I did some searching, and I haven't quite found the answer I am looking for. I see a lot of questions regarding grabbed creatures standing when prone, but nothing yet on the grabbing creature (there's probably threads out there, so maybe I'm not wording my search correctly). I am hoping someone here can help, and many thanks up front for doing so.
I am a Brawler, and have an enemy grabbed. That enemy then attacks me such that it knocks me prone. As I understand the rules, me being prone forces him prone as well, since the grab doesn't end from me being knocked prone (please confirm as well?). If that's the case, and we are both prone, when I stand up, does the enemy stand up with me, or do I have to release him to stand?
Being knocked prone doesn't forced the grabbed creature prone (vice versa) and standing up doesn't let a grabbed creature that is also prone stand up as well. (vice versa)
ok, interesting. How would I be able to hold onto a grabbed creature if I go prone and it doesn't? Wouldn't I drag it down with me?
Nothing says that your grabbed target can;t be prone if you're not, or vice versa. Where did you get that idea?
You grapple your foe. Your foe body slams or trips you onto ground. You still hold onto his leg attempting a leg bar submission. Foe is standing but still immobilized from moving away...
You don't want to give combat advantge to him only so attempt to also prone your grappled target. Take the fight onto ground. You Move Grabbed Target action, str vs fort. Success your target is also prone. Ground and pound.Don't you watch UFC?
You'd need DM collaboration for this to happen.
Move a Grabbed Target doesn't knock prone by RAW, it only pull.
Knocking a grabbed target down is easy though - that's what World Serpent's Grasp is for. Just refluff it.
The brawler feat Pin Down demonstrates how the prone-ness is not linked between the two - the feat makes it so that the creature you're grabbing can't stand up until it escapes the grab. Good way to ruin its day, actually. You get CA, and it gets a -2 to attacks.
