Bash is an offensive maneuver where you throw yourself into an opponent in
an attempt to cause blunt damage. Successful bashes may also put the target
temporarily into a compromised position, allowing you to do more damage.
Since bash involves using the momentum of your own body, it can be difficult
to get back into fighting position, and the character will be lagged for
short time after bashing.
One of the drawbacks of bash is that in using your own body, you often
inflict damage upon yourself. Also, highly skilled defenders may avoid your
attack and use the opportunity to trip or counterattack. Higher dexterity
helps you strike the target more squarely, so the maximum amount of force
Bashing works best when you use a shield, as it partially protects you
from damage. Shields with damroll will deal extra damage as well. Certain
magical shields can also deal elemental damage and may even allow you to
bash ethereal creatures. Without a shield, an outer cloak or coat that
is specially enchanted will allow you to bash ethereal entities.
