Hi Steve,


What happens if McDojo (str 10) successfully hits Manument (base str 30 plus the Enormous size template applied due to Growth) with Leg Sweep (3d6+target falls)?


As far as I can tell Manument falls (somehow).  Barring GM dramatic sense squashing it - is this correct?


In more general terms are 'target falls' martial maneouvers governed by the same rules as Throw or Trip or are they unresistable?


Thank you

Legsweep, like Martial Throw and many other Martial Maneuvers, uses the Throw Element. As mentioned on HSMA 100, the rules for Throw, 6E2 80+, apply to this Element. Per 6E2 81, there are restriction on how heavy a character or object a character can Throw, based on his STR. So, depending on McDojo's STR versus Manument's weight, McDojo may or may not be able to Throw him.
