Good thing they didn't have any weed on them. They'd really be in trouble.

Reminds me of that case in Iraq lately. Some terrorists were on the run from a team of US special forces, lead by General Armstrong. The terrorists hid out in the ruins of an ancient Babylonian temple, which would have enabled them to elude capture had they not decided to burn a pile of documents. The smoke coming from the temple gave them away.

You know what they say: The Searchin' General has declared that smoking ziggurats is hazardous to your stealth.

I'd have the authorities roll a spot check to notice the light from a campfire in the hills at night. DC 12, maybe 15, depending on the terrain and weather.

On a hill at night? That's actually not difficult. People meaning to avoid detection should generally avoid ridge lines in the first place because they can be silhouetted. Fires, even small ones can be readily detected and on a clear night the smoke would have been pretty easy to spot.

DC 5 tops. A person who is even vaguely trying to do it, should be able to pull it off.

Boy what is the DC thing? Back in my day there was no such thing as a spot check, all we had was THAC0 and we liked it like that.

Maybe they figured the nearby water would confuse the searchers thermal optics.

Or else they were just really stupid.

It will be okay. Take these D20 dice. Chuck them to the side if they suddenly charge you as you make your escape.

They must not be using the Phoenix Command Small Arms Combat System. (new window)

"Take your current role playing system. Place an M-1911 handgun up to your temple, and pull the trigger. After a couple weeks of recuperation, you can continue playing. Now take the Phoenix Command system, and do the same thing. You now have the choice to either roleplay a vegetable, or roll a new character."

A bonfire in the dead of night on a beach? Spotting a large light source in darkness should be about DC -50 before distance penalties.

A good patrolman should have a +10 check at the very least. (Assuming 3.0 rules where NPCs could have actual stats)
