(E) Rolling Strike

(E) Rolling Strike

  • Attribute:  Constitution
  • Type:  Attack
  • Time:  One action
  • Description:  A character with this skill can move and attack in the same action. This is a disciplined move, not a rush type attack; it includes moving into, through, and/or out of a foe's threat area, without any penalty modifiers or drawing an attack of opportunity. All movement rules apply and it may be countered by a readied action which will force the attacker to stop and defend or suffer an attack of opportunity. 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 and leaves the character open to an attack of opportunity, unless they stop to take a defend action.
  • Example of use:  Make an attack and escape a flanked position, run past a foe while attacking, move through a threat area to setup a flank, etc.
  • Prerequisites:  The Running skill and four skill points in Unarmed Combat
