|Pungeon Pendragon (Strike)|
|Prerequisite:||Four Pungeon Pendragon maneuvers|
|Initiation Action:||1 immediate action|
|Duration:||1d4+1 rounds, instantaneous (see text)|
You begin a soliloquy detailing your way of life and insulting and looking down on that of a particular enemy of yours with words that words are quite a smack, rather piercing, or just plain cutting remarks. What you say can sound quite acidic to the ears of others, or just shocking. You can deliver your lines coldly or with heated passion.
Upon initiating this maneuver, you must designate one enemy within 60 feet of you. Time speeds up for you and the designated enemy compared to the rest of the world, as if you were both affected by time stop. The difference though is that you can still harm the designated enemy, or move objects held by him, but he can do the same to you. Furthermore, during this time, you cannot make attacks as normal (nor cast offensive spells or summon creatures, but you can still cast other spells). Instead, you can make one Truespeak checks per round of apparent time for every 5 points of BAB you have (maximum 4 at BAB+16 or higher) as a full attack, or one Truespeak checks as a standard action. You deal damage equal to your check result, half of which is bludgeoning/piercing/slashing damage (choose one), the other half being acid/cold/electricity/fire damage (choose one). Your opponent can still move and act as normal and may attack you as normal, though otherwise the time stop effect affects him normally.
