Maneuvers

As an action, 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 on a miss by 4 or less) for each additional stamina die expended.

As a reaction, which you use when a hostile creature within 5 meters is reduced to 0 health or a friendly creature within 5 meters is reduced to less than half its health, you can move up to half your speed and make an attack roll against a creature.

On a hit, the creature takes damage equal to the stamina die, but no additional effects from hitting apply.

On a critical hit, add twice as much damage.

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

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 3 meters straight toward a creature, you can make a melee weapon attack against it.

On a critical hit, add twice as much damage.

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

1 minute/stamina die

On a hit, add one stamina die to the attack’s damage and 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. This has no effect on any creature that cannot bleed or lose a vital liquid substance.

On a critical hit, add twice as much damage.
