This product fills the void left by Hot Pursuit: The Definitive D20 Guide to Chases.


LIKED: Elevates the foot chase to the level of vehicular chases, finally.

DISLIKED: This material should have been included in Hot Pursuit: The Definitive D20 Guide to Chases.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

Hot Pursuit: ON FOOT

Finally used this product, and must say it is lovely. It does exactly what it says, it makes chases fast and exciting. It is also not hard to convert to most systems.

My players actually used a chase where I hadn't planned one, a fight got nasty and they actually decided to flee, they really like the chase dynamics and used the chase to double back and get around the bad guys. Took some improvision but worked great. Just make sure you have a rough idea of the setting so you can use this system if you need to.

Also I use 3x5 cards for my players (have some newbies) to keep the most used stats for their rolls. This really came in handy to keep the pace of the chase.


LIKED: Great system for chases, best I've seen.

DISLIKED: You need to have the hot pursuit book to use this, and I changed a few things as I thought they could have done a better translation to foot chases. This one is good, but felt a little less cool than the vehicle chases.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Very Satisfied

Nice adjunct to the Hot Pursuit rules, shored up with some great examples.

LIKED: Introduces possibilities and handling for a comman action-movie type conflict in the game.

DISLIKED: I really think the subject of spellcasting and the effects of existing feats need more consideration.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Very Satisfied

This looks to be a very nice expansion on the rules given in Hot Pursuit. While I have not yet tried out the rules in Hot Pursuit: On Foot they look like they will handle the complications of foot chases quite handily, regardless of whether they are being used in D20, D20 Modern, or in my case OGL Steampunk. I was very pleased to see that it is much more printer friendly than was the first work in the series. (My biggest complaint about Hot Pursuit was the horrible ink guzzling color borders on every page. Otherwise it was and is a great book, one that I have used at least a dozen times in my game since I made the purchase.)

Rather than create new foot themed terms for manuevers On Foot uses the same terms that were used in Hot Pursuit, making it very easy to switch from one to the other rather than trying to remember which term goes with type of chase.

Like Hot Pursuit the writing is breezy, but while it does not take itself seriously it does a very good job of making the rules clear. In particular On Foot builds on the combat rules, in particular as pertains to melee combat, a much more likely event during a foot chase than between two vehicles (sword fights on flying carpets not withstanding).

Over all I am very happy with this purchase.

LIKED: Fast and easy chase rules for any D20 type game, and compatibility with the first book means not having to switch gears after they bail out of their vehicles.

DISLIKED: Like the first book there are no feats specific to chases, a decision that I can understand if not agree with. However it also fails to take into account the effects of existing feats on the rules, and this is a bit of a problem.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Very Satisfied

This is a great addition to D20 games of all sorts - it can even be adapted to Spycraft's excellent chase system with some effort. The one downside is that you do need to have the main Hot Pursuit supplement in order to make sense of this one. A few extra pages wouldn't have hurt to put the information from that supplement in this one. A good layout and a clear example also helps.

LIKED: Great concept, good execution.

DISLIKED: Could have been more comprehensive.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Satisfied
