pistol)

If yes, does it also depend on whether B is moving or standing still?

If that’s also a yes, does only a motionless B provide cover?

I always assumed A cannot hit C, but recently read up on the Innocent Bystander rule, which states “hits a random victim […] directly in the line of fire to the original target”. If the answer is really “no”, how can there be a victim in the line of fire?

Is a creature standing in an Antimagic Field subject to the effects of extreme weather produced by Control Weather?

Say, for example, that a person is standing in an Antimagic Field when a disgruntled Druid decides to create a 5 mile radius freezing hailstorm via Control Weather.

Would that person be subject to the effects of the hailstorm? More specifically:

  • What happens to the hailstones that enter the Antimagic Field?
  • What localized weather effects does the person experience? Is the weather within the Antimagic Field somehow the hypothetical weather conditions that would have existed if Control Weather hadn’t been cast?
  • Is the person subject to the effects of extreme cold like the rest of the people within the hailstorm?

Is the “half your speed” used in standing from prone your normal speed, or current speed?

At my last session, a scenario arose in which a character was attempting to cover ground as quickly as possible, but was knocked prone. On their next turn, they proceeded to stand up and Dash. This led to a moment of confusion while I attempted to figure out exactly how prone and Dash interact.

The player commented offhand that standing from prone halves your movement and Dash doubles it, so the two cancel and they had 30ft to move that turn. Reading the rules, however, I interpreted things differently.


When you take the Dash action, you gain extra movement for the current turn. The increase equals your speed, after applying any modifiers. With a speed of 30 feet, for example, you can move up to 60 feet on your turn if you dash.

Any increase or decrease to your speed changes this additional movement by the same amount. If your speed of 30 feet is reduced to 15 feet, for instance, you can move up to 30 feet this turn if you dash.

(PHB p192)

Being Prone

[…] You can drop prone without using any of your speed. Standing up takes more effort; doing so costs an amount of movement equal to half your speed. For example, if your speed is 30 feet, you must spend 15 feet of movement to stand up.

(PHB p190)

My interpretation is that your speed is constant – say, 30ft – and your movement is a separate quantity representing distance you can cover this turn. You start the turn with available movement equal to your speed, and then Dash adds another quantity to your movement, while standing up removes a quantity from your movement. Neither affect your speed.

That means that this player starts with 30ft of movement, gains an additional amount equal to their speed (30ft) from Dash, then spends an amount equal to half their speed (30/2 = 15ft) to stand, leaving them with 45ft of movement available for this turn.

In the end, they needed less than 30ft of movement to get into position to attack the bandit leader and the party all made it out alive, so it didn’t affect the outcome of our game, but I’d like to get this straightened out for the future.

Is my interpretation of the interaction between speed, movement, the prone condition and the Dash action correct?

Do the Unearthed Arcana Tunnel Fighter Fighting Style and the Arcane Archer Fighter’s Grasping Arrow features trigger when standing from prone?

The Light, Dark, Underdark! Unearthed Arcana includes the Tunnel Fighter Fighting Style which states:

[…] As a bonus action, you can enter a defensive stance that lasts until the start of your next turn. While in your defensive stance, you can make opportunity attacks without using your reaction, and you can use your reaction to make a melee attack against a creature that moves more than 5 feet while within your reach.

And the Arcane Archer Fighter’s Grasping Arrow Arcane Shot feature states:

[…] The creature hit by the arrow takes an extra 2d6 poison damage, its speed is reduced by 10 feet, and it takes 2d6 slashing damage the first time on each turn it moves 1 foot or more without teleporting […]

What happens if the creature in question is currently prone, and stands from prone? Does this activate the Tunnel Fighter’s opportunity attack? Does this activate the 2d6 poison damage from Grasping Arrow?

Note I am aware that the following Q/A already exists:

  • Does standing up from prone trigger the damage from Booming Blade?

But I was told in my answer to another question that I cannot generalize answers there to conclude that standing from prone does not count as moving. So I am asking these separately instead.

I wanted to ask the question “Does standing from prone count as moving?” but was told that “There is no reason for the question “Does X count as Y?” to have a consistent, universally applicable answer.” and so have asked this instead.

The last standing gunman in a circle

I dont know why, In most of the interviews, interviewers are asking this question commonly. The question is : There are n number of persons standing in a circle manner. The first person has a gun and he kills the very next person who is alive and handovers the gun to the next person. Who will remain? Here is my code for the above scenario. It works if anyone needs take it.

public static void void main(String ar[]) {      int numberOfGuys = 10000;     List<Integer> list = new ArrayList<>();     for ( int i = 1; i <= numberOfGuys; i++ ) {         list.add( i );     }     boolean isNeighbour = false;      System.out.println( list );     Iterator<Integer> i = list.iterator();     list = new ArrayList<>();     boolean isTrue = true;     while ( isTrue ) {         int k =;         if ( isNeighbour )             i.remove();         else {             list.add( k );         }         if ( !i.hasNext() ) {             System.out.println( list );             i = list.iterator();             if ( list.size() == 1 )                 isTrue = false;             list = new ArrayList<>();         }         isNeighbour = !isNeighbour;     } }
