Cruel Shrapnel Cascade
Black Rain (Strike)
Level: Level::6
Prerequisite: Two Black Rain maneuvers
Initiation Action: 1 standard action
Range: Firearm attack
Target: One creature
Duration: 5 rounds
Saving Throw: Fortitude negates

With a flick of his wrist and a cruel gaze, a gunslinger can casually dispense mutilation, razing his foe’s flesh with bullets that splinter into shards of lead.

As part of this maneuver, you make a single ranged attack with a firearm or ray weapon against an opponent. If the attack hits, the foe hit must make a Fortitude save, DC 16 + your highest mental ability score, or suffer one of the following effects, based on which body part you targets:

  • Arms: Your bullet shreds the foe’s arm muscles, rendering it almost useless. They take 4 Strength damage, and temporarily lose the use of one of their arms, dropping whatever they are holding in it at the time.
  • Legs: Your bullet scatters shrapnel throughout your foe’s legs, leaving them all but unable to stand. They take 4 Dexterity damage and suffer a -10 ft. penalty to all movement forms and a -10 penalty on all Balance, Climb, Jump, Swim, and Tumble checks.
  • Vitals: Your bullet pulps your foe’s innards, leaving them a bleeding, haggard wreck. They take 2 Constitution damage and take 1d12 damage each subsequent round.

The additional effects last for 5 rounds. Healing the ability damage also ends the effects, but a Heal check or normal magical healing cannot end them. Some foes may not be affected by certain called shots. A creature lacking arms, tentacles, claws, or similar appendages cannot be affected by an arms shot; a creature lacking any legs, wings, fins, or similar propulsive appendages cannot be affected by a legs shot, and creature lacking a discernible anatomy (any creature immune to sneak attack damage) is immune to a vitals shot.
