Maneuvers

As an action, you can make a melee weapon attack against a creature after you move at least 4 meters straight toward it. 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, the creature must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or you can push it up to 2 meters away from you and knock it prone.

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.

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 in a sphere around you must succeed on a Will saving throw or become frightened of you for the duration. A construct or an undead is immune to this effect.

While frightened by this maneuver, a creature must move at least half its speed away from you by the safest available route on 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 make a Will saving throw.

On a successful save, the effect ends for that creature.

If a creature’s saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to your Fearsome Beast for the next 24 hours.

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 use the Dash action twice. You also have advantage on Athletics checks to jump.
