Benefit: When an opponent attacks you with a slash, chop or a bludgeon attack, and your Active Defense is successful, you may then spend one or more MP to immediately counterattack with a thrusting-attack only, and your attack applies against their original Attack die-roll. If you only attack with one die they may only defend with that original die roll value. You may throw in more dice for your counter, but if you spend more than one MP they may also throw in additional Active Defense dice to defend with (if they have any). Of course, if they are out of dice they do not have this option… This is useful in cases where your opponent rolled low in their attack.
