Improved Targeting

Postby bgt » Sun Mar 10, 2019 5:58 pm

;Improved-T; : ;D-Blocking; - Once per range attack, this character can draw a line of fire through one piece of Blocking terrain. Immediately after the attack resolves, destroy that piece of Blocking terrain.

Shape Change - When this character would be targeted by an attack, you may roll a d6. ;Dice5; - ;Dice6; : This character can’t be targeted by the attacker this turn and the attacker may choose a different target instead.


Character A uses ;Improved-T;: ;D-Blocking; to target Character B with a ranged attack, drawing line through a single square of blocking terrain. Character B can use Shape Change, and succeeds the roll, becoming an illegal target.
1. If there are no other targets, will the square of blocking terrain be destroyed?
2. If another character can be targeted, can Character A use ;Improved-T;: ;D-Blocking; to draw line through a different square of blocking? Would the original square still be destroyed?

Improved ;Improved-T; ;A-Infinity; : This character can make range attacks while adjacent to opposing characters. (May target adjacent or non-adjacent opposing characters.)


Situation:

;F-Character; ;O-Character;
;O-Character; ;O-Character;

Q: Can the friendly character, using this improved targeting, make a range attack to the opposing character in the diagonal square?

Assuming no other effects are in play, the answer is no. Line of fire would be blocked to the target.

"WINDOWS Windows are a subset of walls that can have a line of fire drawn through them, but can’t be moved through. Windows are indicated by dashed blue squares with a black outline. Windows are considered walls (and therefore blocking terrain) for all effects, including destroying it. • Adjacency: Same as for walls. • Movement: Same as for walls. • Line of Fire: Windows do not impede line of fire in any way."


;D-Blocking; "Once per range attack, this character can draw a line of fire through one piece of Blocking terrain. Immediately after the attack resolves, destroy that piece of Blocking terrain"


Does a character with ;Improved-T; ;D-Blocking; destroy a window and can they draw a Line of Fire through multiple Windows?

In order to be destroyed, the terrain itself must normally block line of fire. Since Windows do not block line of fire, a characters using ;Improved-T; ;D-Blocking; will not destroy them when drawing a line of fire through them and can draw a line of fire through multiple windows.
