  • Attribute:  Perception
  • Type:  Combat

  • Description:  Those with this skill are able to focus their minds onto the field of battle to be aware of attack from any direction. A successful skill check is required to activate this ability and it can be maintained for a number of rounds equal to the Constitution score; when active, the character cannot be surprised and gains a defend bonus equal to the number of skill points in Iinamic Combat that stacks with existing combat modifiers. Only one combat enhancement may be active at a time; the time requirement is for activating the skill only. If the skill check fails, the enhancement is unable to be activated for that round.
