Evade if moving after combat?

6 posts in this topic

Does the investigator need to evade if moving out of the monster's space after a combat step?  Please cite the Rules of Play.  

 

Thanks, Mack

There is nothing in the rules that indicate that movement is evade-free after an attack; an investigator must perform an evade test before any non-attack actions.

 

"An investigator must make an evade test against every monster in his space before moving or performing non-attack actions"

(page 14)

 

"Attacking a monster does not require making an evade test." (page 15)

 

When reading the rules, it's a good idea to focus on what they explicitly allow instead of looking for things that are not disallowed. You could easily ask "can I take three extra movement step after an evade test?" - there is nothing in the rules which explicitly prohibit this, but it's still not how you should play it :)

Equivalent to what you've cited, p. 9, "Attacking a monster is the only action that an investigator can perform while a monster is in his space (unless he evades the monster . . . ."

Also, if an investigator performs the evade check so that he can perform an action other than attacking, and then wishes to move, he may do so freely. He has already evaded the monster and does not need to do another evade check to move away.
