(E) Strangle

(E) Strangle

  • Attribute:  Influence
  • Type:  Attack
  • Time:  One action
  • Description:  Those with this skill are able to use their mind to choke the life out of their opponents. With a successful skill check, a target up to a number of yards away equal to the Influence score plus one yard per two skill points in Iinexsis Combat, begins to asphyxiate as the attacker puts pressure on their throat; one action per round must be spent to maintain the choke. The target is allowed a defend action to negate the attack; if hit, they get a base strength save each round against the attackers Influence score, with a bonus or penalty modifier to the Stamina save to avoid passing out based on the success of the roll and difference between the two scores. It may be used to effect up to medium sized sized targets of up to three hundred pounds, with a -4 modifier per increased size category and/or a -2 modifier per additional fifty pounds. The attack appears as a blurred link (the color and shape of which is defined by the character) between the attacker and target. If the skill check fails or the target makes a successful defend, the attack misses.
  • Prerequisites:  Four skill points in Iinexsis Combat
