They really should wake up on their own once the attack starts.  So basically you get surprised.  The characters aren't sleeping due to a sleep spell.  Hearing all that commotion and fighting should rouse any adventurer.

I like being put at a disadvantage for sleeping and maybe a quick reminder by the tutorial might expose the "wakeup mechanic" more obvious.  However I did get a kick out of this suggestion:

It would be nice to have a couple of options.

-1 action cantrip to wake the rest of the party up.


Another use for Sparkle!!!  Wake up to three companions at once :).  Ok, perhaps Sparkle would become too useful, so maybe you use a lame cantrip, like Dazzle or Annoying Bee.

some pointed out there should be watch order, however, the game kinda of does, since the party is not ambushed with thugs cutting their throats.  the encounters start off with foes a move action or two away and as long as at least one character is awake [surprised or not] then they were 'on watch'.  so while it would be nice to have more options to get the party up to full speed while attacked in the middle of the night the game seems to do a good job with a minimal approach.

Yes, I too would like the wake up action to be fine tuned.  The suggestion for shout to wake up all is genius.
