Being prone, or laying down, is a condition that grants a -50 penalty to both attack strength and defensive strength. There are a number of maneuvers that cause a prone condition, such as sweep and tackle, and many criticals lead to a prone position, especially criticals to the legs or back. Being prone reduces one's chance to outrightly evade, block, or parry an attack by 50%.
