Hack

  • Attribute:  Strength
  • Type:  Attack
  • Time:  One action
  • Description:  A character with this skill can make a practiced downward chop attack from the elbow with a proficient weapon. The power of this attack carries a -2 modifier to hit, but causes an additional point of damage per two skill points in Mounted Combat for that particular attack; these modifiers stack with all other combat modifiers. Attacks may be made from a standing position in the stirrups, a seated position on the mount, or from the ground, however, because of its aggressive nature, use of this attack action negates any defensive modifiers gained by defend skills for the remainder of the round, i.e. general Dodge, general Evade, etc. On a successful skill check, the target is hit and may defend normally; if the skill check fails or the target makes a successful defend, the attack misses.
  • Specializations:  (Required) Proficient weapon(s)
