Elevation

Postby mathman83 » Fri Jul 13, 2018 12:15 pm

I have a character on the rim of elevation level 2 making a range attack targeting another character who is also on the rim of elevation level 2. Between them is just all level 1 terrain with a Great Size character on level 1. Would line of fire be blocked?

I have a similar scenario above, but my characters are on an Indoor map and instead of a Great Size character, I have a square of blocking terrain on level 1. Would line of fire be blocked?

No. When drawing a line of fire from one elevation to another (whether different or the same), any characters (regardless of size) or terrain on an elevation lower than the lowest elevation that has a line of fire being drawn to/from it will not affect the line of fire.

In the provided example, since the lowest elevation being used for line of fire is elevation 2, any characters or terrain on elevation 1 will not affect the line of fire.

No, for the same reason as provided above.

My friendly character on A3 has ;Improved-T; ;Elevated; is on elevation 2 and is targeting the opposing character on E3 that is on elevation 1. There is another character on D3 on elevation 1. All characters are standard size. Would line of fire from A3 to E3 be blocked?

What if the other character is on C3 on elevation 2? Would the line of fire be blocked?

My character on A13 has ;Improved-T; ;Elevated; and is drawing LoF to another character on E17. They are on elevation level 1 and the blocking and other elevation is level 2. Would the LoF be blocked by the blocking terrain on elevation 2?
