Type of Feat: General
Required for: Improved Knockdown
Specifics: A character with this feat can attempt to knock his melee opponents to the ground. The character makes an attack roll at âˆ’4, and if successful the defender makes an opposed discipline check against the characterâ€™s Attack Roll. If the character wins, the defender is knocked to a prone position.
Use: Selected. Prone characters cannot attack. Characters receive a +4 bonus to attack prone opponents in melee, but a âˆ’4 penalty to attack them with a ranged weapon. A character can only make a Knockdown attempt on opponents that are one size category larger than himself or smaller. The opponent gets a +4 bonus on his opposed check for every size category he is larger than the attacker, or a âˆ’4 penalty for every size category he is smaller.
- Monks receive this feat for free at level 6.
