New Combat Options

Acrobatic and jumping attacks:

Once a character has 20 or more ranks in either acrobatics and/or jump, new combat options are opened.

 

20 ranks+

Jumping/Acrobatic Charge:

The character may use Jump or acrobatics as part of a charge. The combatant makes an appropriate jump or acrobatics roll, if successful look up the number in the bonus column and add that to the attack. The manoeuvre roll should be Very Hard or worse.

Acrobatic Attack:

The character may use acrobatics in conjunction with the ’press & attack’ or ’move & attack’ combat options. This combat option is used to flip off walls to attack, swing around pillars or bars and attack a pursuer or get around an attacker to get positional modifiers. This manoeuvre involves mainly rolls, swings and flips. It is a Very Hard manoeuvre or worse, GMs discretion. Also, at the GMs discretion, the character may gain some bonus to his attack, or adjustment to his critical result as a result of his manoeuvre (bonus column divided by 10 for example).

This combat option might take more than one round, GM’s discretion.

Jumping Attack:

Need to jump down on someone? Need to jump over an opponent?

With this combat option the character may use his jump skill to jump over opponents, around them, down on them from a height to attack in the same round, this combat option is used in conjunction the ’press & attack’ or ’move & attack’ combat options. It is a Hard to Extremely Hard manoeuvre to complete successfully, GMs discretion. Also, at the GMs discretion, the character may gain some bonus to his attack, or adjustment to his critical result as a result of his manoeuvre.

This combat option might take more than one round, GM’s discretion.

40 ranks+

Combo Charge:

The character may use jump and acrobatics as part of the same charge, thus being able to charge over obstacles and around corners. The difficulty should be Extremely Hard, possibly Very Hard. Again the charge bonus comes from the bonus column. This combat option is used in conjunction the ’press & attack’ or ’move & attack’ combat options. Also this combat option might take more than one round.

Combo Attack:

The character may use jump and acrobatics as part of an attack. Thus he can use his environment to its fullest by swinging around bars, flipping off walls, jumping and somersaulting to attack his opponents. No combatant should be allowed to move more than his BMR x2 (GMs discretion). Bonuses may be gained through these types of attacks, but mostly only positional modifiers, possibly AAR adjustments, to possibly OB modifiers. The difficulty starts at Very Hard.

This combat option is used in conjunction the ’press & attack’ or ’move & attack’ combat options. Also this combat option might take more than one round, GM’s discretion.
