(M) Slip Attack

(M) Slip Attack

  • Attribute:  Influence
  • Type:  Attack
  • Time:  One action
  • Description:  Those with this skill are able to use misdirection to make a blindsided attack from any character facing. On a successful skill check, targets are 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 skill point in Martial Combat, and any damage sustained is considered body damage, with all appropriate modifiers. 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:  The (E) Feint skill and eight skill points in Martial Combat
