[SR] Dragon Hatchling Tail Sweep

#1 Postby Ndreare » Thu Apr 27, 2017 9:52 am

Hello again Clint,

Is the tail sweep of the hatchling considered an area of effect attack, so that the dragon rolls against a 4 and the defenders get an Agility roll to avoid, or it is considered a regular attack against the targets parry and they do not get a roll to avoid?


PS: As usual I have been assuming it is a regular fighting roll against the targets Parry.

Per the description, "This is a Fighting attack which ignores size penalties." So it's a normal Fighting attack which just ignores any size penalties, everything else applies normally. Make one Fighting roll and use it for all targets in the area, then roll damage for any hit individually.
