Spherus: Art Moves

Multiple Attacks Option:
Once a warrior's Art level reaches 50, they can perform up to three attacks a round if they so desire. These attacks lose any to-hit or damage bonuses that they would receive from a warrior's skill level. The warrior can perform any three moves he desires, but the total skill required to perform each move cannot exceed his skill level. The only restriction is that he cannot perform the same move twice.

Prone: Some moves have the ability to knock an opponent prone. A prone opponent receives a -20 to hit, AC and all checks, and a +5 to speed. Opponents can use their action to recover from prone, or can do so as a non-action with a x1 Agi. Check (without the -20 implied by the Prone condition) on their turn.

Blind: Some moves have the ability to blind an opponent. Blinded opponents suffer a -20 to-hit during their next action, after which they recover from the blindness.

Winded: Some moves have the ability to wind an opponent. Winded opponents suffer a penalty of -10 to checks and AC and +3 speed until the start of their next action.

Knockback: Some moves have the ability to knock an opponent backwards. The attacker can choose to move a foe that they afflicted with knockback one hexagon in any direction.

Undefendable: Some moves are undefendable (defense). The Defense skill cannot be used to block such moves.


The following techniques can be used once the warrior reaches the listed amount of Art skill. No more than 100 points can be put into this skill.
