[skill] Riposte Succeeds Untrained

Post by Elisabeth » Wed Feb 21, 2018 11:31 pm

Hello:

This one is pretty much as simple as the subject line. I somehow managed to successfully riposte today without ever having trained the skill. I double-checked just to be sure, and Liza definitely does not know it.
A bandit cleric begins to chant.
A bandit cleric approaches you and prepares to engage you in combat!
Reginald, a pure white Cormyrean destrier joins the battle!


You parry a bandit cleric's attack.
You riposte a bandit cleric's attack.
Your pierce nearly bisects a bandit cleric's left leg.
a bandit cleric has several traumatic wounds.
A bandit cleric gets distracted and stops chanting.


Your pierce nearly bisects a bandit cleric's head.
A bandit cleric is stunned, but will probably recover.
Thanks for reading.

Anyone else see evidence of this?
A goblin, a trickster, a warrior? A nameless terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. A most feared being in all the cosmos. Nothing could stop, hold, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.

I have not seen that, but Harroghty can riposte with a bow (which is kind of a piercing weapon, but not the same really).
