Unarmed Combat

(E) Feint

(E) Feint

  • Attribute:  Influence
  • Type:  Attack
  • Time:  One action
  • Description:  A character with this skill is adept at making a foe believe that an attack is coming from one direction while they attack from another. On a successful skill check, the target is subject to an attack of opportunity, though they are allowed a Reaction save or related defend skill to recognize the deception, with a -1 modifier per two skill points in Unarmed Combat. If the target's save is successful, they may defend normally. It may be used with any striking attack (assuming the character has the skill), with all related and general combat modifiers applied normally. If the skill check fails or the target makes a successful defend, the attack misses.
  • Prerequisites:  Four skill points in Unarmed Combat
