(E) Feint

  • Attribute:  Influence
  • Type:  Attack
  • Time:  One action
  • Description:  A character with this skill is adept at making a foe believe that an attack is coming from one direction while they attack from another. On a successful skill check, the target is subject to an attack of opportunity, though they are allowed a Reaction save or related defend skill to recognize the deception, with a -1 modifier per two skill points in Martial 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 Martial Combat
