Post Bolas and Entangle
on: May 17, 2016, 06:23

The note under Bolas (p53) says:

*Bolas entangle the victim, who can then try to break free (PHYS check at -2, -3, or -4 for small, medium, and large bolas) or wriggle free (Grapple skill check at -1 per point by which the roll to hit was made).

However, what is the effect of being Entangled exactly? The only other reference I can find is under Hokun as an ability.

Does it mean:

    * Entangled target can't move until it escapes, but can still defend etc. Does it become prone?
    * Entangled target can't do anything except try to escape.
    * Something else?

What about larger creatures? They will be easier to hit, but less likely to be entangled I would suspect. Maybe they only work on creatures up to one size group different from your own?

I ask as I have a player with a PC who is a herder, and has taken Advantage Pet (2) to have a kuni-bird (which we thought would be interesting to use for herding hma or hmelu as well as spotting predators), and bolas to bring down the beasts.

The effect of being entangled by a bola is the same as the effect of being Grappled (p. 73).
