Rolling to Aviod Attack of Opportunity[edit]

While the prone status condition implies that the character is immobile, it is not specifically stated that the character is incapable of movement, simply that they suffer a penalty to attack and defense. Should a player be allowed to roll away from a threatened square, as a 5-foot move, to avoid an Attack of Opportunity from standing up? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 02:22, 4 January 2009 (MST).

Certainly. There are rules on that somewhere. I think that you can 5-foot step as a move action. The movement section contains far more detail on what you can/can't do while prone. Definitions are simply definitions for various states.--Dmilewski 18:40, 4 January 2009 (MST)

AC against that Attack of Opportunity While Standing[edit]

If you get attacked while moving into a standing position, does the -4 to AC against melee attacks still apply until you've stood up completely, or does starting to stand remove the -4 penalty before the attack of opportunity applies? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 11:21, 4 September 2011 (MST) (talkcontribs) .
