Pursuing fleeing characters
In a situation where one one charcacter is fleeing and another is pursuing, strictly applying the basic combat rules doesn't seem to work as one would intuitivly expect. i.e. The pursuing character enters the enemy engagement zone, and must halt,but cannot carry out any further action. This gives the opponent a chance to disengage, move away and the sequence is repeated unless the opponent is cornered.
Have I understood the rules correctly? Does a statement a moving character must halt upon entering an enemy engagement zone always apply. Should the optional "Engage and Fight" rule always apply to avoid the sitution described the the first paragraph? If a character is fleeing at full pace would they still ahve an active engagement zone?
Does anyone have any other thoughts on this?
