Does being Prone affect your movement?

Post by Math Mathonwy » Fri Jan 05, 2018 4:30 am

I can't find anything referencing that it does but it seems intuitive that it would. Can you move at all while Prone? Can you change your facing while Prone?

(I may have just overlooked it - trying to get to grips with the rules at the moment and I'm reading them while the wee ones are running amok around me so I may miss things)

Ah - you know I'd not really covered this at all. I hadn't really thought that you'd want to get about the table prone but I guess it's an option :D
I'd probably allow Prone Characters to crawl about at half speed. So a single Action for a 4 Speed Character would allow 2" of movement. The rule for dice rolls suggests fractions round down but in the case of movement you can take Fractional moves so a 3 Speed Character could crawl 1 1/2" as a single action.
I'll update the FAQ and probably the Electronic rules to reflect this.
Good pick-up!
