Hi please can I ask some questions about combat to someone who has a better understanding of the rules and possibilities.
1- if you use a action point to get up /stand up while engaged in melee combat do you provoke a attack of opportunity ?
2-if you are engaged in melee against a prone opponent who is not stunned or broken do you get a bonus modifier to your attack roll .
I assume there would be some bonus as the attack would be easier and you would use one from table 4-3 but what would apply?
3-Are there no modifiers to attacks for line of sight?
In the example given in the rules for cover the attacker shots at someone who is round the corner of the wall without any additional penalties to his shot.
So do we have to assume that while using the take cover action you are splitting your time between protecting yourself and glancing arround / over the cover to see what is happening.
If not and you where fully hidden would there be a penalty modifier to the shot while still receiving the full bonus of the cover to your armour.
4-once you have used the " take cover" action do you need to spend a AP to maintain it ?
Obviously this is assuming you are still behind the same cover.
5-If cover was not available would you be able to spend a action point and do the opposite of get up and hit the deck to get some small amount of protection against ranged fire.
If so how would this work and what modifiers would apply?
6-in the sample of the combat section it states you can do various actions to increase your initiative.
Apart from surprise this seems to be by additional successes in combat.
However in attacking it says you gain +2 to your next attack only but while defending it seems to add +2 to your initiative for the rest of the combat is this correct or am I missing something.
7-once reduced to 0 hp you no longer take hp damage from attacks so does this mean that all attacks that hit you are then automatic criticals ?.
Do you roll an amount of critical rolls equal to the damage received or just one roll ?.
I ask because otherwise it would make no difference between a small hit with a damage rating of 1 or a considerably more powerful hit with a base damage of 4'
Hope someone can help with this
