Re: Move and Attack - How about Attack and Move?

Actually, the examples in the last post, with Fair Fred moving, attacking, turning, stepping forward, and attacking again, for example, aren't anything I would bat an eye at if we weren't playing on a mat. :-/ If we were just all playing "in-head" I don't think I'd have any problem with that at all....

Re: Move and Attack - How about Attack and Move?

Good spotting, Rhuvein. That's similar to something I'd thought of... If I can move 1/2 my move and still attack in any order, then can't I move 1/3 of my half move, attack, and then move the other 2/3? No. If a chance for a successful attack requires 5 seconds of contiguous melee then you only hav...

Re: Move and Attack - How about Attack and Move?

I don't really consider them as necessarily separate and distinct actions (Nor does the rules apparently, because this movement is listed as part of the attack action). I don't like the idea of "a movement action" and "an attack action". Since viewing it that way doesn't really make sense to me. Th...

Re: Move and Attack - How about Attack and Move?

I know this sounds like I've got my mind made up, but I haven't. Actually, my plan is to throw it up to a vote to the group (there's four of us, so we could end up tied). But I like hearing both sides and throwing out more questions so that I can get more answers. The things I ask are the things my ...

Re: Move and Attack - How about Attack and Move?

Hmmm, how about move, attack and move? One half of your half movement ~7.5 ft, attack and then move again 7.5 feet. :P Good spotting, Rhuvein. That's similar to something I'd thought of... If I can move 1/2 my move and still attack in any order, then can't I move 1/3 of my half move, attack, and th...

Re: Move and Attack - How about Attack and Move?

The best answer is to ask yourself: Could someone attack someone for 5 seconds then move for 5 seconds? (a round being 10 seconds) If they could move for 5 seconds then attack for 5 seconds... And this is why I'm asking. Having come straight off a run of the D&D Cyclopedia, where you can't move and...

Move and Attack - How about Attack and Move?

My PHB (I don't know if this has been changed in other editions) states that an attacking character can move up to half their Movement rate and still attack. Although these terms aren't used, that's a Free Action and a Dice Action. The rulebook clearly states that they can move half their movement a...
