Hello, still waiting for new prime so i dont know if this is covered in the new book.

Butcher is knocked down via earthquake. striker happens to be 7 inches away from the butcher. would the butcher be able to forfeit his action get up move into range of striker and then pay focus for melee attacks?

thanks sorry if this is in a rule book i only have original prime

No. Making initial attacks is required in order to buy more attacks.

Since the Butcher would forfeit his action to get the movement you would not be able to pay for additional attacks.

But you could always spend a focus to shake the knockdown effect on the Butcher during the Control Phase and charge Stryker.....

pay a focus to shake of knockdown? is that for ebutcher or pbutcher?

Warcasters can spend focus to shake off stationary and knockdown, it's been in the field test rules since the beginning.

Warjacks can do it as well.

Any warcaster or warjack can spend a point of focus after allocating to stand up before their activation.
