My friends and I were playing Munchkin last weekend and we had an interesting experience.
I happened to be lucky enough to have the "Kneepads of Alure" (and not much else). I was level 1. My friend who was winning was level 6.
On my turn, I opened a door and came across a high level monster that would not pursue anyone of level 4 or below. I wanted to make sure that my friend would be included in the fun so I used the Kneepads to bring my level 6 friend into the fight.
We were not going to win the fight and my friend (who himself was in the fight) promised to help the monster should we be able to win. He wanted to force me to have to run away (and him as well), but I argued that because the monster wouldn't pursue characters of level 4 or below I didn't have to roll to escape the "Bad Stuff".
What is the correct rule in this situation? Do we both have to roll to escape or just my friend who was level 6?
