Maneuvers

As an action, you can use the Dash action. If you move at least 4 meters straight toward a creature, you can make a melee weapon attack against it. Add the stamina die to the attack’s damage (add half if you miss by 4 or less).

Enhance

You can increase the damage for each additional stamina die expended.

As an action, you can make a weapon attack with a melee weapon with a natural weapon that deals slashing damage and then swipe through the target. Each creature within 1 meter of the target and within your weapon’s reach must succeed on a Reflex saving throw, taking slashing damage equal to the stamina die on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Enhance

You can increase the damage for each additional stamina die expended.

1 minute/stamina die

As an action, you can make a melee weapon attack with a natural weapon that deals piercing or slashing damage in an attempt to cause jagged wounds that bleed. Add the stamina die to the attack’s damage (add half if you miss by 4 or less). On a hit, the creature is bleeding for the duration.

At the start of each of its turns while bleeding, the creature must succeed on a Fortitude saving throw or it loses health equal to the stamina die. On a success, the effect end.

If the creature regains health while bleeding, the bleeding ends.

This has no effect on any creature that cannot bleed or lose a vital liquid substance.

Enhance

You can increase both damages for each additional stamina die expended.

1 minute/stamina die

As an action, you can make a melee weapon attack with a natural weapon that deals piercing or slashing damage in an attempt to tear the creature’s tendon. Add one stamina die to the attack’s damage (add half if you miss by 4 or less). On a hit, the creature must succeed on a Fortitude saving throw or it is slowed 1 for the duration and while affected it loses health equal to one of the stamina dice for every meter it travels.

A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

This has no effect on any creature that cannot bleed or lose a vital liquid substance.

Enhance

You can increase the damage for each additional stamina die expended and the slowed level by 1 for every two additional stamina die expended.
