Re: (TFT) Standing up... movement or action?

Personally, I like allowing standing as a solitary action during movement and allowing stand and ready as an option during attack. To me this makes common sense. If I'll allow any other action, such as taking another HTH, then it seems viable to allow a simple attempt to stand up. Maybe it should come with a roll during action (in fact I might ammend my own house rule to require a roll, maybe against adj ST!).

Hmm, I do not see the difference in just allowing a person to stand during movement. Unless you mean that if I knock you down on DX 14 then you get to stand on your action on DX 11. That's not right to me. The reason you get knocked down in this is game due to a massive, injury producing blow. This reaction to the injury is factored into the fact that you can not immediately jump right back up on your feet. (Recall that smaller injuries give you a -2DX as the penalty to the injury producing blow until you shake off the effects of the injury. Not enough to knock you down but a penalty non-the-less.)

But, not to allow the person to stand until the next action turn is just wrong in my opinion. Most times the way the person found themself on the ground in the first place is because they were slower. If they have to wait until their action, then not only will their attacker hit them first, again; they will also get a bonus to do it. Remember, it's always best to look at the rule as if you are the one being knocked down by a faster attacker. Daemon hits first, daemon does 3d damage for.. 14, you're knocked down. You must wait until next action to stand when he'll just hit you first again and knock you down again. Do you want to engage the daemon in HTH?

Absolutely agree with this! No where in the rules does it even mention you should allow this.
