View Full Version : What rules are disabled by knockdown/stationary effects?

Hi there

Sorry for this newbie question, but I was unsure what rules/affects are stopped by becoming stationary or being knocked down?

For example: Do I still benefit from shield wall/defensive line/reversal/set defense/polarity wall etc when I have become stationary or knocked down?

Those rules affected by knockdown say so in their description. See shield guard as an example. The rest are unaffected

Oh thanks - makes a lot of sense.

Etologi is correct....

But; There are some more subtle effects. As an example, both knocked down and stationary means that you can not engage or be engaged - you also do not have a melee range. This means that any rule that says something like "when/while engaging/engaged by..." or "when in the melee range of..." are no longer in effect. Examples include "Unyielding", "Terror" and more...

Ah, yes, will have to remember that, thanks bitmatic!

The general rules they've posted are correct. An exhaustive list is a little bit more difficult to do, but if you follow what they've said here, you'll be lead correctly.
