Some aspect of the play area has specific rules or circumstances associated with it. From the Accelerant core rules:
"Areas with special restrictions or rules will be marked by the yellow or hazard orange signs with game information printed on it. This sign will have game information written upon it that will describe the circumstances that make the area special."
While in a marked Special Area, players may need to react or role play based on what is happening around them. A Special Area may result in:
- Slowed movement
- Prohibitions on the use of certain game skills
- Physical hazards that may inflict effects or damage on characters in the area
- Instructions on how a character must conduct themselves while in that area
