Maneuvers

As an action, you can make a melee weapon attack that deals slashing damage in an attempt to cripple 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 is slowed 1 until the end of its next turn.

Enhance
You can augment this maneuver with the following options, expending stamina dice for each option.
  • You can increase the damage for each additional stamina die expended and the slowed level by 1 for every two additional stamina die expended.

  • You can expend 1 additional stamina die so the creature is slowed for 1 minute/stamina die. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

As a reaction, which you use when you are hit by a weapon attack that you can see, you can block the blow with a melee weapon you wield. Roll a d3 and add the result to your Defense against the triggering attack. You can do so after the roll but before any effects of the roll occur.

  • You can expend 4 additional stamina dice to roll 3d3.
