Evade check

From Arkham Horror Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

An Evade check is a special type of Sneak check used to determine an Investigator's success or failure in evading a monster, and sometimes in other gameplay.

The value used for the Evade check is determined by adding the investigator's net Sneak skill value with any special Sneak or Evade adjustments they may have from Skills, Allies, or other cards, and finally adding or subtracting any special adjustment for this check. This total gives the number of dice used for the Evade check.

Normally passing the Evade check requires only one success.

Evade Checks against Monsters

In an Evade check against a monster during the Movement phase or Combat, the enemy's Awareness is added or subtracted from the value used, to give the total number of dice for the Evade check.

To succeed in the Evade check against a monster, an investigator must roll at least one success. Any roll which fails to make the necessary number of successes is a failure, and the investigator must take stamina damage from the monster's attack (barring any special abilities which enforce different rules).
