Crushing damage

Post by Bragallot » Wed Jan 07, 2015 6:30 pm

So in this situation (which I fudged):

The warrior picks himself up and slashes at the Jungle Stalker.

He deals a lot of damage (two crits!) and actually manages to kill it. The jungle stalker collapses, kicking him away, but he survives it.
How do you determine whether the creature is going to fall on the mini's head? And how do you determine the damage (I'm guessing it's related to size)?

Also, if the creation tries to crush mini's deliberately by falling on them (players sometimes ask this), (how) does it take damage?

You shake the table and see where it falls.

momentum or collision using the height of the fall as the distance for the momentum impact.

I like to roll a scatter die and then let it fall in that general direction. Anything that it lands on gets crushed unless it can bail in time.

Most of the time, it doesn't matter where something falls. About 10% of the time though it does, so you should see if everyone at the table/involved can agree on the most interesting awesome thing to land on. Failing that, roll a scatter die or WISG it.

I've run into this question several times whenever a fighter jet comes crashing to the ground. There are, so far, no rules for this set in stone.
