You have learned how to isolate a foe by pushing them away with your shield.


Attempt to push your foe away with your shield. Creatures can be pushed completely out of the room, players will merely be pushed back, both suffering roundtime. You may specify a direction or exit to push a creature, or simply not specify a direction for a random direction.

Additional Information


[Lower Dragonsclaw, Forest]
The moss grows like a blanket up the trunks of the oak and modwir trees here.  The large trees stand, indifferent to the encroachment of the harmless fungus.  You also see a forest troll.
Obvious paths: east, southeast, west

[Lower Dragonsclaw, Forest]
Modwir trees predominate this section of forest, as though the oak, satisfied with its allotted space, has made room for the tall pines.  You also see a forest troll and a charred skull on a pike.
Obvious paths: north, south, northwest
Roundtime: 4 sec.
