(E) Rapid Strike
- Attribute: Agility
- Type: Attack
- Time: One action
- Description: This skill may be used to increase the speed factor of a proficient melee weapon by one. It does not increase the number of actions gained in a round, rather it allows characters to extend the number of attacks that can be made with the proficient weapon during the round. All attack actions made beyond the normal speed factor use this skill to hit, with any applicable modifiers. 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
