Synonyms: Charge !, In the name of God !

Special: Prowess

Surprise Attack ! is a Prowess, this special kind of Feat is an action that can only be done once per scenario.

To acquire it, you need to already have another Feat related to it, for example : Charismatic, Combat (battle), Favour, Deus Vult ! or Riot

Your Game Master may accept to waive such prerequisites if your background or in game actions justify it. Unlike normal Feats, a Prowess can be acquired several times.


You call forth an army of 30 people to the rescue.

As soon as your order is pronounced, arrows and catapulted rocks start falling from the sky and armed soldiers followed by cavaliers start flooding from every directions.

Nobody expected it, nobody saw you organise it, but your troops where positioned this whole time waiting for the order !

Those soldiers might be your own army, soldiers loaned by the church or requested from a local lord.

If the game master agrees, the attack happen immediately as if you have been preparing it for a long time.

If you are in a situation that makes this surprise attack impossible (in a remote place, far away for the nearest army or without means of communications) the game master may allow you to do this attack in a few days time or not at all.

The attack lasts for a short period of time, after which the soldiers will have to retreat.

With your army's support, you are momentarily considered having the Combat (skirmish) or Combat (battle) Feats.
