When a character attacks this character with a Melee Attack, after the attack is resolved, this character may immediately attack that character with a free unarmed Melee Attack, rolling one red die instead of their normal dice.


When using this skill, a character ignores penalties from unarmed attacks (see page 9) and cannot benefit from Melee Attack bonuses from weapons. A counterattack is a Melee Attack resolved after the first attack (whether damage was dealt or not) and can be performed only if the character with this skill survives the first attack.
