Magic Resistance. The oaken bolter has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Maneuvers. The oaken bolter uses maneuvers (maneuver save DC 15). It has 14 stamina dice which are d8s, a dice limit of 2, regains all expended stamina dice when it finishes a long rest, and regains half its total stamina dice when it finishes a short rest. It knows the following maneuvers:

At will: grapple (Lancing Bolt only)

1 stamina die: distant shot, impaling shot, knockback, precision, ricochet, spring attack

2 stamina dice: entangling shot, snap shot

Actions (2)

Lancing Bolt. Melee or Ranged Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 1 m. or range 5/20 m. Hit: 15 (2d10 + 4) piercing damage. If the crocodile uses the grapple maneuver, a creature’s speed isn’t reduced, but it can move only in directions that bring it closer to the oaken bolter. A creature takes 5 (1d10) slashing damage if it escapes from the grapple or if it tries and fails. Once on its turn, the oaken bolter can pull a creature grappled by it 4 meters closer. The oaken bolter can grapple only one creature at a time.

Explosive Bolt (Recharge 5–6). The oaken bolter launches an explosive charge at a point within 20 meters. Each creature within 4 meters of that point must make a DC 15 Reflex saving throw. On a failed save, a creature takes 35 (10d6) fire damage and is burning 2. On a successful save, a creature takes half as much damage and isn’t burning.

Maneuvers

As an action, you can make a ranged weapon attack at double your weapon’s range and long range. 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.

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 ranged weapon attack with a weapon that deals piercing damage in an attempt to pierce the creature, traveling through to other targets. Each creature in a line with the point of origin including the creature and facing directly away from you must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failed save, a creature takes piercing damage equal to the stamina die.

Enhance

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

As an action, you can make a weapon attack in an attempt to knock the creature back. 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 push it up to 2 meters away from you.

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 you make a weapon attack roll against a creature, you can strike precisely. Roll a d3 and add the result to your attack roll. You can do so after the roll but before any effects of the roll occur.

Enhance
You can augment this maneuver with the following options, expending stamina dice for each option.
  • You can expend 2 additional stamina dice to roll 2d3.

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

As an action, you can make a ranged weapon attack in an attempt to ricochet the attack toward another target. On a hit, the attack ricochets toward another target, which must be within 4 meters of the first target. The second target must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or it takes damage equal to the stamina die.

The damage type is the same as the weapon used.

Enhance

You can increase the damage 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.

As an action, you can attach some rope to a projectile and make a ranged weapon attack with it in an attempt to entangle the creature. On a hit, if the creature is Large or smaller, the rope wraps around it, reducing its speed to 0. The rope has no effect on creatures that are formless.

The rope is an object that can be damaged and thus removed. It has 10 Defense and 5 Health. A creature entangled by the rope or one that can touch the creature can also use an action to make an Acrobatics or Brawn check (its choice) against your maneuver DC.

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 two ranged weapon attacks against two different targets.

Enhance

You can make an additional ranged weapon attack for every two additional stamina die expended, but you can only attack each creature once.
