Inside a creature

    Once my players fed a Necklace of fireballs to a roper. I couldnt justify it surviving so i just ruled that creatures were ‘vulnerable’ to attacks from within themselves. It worked a treat – the roped exploded messily all over the cavern.

    If you could count the stomach as a dex 0, unarmored part of the body, it would be AC 5. As for damage too it, perhaps the creature could make a con check, DC 8 + damage dealt, to not ‘throw up’ the contents of its stomach. Otherwise i would say it was vulnerable to damage but immune to acid. Given the swallowed adventurer is restrained, blinded, prone and suffocating they can still attack at disadvantage. shouldnt be too hard to get a dagger and just start stabbing.

    Still though, if its big enough to swallow live prey its probably evolved a harder stomach lining.. at your discretion ofcourse, like a rock worm probably wouldnt have a soft stomach lining, so perhaps something to the tune of AC 16 would be more appropriate.

    Just my thoughts
