Maneuvers

As an action, you can use Stealth without using an action. Additionally, before the end of your next turn, you can add the stamina die to an attack’s damage (add half on a miss by 4 or less) if you have advantage on the attack roll, or if the creature is within 1 meter of an enemy of the creature that isn’t incapacitated and you don’t have disadvantage on the attack roll.

Enhance

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

As an action, make a weapon attack to leave a twisted wound that can’t be healed so easily.

On a hit, add the stamina die to the attack’s damage and the creature must succeed on a Fortitude saving throw or its maximum health is reduced by the stamina die result for 1 hour. Any effect that removes a condition allows a creature’s maximum health to return to normal before that time passes.

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.

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.

As a reaction, which you use when an enemy within 5 meters moves away from you, you can move up to half your speed toward the creature’s position. This movement doesn’t provoke opportunity attacks.
