flat footed size penalties

Post by Kreuzritter »

if the defense bonus when flat-footed is halved, does this mean a gigantic character with a bonus in the negatives at full size (say, -2 at size colossal) has a -4 def penalty when flat footed?

The character loses any dodge bonus while flat-footed. This is calculated before applying size modifiers.

So a defense +7 character loses +3 defense while flat-footed. If that character is also Colossal (-8 defense), then he's –1 defense, –5 flat-footed.
