Named Man

Prerequisites: Power Attack, Melee Combat, must have been given a name by another Named Man.
XP Cost: 500

Among the tribes and clans of the Outremer, the Bloodlands, and The High Places every warrior dreams of earning his Name. It is a sign of respect and a testament to their bravery and fighting prowess. The sagas are filled with the legends of men like "Bones" Brannok, Caul Ironeye, and Valgard the Red. A nameless man is nothing, and when he dies Straasha will not carry their souls to the Land of the Dead, but will consign them to the Sea of Souls. A named man is respected in life for his bravery and in death for his services to the God of the Dead.

Starting Ability

As a full-round action, a named man may make a wide swing attack, a lunge attack, or a counter-flank attack, which allows him to target multiple squares with a single blow. A wide swing attack targets a square and the two squares on either side of it, a lunge attack targets a square and the square behind it (from the point of view of the named man), and a counter-flank attack targets a square and the corresponding square on the opposite side of the named man making the attack. The named man makes one attack roll at his full attack bonus, and uses that result for any and all targets in the affected squares.
