Maneuvers

As an action, you can use Stealth without using an action. Additionally, before the end of your next turn, you can add the stamina die to an attack’s damage (add half if you miss by 4 or less) if you have advantage on the attack roll, or if the creature is within 1 meter of an enemy of the creature that isn’t incapacitated and you don’t have disadvantage on the attack roll.

Enhance

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

As an action, you can make a melee weapon attack and a Brawn check to grapple the creature.

Enhance

You can add the stamina die to the attack’s damage (add half if you miss by 4 or less) for each additional stamina die expended.

As an action, you can make a melee weapon attack against a creature after you move at least 4 meters straight toward it. Add the stamina die to the attack’s damage (add half if you miss by 4 or less). On a hit, if the creature is your size or smaller, it must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or you knock it prone.

Enhance

You can increase the damage and target a creature of a larger size for each additional stamina die expended.

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.

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.
