(M) Crush

  • Attribute:  Influence
  • Type:  Attack
  • Time:  One action
  • Description:  Characters with this skill are able to focus their mind to create a vice of force, that compresses and holds opponents, while causing damage. With a successful skill check, a target up to a number of yards away equal to the skill rank is held prone, taking damage equal to the Influence score plus one per two points in Iinexsis Combat; damage is caused with each pulse, which takes one action, at least one pulse must be made each round to maintain the crush. Target's are able to avoid the attack with a successful defend action and may attempt escape each round; the attacker may use this skill to negate escape attempts, assuming the actions are available. 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 blur of spinning bands (the color and shape of which is defined by the character) that rush at and then surround the target. If the skill check fails, the attack misses.
  • Prerequisites:  The (E) Immobilize skill and eight skill points in Iinexsis Combat
