What scale is "feet" in game?

Post by darkf » October 1st, 2016, 11:56 pm

When an encounter tells me a monster is "13' away", how does this relate to tiles? Does it at all?

It doesn't seem to quite match up, a monster one down diagonally might be at 13', and one directly down from you in a cardinal direction might be 10' or less away. Is it random? Can NPCs move up a few feet if they're already one tile away?

10' is one orthogonal tile away - if someone is four tiles due east, he's 40' away. The 13s and 26s you'll see are approximations for diagonal distances.

And 2' is when you're occupying the same tile.
