Penalties to hit specific targets are reduced by one. (See Specified Targets, p. 165). (ven when a specific part of an opponent is not targeted, armor penalties to your characters %rawl attacks are reduced by one. Duck and Weave (): )our character is trained to instinctively duck and evade an opponents blows. *se the higher of your characters #e$terity or +its to determine his #efense when dealing with %rawl,based attacks only -not against +eaponry attacks.. &f a combination of %rawl, and +eaponry,based attacks is focused on your character in the same turn, use his normal #efense against both. Defensive Attack (): )our character has mastered the ability to fight defensively. +hen using this maneuver, your character gains /0 to his #efense for the turn, but any attack he makes suffers a ,0 penalty. 1e can move no more than his !peed while performing a #efense 2ttack maneuver in a turn.

This is cumulative across multiple, successive attacks, up to a ma$imum #efense penalty e9ual to the lower of the attackers +its or #e$terity. 2fter that, the target recovers her full #efense, and the character must try to impose this penalty once again. )our character can use #estroy #efense across multiple rounds as long as he does nothing e$cept deliver successful %rawl attacks. &f he misses or performs any other action, the running penalty imposed by the erit automatically 7resets8 to :. The target retains her full #efense against other attackers; shes only e$traordinarily vulnerable to the maneuver users %rawl attacks.
