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.

1 minute/stamina die

As an action, you roar, rear up, flex your wings, or do another similar movement that frightens creatures. Each creature of your choice that is not a construct or an undead in a sphere around you must succeed on a Will saving throw or become frightened of you for the duration or until you are incapacitated.

While frightened by this maneuver, a creature must move at least half its speed away from you by the safest available route at the start of each of its turns, unless there is nowhere to move. If the creature ends its turn in a location where it doesn’t have line of sight to you, the creature can can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on itself on a success.

As an action, you can use the Disengage action and the Dash action.

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.
