(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; this attack skill may only be used with proficient blunt or pole weapons. 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 skill point in Armed Combat. If the target's save is successful, they may defend normally. It may be used as a Hack, Stab, or Swing 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 Armed Combat
