Maneuvers

As an action while flying, you can use the Dash action. If you move at least 4 meters in a straight line angled downwards toward a creature, you can make an Attack action with a melee weapon attack against it. Add the stamina die to the attack’s damage (add half if you miss by 4 or less). On a hit, you don’t provoke opportunity attacks when you fly out of the creature’s reach.

Enhance

You can increase the damage 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

As an action, you can use the Dash action twice. You also have advantage on Athletics checks to jump.

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.

As an action, you can use the Dash action. If you use a Brawn check to Overrun a creature during this movement and your check passes the creature’s passive Brawn and Acrobatics, it takes bludgeoning damage equal to the stamina die and is knocked prone. If you fail to Overrun by 4 or less, the creature takes half as much bludgeoning damage, but isn’t knocked prone.

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 Trip.

Enhance
