(M) Precision

  • Attribute:  Perception
  • Type:  Attack
  • Time:  One action
  • Description:  A character with this skill is able to make devastating strikes to specific body parts. With a successful skill check, the target is required to save against the appropriate disabling effect, depending on the body part struck and damage taken, and suffers damage to their health and/or body scores. In addition, the Called Shot modifier is reduced by one point per two skill points in Martial Combat. This attack 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..
  • Example of use:  Attack the arm to keep the opponent from using a weapon in combat, strike an opponent in the leg to keep them from retreating out of combat, go for a knockout with a blow to the head, etc.
  • Prerequisites:  Eight skill points in Martial Combat
