. . Hi everyone.
I was wondering, in order to add some verticality to the battles, how do you rule ladders ?
Basically I treat them as stairs or inclined walkways, difficult terrain but no climbing agility skillcheck (and consequently I add loads of them in my terrains).
Is that an heresy, how was verticality integration originally planed in the game ?
Ladders would count as Climbable Terrain, as per the rules on page 38 of the Rules of Play document.
Ok thanks, that is what I thought, I read the rules carefully
I personnaly find the climbing rule very punishing, but fair, and that is why I exclude ladders from it.
This is a TTRPG game master habit, I guess that anyone could use a ladder, which would slow them down, but not climb a wall/tree/fence.
Anyways everyone can adapt things, the beauty of this game is that it is very narrative and just needs for the players to agree (I usually play Mordheim, which given the potential consequences of each and every game on your warband can cause endless arguments ^^)
