The Crimson Falling
Topple Cover is a (proposed) new Combat Action. It is a half action that lets you change the orientation of cover, if possible. In the case of light pieces of cover (eg. wood tables) it’s a simple half-action with no checks, etc. In the case of heavy pieces of cover (eg. bookshelf full of books) there’s a strength test involved. The difficulty of this test is determined by the weight of the object vs. the number of people pushing it over. A failed test means the object reorients as desired, but the action counts as a full action instead. A test failed by 3 or more degrees means the object doesn’t move at all, and you must take a toughness test, or be winded for one round (1 round fatigue). Upon toppling cover over, you are assumed to be behind it, and still have a half-action remaining to use as you wish.
