How Fast Do You Fall In D&D 5e?

When it comes to learning the rules, there is arguably no version of Dungeons and Dragons (sometimes abbreviated to D&D) that is simpler than the fifth edition (also known as D&D 5e by many people).

And now something is with you, something is about to attack! Your DM might describe an arrow flying through the air towards you, or perhaps a horde of goblins coming out of the shadows to ambush you.
