0-Athletics = 5% fall
2 or more Athletics = 3% Fall
4 or more At = 2% Fall
5 or more At = 1% Fall (we cannt add less)
Maybe this % is very low...
Don't worry, they are definitely big enough to prevent the player from relying on backpedaling:
Even though the percentages look small they will still make it very risky to walk backwards for long...after 25 steps even a 5 at guy has fallen 22% of the time and an atheletics 0 guy will have fallen with about 72% chance.
Even if you take just few steps back per battle, sooner or later you will fall even with 5 athletics.
Agreed with the above, this would make it happen in most fights if you are backing up a lot but would make it a very rare event for the occasional back step.
As an aside, I will say again however that this is yet another element that makes being a mounted lancer more attractive - you can't fall off the horse.
Also, for another anecdote I was at our local fight practice last night and watched people backing up/circling constantly while fighting all night long. Exactly one person fell over while doing so and it was because of a shield-push while he was doing it, not tripping.
