Threatening an opponent Checklist

1. Able to act. (Helpless, flat-footed etc. do not threaten. Feats can modify this, notably Combat Reflexes.)

2. Enemy is within reach. Characters and monsters without reach threaten no squares. (Standard reach for a medium character is 5’. Weapons, size and feats can modify this.)

3. Holding a melee weapon. (Feats can modify this.)


You still threaten while prone.

While grappling, you only threaten the opponents in the grapple.
