The character must declare that she is using this attack before she makes her attack roll (thus, a failed attack roll ruins the attempt), and the attempt consumes two attack actions. The character’s threat range on a Cleave improves to 19-20. Unlike a normal critical hit, Cleave deals damage directly to the target’s Wound Points. Cleave does not bypass armor, so touch attacks cannot benefit from this attack.

Prerequisite: Combat Martial Arts

Special: Cleave can be used for any melee attack, including unarmed strikes.
