Evading

Evading is a Fighting FEAT that is used by characters who are playing for time, looking for a weak spot in the opponent's attack and hoping to avoid getting their bodies splattered over the countryside.

Evading is an effective defensive tactic only against adjacent attackers, such as those engaged in Slugfest or wrestling combat. Only a single opponent may be Evaded.

A character who chooses to Evade announces that intention during the declaration phase of the turn. If both sides are evading, no actual combat occurs both opponents are engaged in a flurry of feints and parries and no real blows are landed.

The Evading character makes no attacks that round, but rolls on the Universal Table. The results are Auto-Hit, Evasion, Evasion +1CS, and Evasion +2CS.
