#DnD How would you rule it?
PC puts NPC into death saves with Sword of Wounding. At the start of NPC turn, 2 things happen:
– NPC rolls death saves.
– NPC takes wound damage.
Normally fine. Roll death save, take death save from wound.
NPC rolls 20, heals 1 HP.

I'd go with the Xanathar's guildeline that the person whose turn it is decides the order to resolve similarly timed effects. In this case, you decide since it's an NPC's turn.

Curious about how to time simultaneous effects in D&D? Take a look at the "Simultaneous Effects" section in Xanathar's Guide to Everything (p. 77). Here's the rule in brief: the person whose turn it is—player or DM—decides the order of the simultaneous effects. #DnD https://t.co/EtDLdYKaEA
