The channel divinity option Champion Challenge (Oath of the Crown from *Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide*, p. 133) states that on a failed save, a creature can’t willingly move more than 30 feet away from you. How does this work with large creatures?

PHB states about ranges:

To determine the range on a grid between two things-whether creatures or objects-start counting squares from a square adjacent to one of them and stop counting in the space of the other one. Count by the shortest route.

A large creatures occupies a 2×2 area; where in this 2×2 area does the square determined by the range have to be? Can it be the nearest square, and therefore large creatures could actually move 1 square further with champion's challenge, or does it have to be the furthest?

## Best Answer

## Size doesn't matter.

You quote the answer in the question itself.

This means regardless of how large a monster is, 30 feet is 5 squares between you and the creature. You can have a monster that's so large it takes up 10x10 squares, but it will only be 30 feet from you when there's 5 empty squares between you and and it.

Here's a diagram to show how the distance should be measured. 5 feet from you is the square next to you, then on the 6th square the monster is 30 feet away. 5 empty squares between the two of you.
