SNEAKY BASTARD
• A Fighter-Thief has a ‘pool’ of Damage Dice (d4s) equal to their HD.
• When making an Attack distribute any number of these Damage Dice among any number of Nearby targets.
• For each target the Player assigns the Damage Dice, the Player must come up with an exciting and bespoke narration for the Attack.
• Make an Attribute Test for each target to see if they are hit, if so, roll the Damage Dice assigned to them and reduce their HP by that amount.
• If a Fighter-Thief has Moved silently to get behind a Creature, and they are unaware of the Figher-Thief ’s presence, the Fighter-Thief may add their Fighter-Thief ’s Level to that creature's damage.
• The pool of Damage Dice resets at the start of the Figher-Thief's turn.


A DAGGER FOR EVERY OCCASION 
(See TBH 2E pg. 21)
