(E) Knockdown

(E) Knockdown

  • Attribute:  Strength
  • Type:  Attack
  • Time:  One action
  • Description:  This skill is used to strike a target in such a way as to knock them to the ground. On a successful skill check the target is knocked prone, though a Reaction save or related defend skill may be attempted to remain standing, 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
