By day (and night, far too often) I'm the Operations Manager at Digital Motorworks.

Most of the rest of the time I'm with my family or gaming, or thinking about gaming.

Currently playing a 14th level Shifter Paladin in a 4th edition DnD campaign. I'm also just starting to run a campaign of my own.

Hmmm...dominated says that they cannot take any actions voluntarily so the PC's would not be able to assist being lassoed. I'll edit my question to make that condition clear.

I like the reverse bullrush suggestion. I allowed them to use the move a grabbed person mechanic, but that is dependent on the movers speed and didn't seem quite right.

I think the idea of using a lasso was a great one, I wouldn't go so far as to have it auto-succeed though. There were time constraints as an encounter was going on and letting them press an "easy" button to end it would be unsatisfying (I think).

Would you position be that any slide/push due to the lasso should require a feat? (You could also create your own answer with this, I think its a valid point)

Correct, he just wanted to pull them away from danger. The PC's were dominated, but that isn't quite as debilitating in 4e as it was previously. I think they wouldn't have to fight off the lasso even while dominated.

@AceCalhoon - what you're saying is true, however I think with the small sample sizes that @yhw42's suggestion is valid. If you're only looking at one night, you want to get as much data as you can.

comment Can Elven Accuracy be Used to Reroll a Summoned Creature's Attack?
I respect your opinion but I find it hard to gloss over the phrase "The summoner makes an attack" To me, that means that the summoner makes the attack, the summoned critter is just the conduit.
