The paladin's AC was irrelevant, as was the cube's. Slide onto the cub'e outline, it's a hit. Slide onto the player, it's a hit.


In the future you might want to have the damage to the player mitigated, it only make sense that the cube would have to be hit as well taking some of the damage. Now if the monster was using the player as a human shield that's one thing but it clearly encases the player so its got to take something.


The cube did take damage if the player was hit as well. At least it was supposed to.

On N and HC level, the engulfed character would not die, but would be reduced to one hit point. On NM s/he could die.


I don't know for certain the cube took damage when I did. but what I was proposing is the cube should "share" the damage, in effect allowing the player to have damage resistance. I know for absolute certainty that didn't happen. Just do 50/50 to make it easy, players deal 200 damage to me, it becomes 100 to me 100 to cube.
Sweet a combat room, we won't take damage!

For the sake of simplicity we just did equal damage to both player and cube.
