Default Re: Diengaging by Forcing Retreat

One way to phrase this is, you start the turn engaged by two enemies, and then as a result of forcing retreat, you'll be engaged with just one. The question is whether you get to choose or not.

RAW being engaged with another figure does not prohibit advancing.

But I agree this feels like taking a free action and probably wouldn't allow it myself.

The reason I say "probably" is that we enjoy fun tactical options, and like to encourage things other than hack-n-slash. So things that might be persuasive at our table: (1) is the engaging figure attending elsewhere (eg attacking yet a different figure); (2) for the attacker, the one forcing retreat, are they being engaged from their rear or front hex? That is, not inclined to allow a free disengage from someone in your rear hex. None of which are RAW.
