Melee Ranges

#1 Postby herrozerro » Fri Aug 24, 2012 7:38 am

This might sound kind of stupid but how close is adjacent? is it within 1"? .5"? Bases touching?

Similarly how far away can a reach 1 weapon strike? withing 1"? less than 2"?

thanks!

As noted under Reach in the Gear section, "A reach of 1”, for example, allows a character to strike a target 1” distant. Weapons without a reach value can only strike targets at arm’s length (adjacent)."

So adjacent would be like a half an inch or less if not using a gridded map (where adjacent spaces are obvious), and Reach 1 would be a full inch requiring movement to cover the distance.
