    I'm having a lot of trouble keeping my mage alive.
    Last attempt against the skeletons of Emridy Fields was disappointing.
    Buffed with Mage Armor and Shield and rocking some sparkly mirror images, the skeletons needed very good rolls to hit.
    Of course, they rolled a bunch of 20s in the first couple of rounds.

    The thing that puzzled me, though, was that mirror image offered no protection at all.
    Was it just very bad luck that every hit chanced to bypass the images (something like a 1 in 5 each time) or is there an issue with the mirror image spell?

    I had a look in the rolls dialog, but there was no mention of a roll to check which image would be hit.

    If its relevant, I also had protection from arrows running, because those crossbow skeletons also do very well at scoring 20s.
    I'm running temple+ and co8 mod from 9.16.2013, which I believe is the latest

    Edit: its version 8.1.0 new content edition

    @MrPhil
    Did you have DM Mode on with maximized rolls?

    I don't think so. Some of the skeletons missed and I certainly wasn't hitting them

    Random numbers mean sometimes long strings of very low or high rolls occur.
