Joust

  • Attribute:  Constitution
  • Type:  Attack
  • Time:  One action
  • Description:  Those with this skill are adept at striking opponents with a spear, lance, or other type of proficient pole weapon from the back of a mount. The attack can be used in two ways, either to cause damage or to unseat an opponent. When used as a damage causing attack, there is a -2 modifier to hit, but to calculate damage, add the mount's single action move rate at the time of attack to the weapon damage, plus one per skill point in Mounted Combat. When used to unseat an opponent, there is a -4 modifier to hit and damage is calculated as the mount's single action move rate at the time of the attack plus weapon damage, and the target has a -1 modifier per two skill points in Mounted Combat to save against being unseated. 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 pole weapon(s)
