Shield Trample is a shield specialization available to Warriors only.


Instead of attempting to wound foes with a shield charge, the warrior has learned how to best send them careening into one another, knocking them down and sowing havoc on the battlefield.

Mechanics: If the warrior is successful upon attacking his primary target, it will be sent careening into another foe on the battlefield before falling to the ground. If a secondary maneuver check is passed, that foe will also be knocked down. All foes successfully affected by this maneuver will suffer Roundtime.

It seems that is possible to use this maneuver on corporeal undead; investigation is ongoing.
