- This article is about the combat maneuver. For the verb, see TRIP (verb).
Attempt to trip your opponent with a polearm or staff.
Successful trip attempts can result in your opponent suffering a roundtime penalty, minor leg damage, and possibly being knocked down.
On slight successes, the target will be knocked off balance (a roundtime penalty). On more substantial successes, the target will be knocked down with roundtime. All successful results can inflict minor critical damage to the legs and/or trigger weapon flares.
Characters need at least 15 ranks of Two-Handed Weapons or Polearm Weapons beyond the CMAN Trip itself to use it effectively.
