Campaign of the Month: September 2013
Step: Rank + STR
The adept takes advantage of surprise to inflict a telling blow. If his Attack Test against a Surprised (p.409) opponent is successful, the adept substitutes his Surprise Strike Step for his Strength Step for the Damage Test. Usually, opponents can only be Surprised at the start of an encounter, but some talents, skills, and other abilities allow the adept to regain a situation of Surprise.
