Descent Skills
Table of Contents

Overview

This page is for containing the Descent skills so they don't overflow the original page horribly, and also to organize them a bit better. Skill categories will now be organized per-class and then sub-organized alphabetically.

Skill Format is as follows: Name(Skill Tier, Prerequisite(s), Speed)

Skills whose Speed Rating is prefaced by a + are used in conjunction with the user's weapon and modifies their weapon speed accordingly. Skills with Passive have a constant effect or are automatically active under certain circumstances. Non-Combat skills are usable outside of battles and usually consume Stamina when used. Reaction skills can be activated at any time, but usually only make sense to activate in response to someone else's action.

Skill Tier is the cost in skill points to learn. If Speed is a +X, that means it adds X to the character's weapon speed to determine the actual speed.

When generated, all characters start with the skills labelled Starting Skill which are appropriate to their class.

Denier

Refusal

Mind Over Matter(Starting skill, Passive)

The Denier gains a +1 damage bonus per level to all his attacks with Unarmed weapons.

Dismissal(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Mind Over Matter, Passive)

The Denier gains a +1 armor bonus per level as long as he's neither carrying a shield or wearing any armor.

Gravity Well(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Dismissal, Passive)

Whenever an enemy leaves or passes through the same range band as the Denier, in the direction of the Denier's farthest range band, they're slowed by 3 Ticks and they can move no farther than the band immediately behind the Denier.

Deny Injury(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Mind Over Matter, Speed 3/Non-Combat)

In combat, allows the Denier to undo his own wounds, healing 1 point of health per 2 Adrenaline spent. Outside of combat, allows the Denier to heal his own wounds at a cost of 1 Stamina per point of health.

Defy Matter(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Mind Over Matter, Speed +1)

The Denier makes an attack as usual but the damage dealt is armor-ignoring if it hits as the Denier simply refuses to believe in his opponent's defenses. Cost: 4 Adrenaline.

Phase(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Defy Matter, Non-Combat)

This allows the Denier to ignore the physical reality of an object and reach/walk through it, though this only works for inanimate objects, not living creatures. Requires a TN15 check to do which, if failed, leaves the Denier partially phased through the object he was trying to penetrate. This doesn't usually do any damage to the Denier, as his body displaces the object's mass, but does cause some work for his friends when they need to free him. Cost: 4 Stamina.

Ignore Gravity(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Dismissal, Non-Combat)

With this ability the Denier is able to briefly ignore gravity, essentially moving as though he's walking or running along a flat, solid surface in any direction, no matter whether there's actually a surface there or not. He could, for instance, walk straight up in the air or scale a cliffside simply by pretending it's the ground and it's everyone else who's wrong about gravity. The effect is temporary and requires considerable effort, however. For every minute the Denier uses the ability, he spends 2 Stamina.

Sever World-Line(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Dismissal, Speed 5)

Mark a target and keep track of all damage they do, and all adrenaline spent on skills and attacks targeting them(not range bands they're in, but them specifically) for the next 30 Ticks. If the target is killed within those 30 Ticks, recoup all the tracked damage and adrenaline expended, including the cost of this skill. Cost: 10 Adrenaline.

Unarmed

Unarmed Expertise(Starting skill, Passive)

The Denier gets a +3 to hit with any unarmed attacks. Some weapons, like heavy gauntlets, brass knuckles and punch daggers are considered "Unarmed," they'll be noted as such in the equipment section.

Unarmed Mastery(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Unarmed Expertise, Passive)

The Denier gets a further +2 to hit with all unarmed attacks.

Flurry of Strikes(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Unarmed Expertise, Speed +3)

For every 3 Adrenaline paid, the Denier can make a basic attack of any kind during this action, at any target within range. These attacks may be distributed among any number of targets.

Sweeping Kick(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Unarmed Expertise, Speed +2)

Dealing normal damage, the Denier's attack targets two enemies in the same range band. Only one attack roll is made and applied to both, the same goes for damage. Cost: 2 Adrenaline.

Headbutt(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Flurry of Strikes, Speed 5)

The Denier makes an attack doing normal Unarmed damage, with no accuracy modifier. If the attack hits, he takes half as much damage as the target(prior to reduction by armor, but the Denier's own armor applies) and knocks the target down the Initiative track a number of Ticks equal to the amount of damage done post-armor. Cost: 6 Adrenaline.

Dirty Fighting(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Sweeping Kick, Speed +1)

The Denier makes a normal attack, which gains a +2 accuracy if it's the first time he uses it in a battle. If the attack hits, the target has all their speed ratings penalized by +2 for their next five actions. Cost: 3 Adrenaline.

Grapple(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Unarmed Expertise, Speed +2)

The Denier makes a range 0 attack doing damage as per his equipped weapon, and at normal accuracy. Until the Denier attacks another target(multi-target attacks included), the victim of the Grapple is unable to leave their current range band, and every action they take they're subject to a free attack from the Denier with their equipped weapon. If anything moves them from the range band they were occupying when Grappled, the Grapple effect is instantly broken. The Grapple is also broken if the Denier moves or is moved from the Range Band they were in when they initiated the Grapple.

The Denier may also choose to end the Grapple by making a range 5 attack at Speed +0, which does weapon damage multiplied by 2 and can target an empty range band or an enemy. If the target is an empty range band, no attack roll is necessary. Whether the attack hits or misses the Grappled target is moved to the targeted range band or the same range band as the targeted enemy and is dealt damage by the ability. If the attack hits, the targeted enemy is also dealt this damage.

Void Whispers

Body Without Mind(Starting skill, Passive)

The Denier gains a +3 to doing anything that requires raw physical strength or adrenaline and little to no thought, as he decouples his mind and his body, allowing him to perfectly ignore straining muscles and the aches of exhaustion. Only works outside of combat as it requires a brief period of meditation that it's hard to find the peace for when someone's trying to beat your head in with a hammer.

Pierce Illusion(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Body Without Mind, Passive)

The Denier gains a +3 to seeing through falsehoods as the whispers of the Celestial spirits reveal the truth of the world to him. This includes magical illusions, discerning lies, seeing through disguises and noticing the carpet that someone's put over the spiked pit on the floor.

Terrifying Aura(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Body Without Mind, Speed 3)

All combatants are moved one range band away from the Denier as they try to avoid his sudden, terrifying aura. Allies in the same range band as the Denier may choose whether to move up or down a range band, unless they're already at the limit of how far up or down they can go. Cost: 2 Adrenaline.

Void Transformation(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Terrifying Aura, Speed 2)

For the Denier's next five actions, his Hands & Feet weapon is replaced with the following two:

Name Damage Range Speed Type Cost Encumbrance
Flaying Tentacle 1d4+2 2 3 Unarmed 0 0
Caustic Vomit 1d4+2 6 3 Unarmed 0 0

Costs 4 Adrenaline to use.

Incorporeality(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Pierce Illusion, Speed 2)

For the duration of the next 20 ticks, all damage the Denier takes and deals are halved(round up for damage done, and down for damage taken, to a minimum of 0). Cost: 5 Adrenaline.

Soul-Sealing Strike(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Pierce Illusion, Non-Combat)

Punches a Wound off of an ally, but instantly replaces it with one of the following Scars(roll 1d6 to determine which):

1-2: Lost Corporeality. +1 Armor, -1 to all damage done(to a minimum of 1).
3-4: Nightmares. -4 Maximum Stamina, +1 Defense.
5-6: Void Mutation. -1 to all non-intimidation social interaction, recovers 75% Stamina when resting without Rations(this effect doesn't stack on repeated gains of this Scar), +1 damage to unarmed combat attacks.

Costs 2 Stamina to use.

Temporal Tether(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Pierce Illusion, Speed 2)

Note down the target's current Range Band, Stamina, Adrenaline, Wounds, Scars and Health. For the next 20 Ticks, at any time, the Denier can revert the target to the noted state. The confusion for the sudden temporal whiplash shunts the target's next action five ticks down the initiative order. Cost: 5 Adrenaline.

Call Celestial Horror(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Void Transformation, Speed 6)

For the next 50 Ticks, every 5 Ticks, roll a d10. Counting from the farthest range band on the PC side, everyone in the rolled band(excepting the one the summoning Denier is in) will be subjected to an accuracy +6 attack that does 2d6 damage if it hits. Enemies killed by the Celestial Horror are assumed to be devoured and cannot be looted. Every time the Celestial Horror kills something, extend its duration by 10 Ticks. The Denier may reroll the location of any Celestial Horror attack once at the cost of 2 Adrenaline and then take the result he prefers. Cost: 8 Adrenaline.

Earth Cleric

Defender

Guardian(Starting Skill, Passive)

The Earth Cleric can choose to take half the damage that any ally in his range band would take, splitting the damage before armor is applied. Using this ability costs 2 Adrenaline.

Teamwork(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Guardian, Passive OR Non-Combat.)

Any attack the Earth Cleric makes against a target in the same range band as an ally gets a +2 to hit. Out of combat this allows the Earth Cleric to add +2 to any ally's roll if he can reasonably justify that teamwork would help(distracting guards to let someone else sneak by might work, for instance. Be generous in adjudicating this), the cost for the non-combat use is 1 Stamina.

Shield Expertise(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Guardian, Passive)

The Earth Cleric increases the armor value of any shield he's using by +1, and adds a +2 modifier to hit any time he has a shield in hand.

Barricade(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Shield Expertise, Passive) [EXPERIMENTAL]

Whenever an enemy attempts to leave or move through the same range band as the Earth Cleric, in the direction of the Earth Cleric's farthest range band, the Earth Cleric may pay 2 Adrenaline to stop them in his range band.

Shield Bash(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Guardian, Speed +1)

Make a normal attack with your equipped weapon, but add twice your shield's armor value(modified, not base) as bonus damage if it hits. Cost: 2 Adrenaline.

Shield Throw(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Shield Bash, Speed: 5)

A range 4 attack with a +2 accuracy modifier, does damage equal to four times your shield's modified armor value. Cost: 2 Adrenaline

Shield Mastery(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Shield Expertise, Passive)

The Earth Cleric increases the armor value of any shield he's using by +1, and adds a +1 modifier to hit any time he has a shield in hand. Additionally, the Earth Cleric gains a +3 to any out-of-combat action where he can reasonably describe that he's using his shield to aid him(a stealth roll aided by hiding behind his shield, rolling to escape pursuers by surfing his shield down a snowy slope, etc. the GM is encouraged to accept any sufficiently creative application.).

Shield Mastery is cumulative with Shield Expertise.

Moon's Orbit(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Shield Mastery, Speed 6)

Like the surviving moons orbit and protect the world, the Earth Cleric's shield orbits and protects the party for the next 20 Ticks. Until those Ticks are up, add the shield's armor value to all allies(including modifiers for Shield Expertise and Shield Mastery). While the shield is active, no one, not even the Earth Cleric, suffers from the shield's speed penalty. Additionally, any time an ally is hit by an attack, the Earth Cleric may instantly relocate to their range band before the attack finishes resolving at the cost of 2 Adrenaline. Cost: 8 Adrenaline.

Lithomancy

Unsteady Ground(Starting Skill, Speed 5)

All combatants in the target range band are dealt armor-ignoring damage equal to their armor value(up to a maximum of 10 damage), as the ground heaves and buckles below them, throwing them to their feet. They're also moved two ticks farther down the initiative scale. Cost: 4 Adrenaline.

Stone Prison(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Unsteady Ground, Speed 5)

Erects tone barriers that prevents any enemies or allies from moving in or out of the target range band. Anyone who wishes to resist the effect is subject to an attack at a +2 modifier which deals 1d6 damage. If they avoid the attack, they may move one range band up or down(unless they're already as near or close as they can be). If they're hit by the attack, the remain constrained to their range band. The effect lasts fifteen ticks. Cost: 4 Adrenaline.

Hurl Boulder(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Unsteady Ground, Speed 5)

The Earth Cleric propels a football-sized stone at the target in an attempt to pulp them. This is considered an attack with a +3 modifier to hit and a range of 4, and deals 1d6(+1 per level of the Earth Cleric) damage. If the attack hits, the target is forced back 2 range bands. Cost: 4 Adrenaline.

Magma Flow(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Stone Prison, Speed 5)

The Earth Cleric begins a Magma Flow which starts, by his choosing, at either the allied or enemy Distant Range Band. Every five ticks, the Magma Flow moves one Range Band towards the opposite Distant Range Band. When it eventually reaches that Range Band, the effect ends. Anyone present in a Range Band when the Magma Flow arrives takes 1d6 armor-ignoring damage. Cost: 4 Adrenaline

Stonecrafter(Tier 1, Prerequisites(s): Hurl Boulder, Passive)

The Earth Cleric becomes familiar with mining, geology, stonework and associated crafts, gaining +3 to any rolls involving performing these tasks or knowledge related to them.

Flesh to Stone(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Hurl Boulder, Speed 5)

The Earth Cleric chooses a target and, for the remainder of the combat, they are turned partially to stone. This halves the effectiveness of any range band changes they make(round down) and adds +1 to all their speed ratings, but also increases their armor by 4. The Earth Cleric can voluntarily end this effect at any time. Cost: 4 Adrenaline

Mooncall(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Magma Flow, Hurl Boulder, Speed 11)

The Earth Cleric calls upon a shard of the shattered moon to come crashing down on his enemies, targeting three adjacent range bands with a +6 accuracy attack which deals 2d10 damage if it hits. However, the attack rolls and damage are only rolled 10 Ticks after the ability is used. If one of the targeted range bands is Melee, allies in Melee will also be affected. Cost: 8 Adrenaline.

Orator

Inspiring Song(Starting skill, Speed 3/Passive)

Every allied character spends Stamina and gains Adrenaline as though they'd just taken an action, also counts as an action for the purpose of calculating Stamina expenditure and Adrenaline gain on the next action. The Earth Cleric is also familiar with musical instruments and has an excellent singing/choir voice, consider them to have a +3 if they attempt to use these abilities for something, as well as a +3 to all attack rolls using Instruments(or their special abilities when one is called for). Cost: 2 Adrenaline.

Calming Speech(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Inspiring Song, Speed 3)

Resets every allied character's Stamina expenditure and Adrenaline gain as though their next action was their first for the encounter. Character can choose to not be affected by this at no cost. Cost: 0 Adrenaline.

Legend Lore(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Inspiring Song, Passive)

The Earth Cleric gains a +3 to any checks involving historical knowledge, myths or identifying an artifact that may have stories about it or attached to it, or legendary/historical creatures.

Victorious Cheer(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Inspiring Song, Speed 3)

For every enemy that flees, is knocked out or killed within the next 20 ticks, all allies regain 5 Health and 5 Adrenaline. Cost: 3 Adrenaline

Shields Up!(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Inspiring Song, Speed 3)

For the next 10 ticks, all allies gain +3 armor against attacks of Range 2 or greater(only applies to attacks that actually USE that range. A range 4 attack used to attack an ally at range 1 wouldn't count). Cost: 2 Adrenaline

Glorious Anthem(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Victorious Cheer, Speed 8/+3)

Every 6 Ticks, Glorious Anthem adds a cumulative +1 to all allies' attack rolls and drains 3 Adrenaline from the Earth Cleric, the Earth Cleric can end the anthem as part of any action he takes without any additional speed modifier. While the Anthem is active, however, the Earth Cleric adds a +3 speed modifier to all of his own rolls. Cost: 9 Adrenaline.

Mercenary

Merchant

Negotiator(Starting skill, Passive)

Any time the Mercenary is negotiating for something(defining as making an offer to exchange one thing for another, or for the payout for providing a service. Figurative offers like "i'll pay you in not having a broken nose if you get off my damn lawn" don't count) he receives a +3 modifier to his roll. Also affects Haggling.

Keen Eye(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Negotiator, Passive)

The Mercenary gets a +3 modifier to any rolls that might turn up valuables, as he's learned to keep an eye out for anything that can increase his payday. Anything obviously valuable applies: Works of art, gemstones, gilded platemail, items of excellent craftsmanship, etc. but a powerful elixir contained within a dusty, anonymous bottle wouldn't count.

Distraction(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Negotiator, Speed 2)

The Mercenary tosses something from his pack into the fray as a distraction and changes his range band by 1 in either direction. If he actually chooses to abandon something valuable from his pack(i.e. money over 10 coins in value or a piece of equipment with utility), he can change his range band by 2 instead. The item is assumed to be lost(snatched up by a rat, dropped into a crack in the ground, broke on impact, etc.). Cost: 1 Adrenaline

Swift Escape(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Distraction, Speed 2)

The Mercenary instantly moves to the Distant Range Band. Cost: 4 Adrenaline.

Golden Eye(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Keen Eye, Passive)

The Mercenary finds the valuables that others miss. Any time the party finds money(emphasis on FINDS and MONEY. Payments for services rendered aren't included, nor are other valuables), the Mercenary manages to dig up an extra 20%(rounded up), representing coins that rolled into corners, between cracks in the pavestones, were covered in dust, etc.

Enduring Stone(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Negotiator, Speed 2)

For the next 30 Ticks, the Enduring Stone combat stance will have the following effects: Stamina expenditure per action is reduced to 1, Adrenaline gain per action is reduced to 2, Armor can reduce damage from attacks to 0, Armor is increased by 2. Enduring Stone cannot be active at the same time as Eroding Water or Flowing Fire. Cost: 1 Adrenaline.

Master Trader(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Negotiator, Passive)

Selling prices for the Merchant start at 35% rather than 25%, buying prices for the Merchant start at 90% rather than 100%. This does not affect initial henchman hiring costs, but does allow the Merchant to haggle for those as well as he would normal prices.

Contractual Agreement(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Master Trader, Speed 5)

The Merchant instantly pays every henchman and hireling's initial hiring cost again. For every five henchmen and hirelings currently alive(round up), the targeted enemy's Defense drops by 1 point for the next 20 Ticks. Cost: 2 Adrenaline.

Rogue

Mechanist(Starting skill, Passive)

The Mercenary gets a +3 modifier to any attempts to disarm mechanical traps or mechanisms, pick locks or otherwise open doors.

Ranged Expertise(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Mechanist, Passive)

Any attack with a weapon of range 3 or greater gains a +3 modifier to hit.

Ranged Mastery(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Ranged Expertise, Passive)

Any attack with a weapon of range 3 or greater gains a further +2 modifier to hit.

Hamstring(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Mechanist, Speed +1)

Does normal weapon damage. For the remainder of the fight, any effects that change the target's range band(willingly or forced) deal +4 damage.

Stealthy(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Mechanist, Passive)

Out of combat this adds a +3 to any thieving ventures based on stealth or dexterity(not including those affected by Mechanist), i.e. sneaking, picking pockets, palming small objects or cheating at cards, things of that caliber. In-Combat, this allows the character to reposition by 1 range band after initiative has been rolled and everyone has been placed in their starting bands.

Assassin(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Stealthy, Passive)

Out of combat, this allows the character to perform stealthy takedowns(lethal or non-lethal) if he succeeds at a TN15 check(modified for any relevant passives like being stealthy), thus delaying the point where the victim's guards or friends show up and start waving swords around or asking difficult questions like "how many pieces would you like be chopped into." In-combat, any time the party gains surprise, the Mercenary may choose to attempt to assassinate an enemy. This consists of a normal attack roll against a randomly chosen enemy. If the attack roll succeeds, that enemy enters combat at half health. In either case, the Mercenary is placed in the same range band as the enemy.

Always Prepared(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Mechanist, Non-Combat AND Passive)

If the Mercenary is missing any sort of conventional tool(rope, grappling hook, lockpicks, a wrench, a dozen screws, a soup bone, a bag of flour, etc.) for something he wants to do, he conveniently finds that he remembered to pack it after all. The item is lost or expended in use and cannot be re-used. The Mercenary also suffers no speed penalty for switching and stowing weapons, though picking up dropped weapons and equipment has a speed penalty as usual. Costs 2 Stamina to use.

Grappling Hook(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Always Prepared, Non-Combat OR Speed 5)

Grappling Hook is an accuracy +2 attack with range 5. If it hits, the target is moved into the same range band as the Mercenary, but suffers no damage. Cost: 5 Adrenaline.

Out of combat, Grappling Hook serves as a +3 to any attempts to do any climbing, mountaineering or abseiling.

Lightning Reflexes(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Ranged Expertise, Reaction)

When being targeted by an attack, the Mercenary can spend Adrenaline at a ratio of 2:1 to improve his Defense only for the purposes of resisting this attack if he uses this ability prior to the attack being rolled. After the attack is rolled, he can still increase his Defense but now at a cost of 3:1. The change to Defense expires as soon as the attack is resolved.

Eroding Water(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Ranged Expertise, Speed 2)

For the next 30 Ticks, the Eroding Water combat stance will have the following effects: All damage done is halved(round up), all enemy armor is ignored, the speed of all actions is increased by 1. Eroding Water cannot be active at the same time as Enduring Stone or Flowing Fire. Cost: 1 Adrenaline.

Barrage(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Ranged Expertise, Speed SPECIAL)

This ability requires a weapon with range 2 or greater. For every four Adrenaline paid into this ability, the Mercenary makes another attack with this ability(the first attack is free). For every 12 Adrenaline, add a fourth attack "free." Any Adrenaline paid to affect the accuracy of this skill affects all attacks made with it. The base speed is the Mercenary's weapon speed, +2 for every attack beyond the first. Attacks are distributed randomly among all enemies on the battlefield, with no limits on range or penalties for range.

Warrior

Charge!(Starting skill, Speed 4)

The Warrior moves ahead two range bands or until he enters the same range band as an enemy, he may then make an attack with his equipped weapon against an enemy in range. If he's already in the same range band as an enemy, this ability cannot be used. Cost: 2 Adrenaline.

Melee Expertise(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Charge!, Passive)

Any attack with a weapon of range 0 or 1 gains a +3 modifier to hit.

Melee Mastery(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Melee Expertise, Passive)

Any attack with a weapon of range 0 or 1 gains a further +2 modifier to hit.

Heavy Strike(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Charge!, Speed +1)

Does +4 damage and knocks the target back 1 range band. Uses the character's weapon range and requires a melee weapon.

Tackle(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Heavy Strike, Passive)

Any time an enemy leaves the range band the Mercenary is in, the Mercenary may make a free attack against them with his wielded weapon. Movement "across" his range(for instance, starting a band in front of him and then moving to a band behind him) also triggers this ability.

"Death Before Dishonor!"(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Melee Expertise, Speed 2)

While this ability is active, the Mercenary cannot be moved away into more distant range bands by any abilities. Instead, for every range band he would be moved, he takes 3 points of armor-ignoring damage. This ability can only be de-activated on the Mercenary's own turn, de-activating it costs no Adrenaline and has no speed rating associated with it and does not consume the action. Costs 2 Adrenaline to use.

Leadership(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Melee Expertise, Passive)

+3 to any rolls involving inspiring or coordinating others, the hiring price of followers and henchmen is reduced by 25%(round up) and the supply consumption of pack and riding animals are reduced by 50%(again, round up).

Melee Brutality(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Melee Expertise, Passive)

Any attack with a weapon of range 1 or 2 gains a +2 modifier to damage.

Wind Blade(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Heavy Strike, Speed +3)

Draws all enemies within 2 range bands, 1 range band closer and then attacks all enemies in range with a normal weapon attack(roll one attack and check it against the enemies' defenses individually, but roll damage per enemy). All enemies hit are pushed back 2 range bands. Cost: 5 Adrenaline.

Flowing Fire(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Melee Expertise, Speed 2)

For the next 30 Ticks, the Flowing Fire combat stance will have the following effects: Every turn the Mercenary expends as much Health as he does Stamina, every turn the Mercenary gains twice as much Adrenaline as he normally would, if the Mercenary lacks enough Stamina to spend, the remainder is taken out of his Health instead, the speed of all actions is reduced by 1. Flowing Fire cannot be active at the same time as Enduring Stone or Eroding Water.

Declare Challenge(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Flowing Fire, Speed 4)

The Mercenary marks an enemy. For the next 20 Ticks, this enemy takes double damage from the Mercenary(damage is doubled prior to armor), and half damage from all other sources(round down, armor can reduce this damage to 0). Cost: 4 Adrenaline.

Sorcerer

Alchemy

Grenade(Starting Skill, Speed: 5)

Grenade is a range 3 attack which targets every character in a given range band(i.e. it includes allies if they're present in the band), making a single attack and damage roll that applies to all characters affected. The damage dealt is 2d6. Cost: 2 Adrenaline.

Caustic Mixture(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Grenade, Speed 5)

Caustic Mixture is a range 3 attack with +1 accuracy which targets every character in a given range band(i.e. it includes allies if targeted at Melee range), making a single attack and damage roll that applies to all characters affected.

Smoke Bomb(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Grenade, Speed 3)

Smoke Bomb targets any range band and covers it with thick, choking smoke. The smoke does no damage, but any attack aimed in of, out of, or across the range band is made at a -3, affecting both allies and enemies.

Conductive Bomb(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Grenade, Speed 5)

Conductive Bomb is a range 3 attack that does 2d6 damage to a single enemy. However, if it succeeds, immediately make another attack against a target within range 0 or 1. Continue doing this until you run out of targets(each can only be targeted once) or Conductive Bomb misses. If only allies are available within range, one of them must be targeted, but they only take 1d6 damage if hit. Cost: 4 Adrenaline.

Strong Throwing Arm(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Grenade, Passive)

Adds +1 range to any Alchemy skill or to any thrown weapon.

Throwing Expertise(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Grenade, Passive)

Adds +3 to the attack roll of any Alchemy skill or any thrown weapon.

Throwing Mastery(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Throwing Expertise, Passive)

Caustic Vial(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Caustic Mixture, Non-Combat)

Allows the Sorcerer a +5 to disabling mechanisms/traps and picking locks via the use of vials of powerful, acidic liquids. If the attempt fails, however, it will almost certainly trigger the mechanism disastrously, fuse the lock together, etc.

Bolstering Mixture(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Caustic Mixture, Non-Combat)

Allows the Sorcerer to mix up a batch of chemicals that makes the recipient calmer and almost completely immune to fear. Costs 1 Stamina per recipient, and lasts until the next Rest. Affected recipients only gain as much Adrenaline as they spend Stamina, rather than twice as much, but start the fight with 10 Adrenaline.

Berserker Pack(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Bolstering Mixture, Speed 4)

For the next 10 Ticks, the targeted ally subtracts 2 from the speed of their wielded weapon(to a minimum of 1) and will continue fighting even when reduced below 0 Health(if reduced to 0 Health or less, Wounds and unconsciousness are applied when the Berserker Pack's effect ends). Cost: 6 Adrenaline.

Elementalist

Elemental Spark(Starting Skill, Speed: 3)

Elemental Spark is a range 3 attack that targets a single enemy with a spark of unfocused elemental energy. This attack is made with a +2 to hit and does 1d6+2 damage. Cost: 2 Adrenaline

Burning Touch(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Elemental Spark, Speed 3 OR Out of Combat)

Burning Touch is a range 0 attack that lights the Sorcerer's hands on fire and allows him to strike all enemies in the targeted range band with it. The attack does 1d6+2 damage. Cost: 2 Adrenaline.

Out of combat, Burning Touch allows the Sorcerer to effortlessly conjure small flames for starting fires or providing small amounts of light.

Fireball(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Burning Touch, Speed 5)

Cauterize(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Burning Touch, Non-Combat OR Speed 5)

Cauterized: All Adrenaline gain is halved(round up), Stamina drain is unaffected. Scar: Once Burned. The character gains +1 to their base Defense, but anything that moves them into the same range band as an enemy drains 2 Adrenaline from them(cannot reduce them to less than zero Adrenaline).

Frost Wall creates a wall in the targeted range band. All attacks that bypass the Wall(i.e. any attack that crosses that range band or starts in it and isn't Range 0) are at a -3 to hit.

Illusion(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Illuminate, Non-Combat)

Allows the Sorcerer to call up audible and visible illusions(they won't affect any other senses besides sight and sound, though), with a +3 to his rolls to make them believable. This will only determine whether the Sorcerer makes them look real, though, people may still be able to reason that there probably isn't actually a kraken inside the outhouse, and ignore the giant thrashing tentacles. Cost: 2 Stamina to use.

Invisibility(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Call Shadows, Non-Combat)

Allows the Sorcerer to cloak someone's presence from the senses of sight and sound, giving a +5 to any attempts they make to remain unseen and unheard. If they attack anyone, whether the target is killed or not, the disguise is broken, though they can otherwise speak and interact with objects without giving themselves away. The effect lasts for a few minutes(i.e. as long as is dramatically appropriate). Cost: 2 Stamina per hidden target.

Shield of Light(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Illusion, Speed 4)

Surrounds the target in confusing illusionary shapes and auras, making them difficult to hit. For the next 10 Ticks, their Base Defense is increased by 2. Cost: 2 Adrenaline

Summon Shadows(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Invisibility, Speed 5)

The Sorcerer pulls deep shadows out of every dark nook and cranny, infusing them with magical power to make them pseudo-real. For the next 20 Ticks, the Sorcerer is accompanied by two Shadows which occupy the same Range Band as him. They act on the same Tick he does without costing any further Adrenaline or affecting his Speed. Enemies will not target the Shadows, but they can be hit by attacks that hit the Sorcerer's entire Range Band, and have a Base Defense of 15 and a Health of 10. On the Sorcerer's tick, they can either make an Accuracy +2, Range 0, 1d6 Damage attack OR an Accuracy +2, Range 3, 1d6 damage attack. Damage done by the Shadows ignore all Armor. Cost: 6 Adrenaline

Stellar Aura(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Shield of Light, Speed 8)

For the next 15 Ticks, every 5 Ticks(as well as when Stellar Aura is cast), all combatants are moved one range band closer to the Sorcerer. Any enemy combatant entering the Sorcerer's range band is dealt 2d8 damage. If they're present in the range band when Stellar Aura updates, they will also suffer 2d8 damage. Cost: 8 Adrenaline.

Shadow Transformation(Tier 3, Prerequisite(s): Summon Shadows, Non-Combat OR Speed 6)

In combat, Shadow Transformation turns the Sorcerer or a chosen ally into a shadow form, allowing them to instantly reposition to any range band of their choice, as well as ignoring any effects that would normally be triggered by movement(reactions from bypassed enemies, skills currently affecting specific range bands, etc.). Cost: 6 Adrenaline.

Out of Combat, Shadow Transformation turns the Sorcerer and/or any number of allies the Sorcerer pays for into two-dimensional shadows, temporarily allowing them to slip under doors, through cracks in walls, avoid traps, sneak past unaware enemies, etc. Any attempts at stealth in this state receive a +5. Shadows are, however, limited to moving along surfaces, so they would be unable to cross a chasm in this form except by going down first one side, across the bottom, and then up the other. In practical terms the out-of-combat transformation lasts approximately a few minutes(i.e. enough to bypass one or maybe two obstacles if they're close together). Cost: 3 Adrenaline per target.

Dual Strike(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Chain Grapple, Speed SPECIAL)

When using this ability, even if combat is immediately about to break out, everyone will stop and listen to your argument before doing anything else, though they may go right back to fighting afterwards if you don't convince them or if someone starts doing something hostile during your argument(so no, it's not a way to make someone calmly listen while you disembowel them). This ability can be used to delay the outbreak of combat before surprise is rolled for, which will turn it into a both-sides-in-formation scenario. Cost: 10 Stamina.

Mend/Unravel(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Sudden Blow, Non-Combat/Speed 10)

In combat, this ability allows you to heal injuries at a cost of 1 Health for every Adrenaline spent, and requires the target to be in the same range band as you. Out of combat, it heals 2 Health for every Stamina spent. However, at any time, the character can undo any healing he's provided in the past, doing double the damage formerly healed(in story terms, mild injuries are suddenly grievous, and grievous injuries repaired are almost inevitably fatal). Against NPC's, it allows the character to heal practically any injury, 2 Stamina for minor injuries, 5 for anything involving broken or crippled limbs, and 10 for anything that would kill the NPC without immediate help. Cost: Variable.

Disintegrating Aura(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Mend/Unravel, Speed 3)

Everyone contributing to the pool still uses their own Armor and Defense stats. When the effect ends, all Health in the pool is evenly redistributed to the participants. Any participants allotted more health than their maximum gain only their maximum, and the remaining Health is lost. Cost: 6 Adrenaline.

Wavebreaker

Turbulence(Starting Skill, Passive)

At the start of combat, roll 1d10 twice to choose two range bands, ignoring the user's range band and rerolling one die if the result is the same. Each chosen range band contains a Wave which allows the owner to move into and out of its range band without expending any adrenaline or affecting his speed if he's in the range band or adjacent to it.

Flow and Ebb(Tier 1, Prerequisite(s): Turbulence, Passive)

Cavitating Strike(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Surf, Speed 5)

When present in the same range band as one Wave, the owner can instantly move to the other wave, making an attack against every target in between the two Waves as though he was present in the same range band as them, with a +2 to hit and a +2 to damage done. Cost: 5 Adrenaline.

Geyser(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Undertow, Speed 5)

Tsunami(Tier 2, Prerequisite(s): Vortex, Speed 5)
