Special Terrain

Postby xerkeinen » Wed Jul 26, 2017 11:20 pm

When used as a special terrain piece, the Invisible Plane's #1 trait says:
(1) Invisible Plane counts as hindering terrain for line of fire purposes and blocking terrain for movement and occupancy purposes.


Can a character with ;Improved-M; ;D-Blocking; move through the Invisible Plane?

If it can, would the squares of special terrain it moved through be destroyed?

Yes.

No. It is only blocking terrain for movement purposes. It is not blocking terrain for any other game effects and will not be destroyed.

SPECIAL TERRAIN TRAITS
(1) Tony Stark's Car counts as hindering terrain for line of fire purposes and blocking terrain for movement and occupancy purposes.


KNOCK BACK SEQUENCE
A character that is knocked back is knocked back in a direct path (called the knock back path) away from the character causing the knock back. To knock a character back, place it into the first square along the path, and then place it into the next square along the path, etc. Continue placing the character one square at a time in squares next to each other along the knock back path until one of six things happens (checked in this order):

3. Blocking terrain occupies the next square or is just before the next square. If just before, it is either a wall (orthogonal path) or an intersection (perfect diagonal path). (See p. 21 for Blocking Terrain and Walls.)


If a character is knocked back into special terrain, do you treat it as if being knocked back into blocking terrain?

Special Terrain Traits wrote:(2) Characters in adjacent squares modify their defense value by an additional +1 when targeted by range attacks if the line of fire drawn to them crosses a square of SHIELD Flying Car.


If the attacker has ;Improved-T; ;Hindering; , would the target still get the +1 from the above trait?

Yes. The +1 modifier to defense granted by the trait will apply regardless of whether or not the attacker's line of fire is hindered.

Dune Buggy counts as hindering terrain for line of fire purposes and blocking terrain for movement and occupancy purposes.

Given the following setup where ;F-Character; is a friendly character, ;O-Character; id an opposing character, and ;Vehicle; is special terrain that is blocking for movement and occupancy purposes:
;Blocking; ;O-Character;
;F-Character; ;Vehicle; ;Vehicle;
;Hindering; ;Vehicle; ;Vehicle;
Can Friendly close attack Opposing?

If the Friendly tried to move, would it need to break away?
