Chase Rules


GM Discussion

I have a couple of quick questions regarding chases, it says a PC can attempt a full round action and move 3 squares along the chase,
ie visual representation

PC
square1 square2 square3 square4

question 1 does the square the pc is on count towards the 3 squares ie if PC is on square1 and attempts to move three squares as a full round does he end up on square 3 or 4?

and question 2 the PC has to pass both checks on square 1 to make the 3 square move does he have to pass the checks on Square 2 (and 3 if they end up on 4) as well?

i understand the rest it just never says what happens when they succeed at teh attempt in the gamemastery guide

It depends. As far as I can tell, not every scenario implements the chase rules exactly according to the way they're set out in the GameMastery Guide.

Is this thread on the correct board? I would think this should be over on the general Rules board - not on the PFS GM board. Unless it's for how to run the Chase in a PFS specific scenario?

Sorry would of been better on the general rules, i was asking in relation to specific scenario 3-18 the Gods Market Gamble but am asking about the rule in the gamemastery guide about moving 3 squares

NP. I post threads in the wrong board all the time. It's just you might want to repeat the question over on the general Rules board, you are more likely to get a clear answer (among the 5 or 6 different ones that are not so clear) - just give them a day or two to chew on the question and they'll usually hash out the way it works. Or conclude that it's a FAQ issue.

In PFS (when I run it), from what I recall about #3-18 the Gods Market- the Chase is optional, so I normally just drop it and make it more of a cinematic scene that the players RP thru.

If I recall correctly, several scenarios experimented with chase rules before they got a official ruleset in the Game Mastery Guide. So its possible the rules in Gods Market are different then in de GMG. Its not a problem. I would stick with the version that you feel more comfortable with.

and then after that many scenarios modified them for that scenario.

Perhaps because the GMG chase mechanics weren't really popular. Part of that may be because they look like they were made in theory and published without a lot of testing. But also because if you apply them really rigidly they're both frustrating if you haven't got the exact skill required, and really immersion-breaking.

Modern chases have been much more flexible and also better about not leaving PCs behind against a barrier they're never going to be able to cross.
