Maneuvers

As an action, you can make a melee weapon attack with a weapon that deals bludgeoning damage in an attempt to debilitate the creature. Add the 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 only deals half damage until the end of its next turn.

Enhance

You can increase the damage for each additional stamina die expended. This augment also causes the creature to be debilitated for 1 minute/stamina die. At the end of each of its turns, a debilitated creature can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Enhance

You can increase the damage, target a creature of a larger size, and push the creature an additional 1 meter for each additional stamina die expended.

As a reaction, which you use when a hostile creature within 5 meters is reduced to 0 health or a friendly creature within 5 meters is reduced to less than half its health, you can move up to half your speed and make an attack roll against a creature.

On a hit, the creature takes damage equal to the stamina die (or half if you miss by 4 or less), but no additional effects from hitting apply.
