Maneuvers

As an action, choose up to three friendly creatures within 10 meters who can see or hear you. Each of those creatures can immediately use their reaction to move up to half their speed without provoking opportunity attacks.

Enhance

You can maneuver two additional creatures for each additional stamina die expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other.

As a reaction, which you use when you or a creature that you can see within 1 meter of you is hit by an attack that you can see, you can block the blow with your shield or weapon. Roll a d3 and add the result to your Defense or an adjacent ally’s Defense against the triggering attack. You can do so after the roll but before any effects of the roll occur.

1 minute/stamina die

As an action, make a weapon attack to force the creature on the defensive, buying your allies critical seconds.

On a hit, add the stamina die to the attack’s damage and the creature must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or it can’t take reactions for the duration.

On a critical hit, add twice as much damage.

On a miss by 4 or less, add half as much damage.

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

Enhance

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

As an action, make a weapon attack and simultaneously bash a creature within 1 meter with your shield. The creature must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes bludgeoning damage equal to the stamina die and can’t take reactions until the end of its next turn. If the creature is your size or smaller, you can push the target up to 1 meter away from you or push it to the side.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

Enhance
You can augment this maneuver with the following options, expending stamina dice for each option.
  • You can increase the damage, target a creature of a larger size, and push the creature an additional meter for each additional stamina die expended.

  • Stagger. You can expend 1 additional stamina die so the creature is staggered instead of not being able to take reactions.

  • Stun. You can expend 4 additional stamina die so the creature is stunned instead of not being able to take reactions.

As an action, you can use the Dash action. If you move at least 3 meters straight toward a creature, you can make a melee weapon attack against it.

On a hit, add the stamina die to the attack’s damage.

On a critical hit, add twice as much damage.

On a miss by 4 or less, add half as much damage.

Enhance

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