We’re considering replacing the swordsman’s Riposte skill with a Shove Attack skill. (Riposte I would replace Punt. Punt and Riposte II would get punted.)
To do a Shove Attack, you would click on an unoccupied space directly or indirectly behind an adjacent monster. The monster will be shoved back to that space, and you’ll move to the monster’s original space and do a sword attack from there. You would get attack bonuses (Full Swing, Press, etc.) based on the new location.
1 - You can only shove humanoids (has or had two legs) and only if they have just 1 h.p.
2 - You cannot shove if there are two monsters between you and the target tile.
3 - You can shove a monster into a pit (where it will fall to its death), but only if there are no other tiles that the monster could be shoved to. (eg. If the 3 tiles behind a monster were a pit, a flame, and another monster, then you could shove the monster into the pit.)
Shove Attack I - Shove with a -2 sword attack
Shove Attack II - Shove with a -1 sword attack
Shove Attack III- Shove with a sword attack
