Finesse skills & ranged weapons

Postby Solapse » Sun Oct 02, 2016 7:19 pm

I see that there are a few Finesse skills that don't specify if they can be used with Projectile weapons, can the skills be clarified?

Thanks!

Let me rephrase the question then.

Can it be assumed that offensive finesse skills can be used with ranged/projectile weapons unless it is explicitly stated in the skill's description that it can only be used with melee or specific melee weapon(s)?

In general, yes.

But take a look at the skills in the Rulebook. They should have a requirement listed. If there is none, then there is no weapon use requirement.

For example:
Archery, Strongbow
Cost: 3 SP / 1 AP
Allows an archer to cause Crushing damage with a single arrow.

Archery, Sure-Shot
Cost: 3 SP / 1 AP
Allows an archer to cause Body damage with a single arrow.

Piercing Strike
Cost: 3 SP / 1 AP
Piercing Strike allows a character to deliver a strike through a foe’s defenses which deals Body damage instead of normal damage. This must be delivered by a sword, dagger, spear, or other pointed weapon. This skill can be stacked with other skills.

Precision Strike
Cost: 5 SP / 1 AP
Precision Strike allows a character to attack for 2 additional points of damage with edged or projectile weapons.

Waylay, Basic
Cost: 5 SP, 1 AP
Waylay allows a character to deliver the "Waylay" effect with an attack from behind by striking the target on the back with surprise between the shoulder blades with a short weapon.

Can the archery skills be used with a longbore bombard?
