Hand Checking

Benefits: If you are not using a weapon in your off-hand you may use it to check your opponents weapon when in close range, giving you a special ‘Free Dice’ to any Active Defense rolls any time your opponent attempts a counterattack or counterstroke feat. If you roll a 1 during this Active Defense roll you were automatically hit (in your off hand) regardless of any other defense die you rolled. If you have the MF Limb Destruction or Morstrosse you may make an immediate Opportunity Attack with your off-hand instead of an Active Defense roll.
