Smite allows you to do additional damage whenever yout hit. In this setting I think the easiest thing is to let me know in your post that you intend to smite if you hit. Then if you hit - smite! If you don't hit - no smite and no spell slot used.
You can be more precise if you want about the game mechanics - "I use my movement to go 30' and my action to haul Dok along as i go." if you know the exact mechanics that makes it so that I don't misinterpret things. If you know what is a bonus action and such, for example, it makes my life easier. But if you don't know the details or don't want to you don't need to do that. Just be aware it leaves the interpretation up to me. But what you posted was fine. No problems at all.
Actually, the open space between the cave mouth and the brush is about 20' You are 30' from the cave so you are in the trees/brush - but just barely. 30' will easily get you outside of decent bowshot for anyone in the cave and well into the trees. But with no web and no resistance closer to the cave anyone inside can easily follow you out. If they do so, they can stay within bow range. Also important - go back and look at the posting - keep in mind how far it is to get out of the gulley and to the river.
I tried to get a bunch of friends I play Magic the Gathering with to try out a play-by-post game since I didn't think we had time for a table top version. Sadly, it didn't end up working out. You guys are already further in the campaign than they were, so there isn't much you could learn there.
FYI _ I will be posting this weekend with or without further posts. I don't want this to drag.
So, we can move 30ft per round. If I'm reading Nomad's latest DM post right, it's only 20ft to that doorway-like opening in the side of the cliff, so we should be able to make it this turn, provided the bugbears don't kill us first lol.
@Tann: Want to try and get to that opening this turn?
