Movement question in COC

Post by Danni1 » Sat Aug 11, 2018 4:19 pm

Hey all, I was wondering about his oddity-there's a movement rule in COC that states that cautions movement is done at 1d6 inches, but broken terrain can cause a DM modifier of -1 to -2. SO what is the procedure when I roll a one or a two and subtract the modifier so I'm now at a negative movement number? Just move the unit one inch? Or leave it in place until the next turn and thus the next die roll?
Thanks all!

We treat all zero or negative results of modified movement rolls as "no movement."

I agree with Munin, it's no movement. It those circumstances you often have to risk using normal movement and roll 2D6 to get anywhere.

I treat it exactly the same as with shock, if shock is high enough to negate the movement roll or become negative then the unit doesn’t move.

Agreed. A negative result is no movement.
