WOIN Exploit list

180-HammerheadA starship is rotated 180 degrees for free during its movement while continuing its momentum, enabling it to face and fire at pursuers. The ship continues moving in the same direction it was moving initially, and cannot turn until this maneuver is performed again to correct its facing.
Achilles HeelIdentifying a weakness in your target, you pay 2d6 and bypass its soak score. This exploit can only be performed once per target. Alternatively, you may grant this bonus to one ally who must use it within one round.
AimThis is identical to the Feint exploit, but for ranged combat; it grants +1d6 bonus to an attack roll taken in the same turn. The attack action must come immediately after the feinting action. All characters get either the Aim or Feint exploit for free.
Always PreparedYou have a brilliant tactical mind, and are always prepared. You may declare a single action which you took prior to the encounter (even if you didn’t know the encounter was going to take place) which helps you in this exact scenario. This must be an action you were capable of.
AnalyticsStudying your target’s behaviour, you notice a pattern to its actions. You grant all allies within 30’ a +1d6 bonus to attack the target until the start of your next turn. This costs one action
Arm LockWhen you successfully grab a foe, you place your target in a painful armlock. The target gains the Restrained condition, drops any items in that hand, and cannot use that arm until he escapes. You may move at half SPEED, taking your victim with you. If you apply this twice, the attacker gains the second Restrained condition.
BearhugWhen you successfully grab a foe, you grab your target with both arms, squeezing him. You can only bearhug a target of your size category or smaller. The target gains the Restrained condition, and takes 1d6 damage at the start of each of his turns. You may move at half SPEED, taking your victim with you.
Blinding AttackYou throw sand into your opponent’s eyes, cover him in a cloak, pull his helm down, or gash his forehead; on a successful hit your target gains the Blind condition.
Blind ShotWhile in full cover, you may pay 2d6 to take a shot without looking at what you are shooting at or exposing yourself. You use your LUCK attribute instead of your Agility or Intuition for this shot.
Brush OffYou contemptuously brush aside a melee attack, gaining the effect of cover from one melee attack from a creature of your size category or smaller.
Burst Of SpeedYour mount, ship, or vehicle gains a speed boost of 2 hexes or squares for the turn.
ChargeWhen making a melee attack, move up to your speed in a straight line and then attack at the end of it and pay 2d6. You gain +1d6 damage to your attack. You must move at least 10'.
CleaveWhen using STR as your attack attribute, you follow through in one mighty swing, and make an additional attack at -1d6 against an adjacent foe if the first one hits.
CounterhackWhen an opponent is attempting to access your systems using the system override exploit, you may make an immediate opposed LOG check to block the attempt.
Crippling StrikeYou expertly target your opponent’s legs, causing a wound which inflicts the Slowed condition upon him.
Deadly StrikeYou inflict an additional 1d6 damage with a successful hit. For a ranged attack, this is likely a headshot. This can only gain you one bonus damage die.
Death From On HighYou pay 2d6 and drop down on your opponent from at least 5’ above him. This counts as a charge but knocks your opponent prone and does 2d6 extra damage instead of 1d6.
Dive For CoverIf a ranged attack misses you, you may immediately move half your speed and either throw yourself prone or get behind cover if it is in range. This is an immediate reaction.
DodgeYou may use a reaction to dodge one attack you are aware of, as long as you are not in cover. State your intention before the attack roll. The attacker suffers a -2d6 penalty for that attack.
Double TapOnce per turn you may fire two quick shots at your target at the cost of just one action, paying 2d6.
Draw A BeadYou do not pay any penalty for firing into melee, as long as your target is at least 10’ away from you.
e-DefenderYour starship gains +4 e-DEFENSE. This does not stack with additional e-Defenders.
Evasive ActionYou use your action to perform a series of evasive maneuvers which grant your ship +4 DEFENSE until the start of your next turn.
Expert DisarmWhen you use a Called Shot to disarm a target, you do not have to pay the 2d6.
FeintThis is identical to the Aim exploit, but for melee combat; it grants +1d6 bonus to an attack roll taken in the same turn. The attack action must come immediately after the feinting action. All characters get either the Aim or Feint exploit for free.
Flying KickYou move up to your speed and issue a flying kick at the end of it, dealing your martial arts damage with a bonus 1d6 damage.
High Energy TurnThe pilot uses FTL energy to force a ship into any emergency facing. It requires an AGI check equal to 10 + the ship’s class. Failure inflicts 1d6 damage to the ship’s SS per ship class. Success allows the pilot to face the ship in any direction he wishes.
Hunker DownCover grants you one extra die of cover.
Jury-rigYou modify a weapon (yours or an adjacent ally’s) to either increase its range by 50% or its damage by +1d6 until the start of your next turn.
KnockbackWhen you use a Called Shot to move a target, you do not have to pay the 2d6; however, for each 1d6 you choose to pay, the target is pushed one extra square.
KnockdownWhen you use a Called Shot to knock a target prone, you do not have to pay the 2d6; additionally, the target gains the Downed condition (making it unable to stand until that condition has been shaken off).
LeadershipLeadership (requires CHA 8+). You are able to donate one or more of your available LUC dice to another character as a free reaction to their attempting an attribute check. You must declare this before they roll the dice.
Lucky EscapeYou may avoid all damage from one attack as a free reaction. You can only do this once per day.
Opportunist StompYou can stomp on an adjacent prone opponent as a free action. This is an unarmed attack and uses your natural damage value.

PiledriverYou grab your opponent, lift him, and then drop to the ground, driving his head into the ground. Both you and your opponent end up prone. The exploit costs 2d6 and, if successful, the target takes double damage and gains the Dazed condition.
Predictive ReflexesYou are good at reading the situation. You gain a permanent +1d6 bonus to your INITIATIVE checks.
ProtectorYou can take an attack meant for an adjacent ally. If the attack hits your ally, you take the damage instead. If you have a shield, the ally also benefits from your shield’s defense bonus.

Quick MountYou can mount or dismount from a horse, other mount, or motorcycle, as a free action.
QuickdrawIf you are disarmed, you may immediately draw another weapon as an immediate reaction as long as you have one available.
QuickstepYou can move 5’ as a free action.
Reckless ActYou gain +1d6 to ranged attacks as long as you are not concealed, in cover, or using a shield. If you use Dodge, or any other exploit which protects you, you lose this bonus for one minute.
Reinforce ShieldUntil the start of your next turn, one shield (forward, aft, port, or starboard). becomes reinforced. It gains +2 SOAK.
Relativity CorkscrewThis complex maneuver uses FTL speeds, time dilation, and high-level calculations to gain a temporal advantage in starship combat. An FTL drive is necessary. One action is used to perform the relativity corkscrew, but the ship gains three actions in return. However, this is a dangerous maneuver and requires a Strenuous [25] LOG check to accomplish. It cannot be performed again until at least one hour has been spent maintaining the FTL engines.
RicochetYou can pay 4d6 to “bounce” a ranged attack off of one surface in order to hit a target to whom you would not normally have line of sight. This does not negate the target’s cover bonuses; it merely creates a line of sight to a target where there previously was none.
Roll With ItBy voluntarily falling prone, you reduce damage by 2d6. You cannot use any instant-stand exploits in combination with this exploit.
ScattershotWhen using a shotgun, you can attack two adjacent targets within 15’ of you with a single attack action.
SidestepWhen charged by an attacker, you casually step aside, causing him to rush past you. If the attacker’s attack misses, he continues onwards in a straight line to the extent of his movement, unless something blocks his way. If he collides with a solid object, he takes 1d6 blunt damage.
Spinning KickA quick turn and your foot lashes out to strike your opponent. This attack is a free action. You do your normal unarmed damage
SprayWhen using a weapon with the auto trait you may spend all your actions to spray a 30’ cone, making one attack against every target not in cover within the cone. Make one attack roll and apply it to the RANGED DEFENSE of all within that area.
StrafeWhen using a weapon with the auto trait you may, as a single action, spray an area 15’ x 15’ with fire. Everyone in that area takes 1d6 damage of the appropriate type. This is the only attack you can make with this weapon this turn.
System OverideYou remotely access another ship’s control computer, and briefly take a system offline with a LOG vs E-DEFENCE attack. One shield facing, or one weapon, can be deactivated until the beginning of the target ship’s next turn, at which point it is automatically reactivated.
Systems UpgradeChoose one of the Android's modification exploits, such as Wheels, Armor, or Compute. You gain that exploit.
Target EnginesYou can choose to target an enemy ship’s engines by paying 2d6. Attacks to the engines directly reduce their power output instead of damaging superstructure (and consequently affect the ship’s speed or FTL capability).
TauntYou taunt your target, enraging it, and make a CHA vs. Mental Defense attack. If successful, the target focuses all its attacks on you until the start of your next turn.
ThrowWhen you use a Called Shot to knock a target prone, you also move the target two squares and do your unarmed damage.
Torpedo SpreadMultiple torpedoes can be fired in a spread which affects a wide area of effect. For each 1d6 paid, one hex within range is affected; all affected hexes automatically do 1d6 damage of the appropriate type to any vessels in them.
TripWhen you use a Called Shot to knock a target prone, you do not have to pay the 2d6; additionally, the target gains the Downed condition (making it unable to stand until that condition has been shaken off). You still do your normal attack damage. Additionally, if you are a smaller size category than your target, you gain +1d6 to your attack.
UtilikitYou are able to turn one device into another device of equal value or lower. For example, you can modulate your scanner to use as a phaser, or enable your laser knife to operate as a lock pick. The device only functions in this way for a single action before becoming permanently useless. It takes 10 minutes to make the change.
Warp ManeuverA very dangerous maneuver, you use your ship’s FTL capability to reposition your ship on the battlemap. You can move to any location to which you have direct line-of-sight, but your resultant facing is randomized (roll 1d6). This takes your ship’s FTL engines offline, and they require an hour to repair.
Whirlwind FrenzyYou attack all adjacent targets, but only do 1d6 damage to each. You must still make an attack roll against each target. Any targets you hit are pushed back one square, clearing a space around you.
WingoverTo perform the maneuver, the pilot must make an AGI (piloting) check with a difficulty of 10 + the ship's current speed. If successful, the maneuver is performed and the ship takes 1 SS damage; if unsuccessful, the maneuver is not performed, and the ship takes 1d6 SS damage (although this cannot reduce it to below 1 SS).
Adrenal DashYou use psionic energy to gain a burst of speed, dashing up to twice your SPEED.
AdrenalizeYou can channel positive energy into somebody, granting them a +1d6 die bonus per 4 PP to all physical attribute checks for one minute. This process is draining, however, and causes you 1d6 psionic damage for each 1d6 bonus you grant.
BiofeedbackYou psychically harden your skin, gaining natural SOAK 1 +1 per PP until your next turn.
Psychic HealingYou can heal 1d6 per 6 PP HEALTH by touch. Any given creature can only benefit from this power once per day.

RetrocognitionYou can see into the past up to 1 day per PP until your next turn. Your view is of your current location as though you were there at the time.
ClairaudienceYou can hear a location you have seen before until your next turn. You hear it as though you were physically present.
ClairvoyanceYou can see and hear a location you have seen before until your next turn. You see it as though you were physically present, and do not gain additional sight powers (so if it is dark there, you do not gain darksight).

CannibilizeYou are able to recover psionic energy by drawing from your body’s other energy reserves. Choose any number of d6s and roll them; you gain that much psionic energy, but take the same amount of damage.
Fast RecoveryYou recover twice as much psionic energy during your daily meditation. This acts as a trait and simply modifies your psionic recovery with no action required.

MindwipeYou are able to erase your target’s memory as far back as 1 hour per PP. Make a PSI vs. MENTAL DEFENSE attack.
Perception FilterYou render yourself hard to notice with a telepathic effect which causes others to simply ignore you.

ArtificerYou are able to create magical items using the procedures outlined in O.L.D.

JewellerYou gain one additional Magic Point out of a gemstone.
Magical ReservoirYou gain 2d6 extra Magic Points to add to your total number of Magic Points. This does not affect the maximum amount of Magic Points you can invest in a single spell. You can take this exploit multiple times; each time you do, you gain an additional 2d6 MP.

*****MARTIAL ARTS*****

You are as indomitable as a mountain, able to bear incredible weight, make parts of your body invulnerable, and strike with so great a focus and force that nearly any object will shatter under your blows. Your opponents learn that you are well suited to suffer a flurry of strikes, and to fear the power of your own.

Weifeng (Wind) StanceWhen using your Chi you become lighter, faster, and fleeter than any normal human could ever be, able to move with the silence of a subtle gust of wind, run across water and tree branches, dash with incredible speed, and dodge so quickly as to become a blur.

Phanyu (Lightning) StanceYour fists and feet are like lightning, and when using Chi you strike your enemies in the blink of an eye with explosive force.

Your opponents are disturbed by your cerebral fortitude and undone by their own mental assaults.
