I didn't understand the targeting system question. Took it!
Targeting system works like this -you pick a fight in the goblin city, everyone that can see you will attack you without being near the fight. Breaking immersion in my opinion but that doesn’t matter. I want strictly to share the community opinion (mine can be biased)
Gotcha. In D&D you have to also assume a first round shout of "WE'RE UNDER ATTACK!" and initiative is now people responding to the fact that there is a situation. They have a bit too much knowledge on what is going on and how quickly they can ascertain the nature of the alarm. Any one not in LOS should be suprised, but still in the conflict. Its hard one to judge for that kind of stuff though. I get what youre saying!
What is the problem you are solving? Does your proposed change solve the problem? Is your change feasible? What else will be affected by your change? Will your change impact revenue? Does your change align with the goals and strategies of the organizations (Larian, WotC)?
