Assassinate: Rules Change

Postby Tim-Director » Fri May 19, 2017 3:05 pm

The Assassinate skill has been changed.

The effect is now:

Assassinate
Target instantly dies. A physical strike delivering this effect must hit the torso of the target. The only defenses to an Assassinate are a Divine Shield or a skill that specifically resists or reduces Assassinate. Surgery may be attempted, but the chance of success is greatly reduced. If a Physician examines you, your status is “Assassinated.”


To clarify, the Assassinated target no longer turns instantly into a Spirit, and can now be Spirit Communed. Additionally, Surgery may be performed on an Assassinated body, and the Life effect will work.

The Surgery rules changes are included in the Physician Vocation packet.

Since you need to hit the torso, can you physically block it with a shield or weapon to not die?

Yep!

The "Only defenses" comment specifically means you can't use an ability to resist a successful hit.

But you can block the assassinate attempt with a shield or weapon, right?
