(E) Torque Climb

Description:  Most often used in an atmosphere or near a gravity well, this is a powerful maneuver used to move from a defensive to neutral position by angling away from an opponent at full thrust. With a successful skill check, the character moves vertically away from an opponent at full speed, using gravity to make it harder to counter the maneuver; moving from a defensive to neutral position or making an escape. If the skill check fails, the angle of ascent is not steep enough, allowing the opponent to counter at no modifier, and the maximum speed is reduced by one half for that action.
