So, how “uninterrupted” is “uninterrupted” when it comes to nightly rest?
If somebody wakes you, is that interrupted? What if there’s an encounter, but no combat? What if there’s a combat, but you’re not in it?
I can see an argument for attacking or being attacked as being an interruption.
Does casting a spell interrupt rest?
If you roll a random encounter during the evening, are the spell-casters hosed?
As a rule of thumb, I generally say that your rest is interrupted if you attack, are attacked, cast a spell, flee/run, or engage in more than 6 turns (1 hour) of sedentary activity.
So if you ignore a swirling melee occurring around your camp, you’re fine, even if it is very loud? Cool.
Nerdnumber1: That's why I said "rule of thumb" and not "official rule".
I’m just envisioning a slightly bored, slightly irritated, groggy mage popping her head out of a tent at the sound of combat, seeing that the fighter has it “taken care of”, then calmly retreating into the tent and falling asleep.
