[RPG] How often can a creature be damaged in one turn with Wall of Fire


Question 1: During a creature's movement, he moves into more than one fire space. Does he take the damage for each square?

Question 2: Using Forced movement (push/pull/slide) does the creature take the damage for each square entered?

Best Answer

Currently update to wall of fire notes that:

Creatures can take damage from the wall only once per turn.

In the past, this was ruled differently, see the edit history of this answer for previous interpretations.

At least now it's a lot simpler. Now it doesn't matter how large the creature is nor how many squares it moves, it takes damage once per turn. Still, if multiple PCs are playing ping-pong with a mob, they will indeed take damage every PC's turn that they enter the wall.
