sandra [You can hurt the monster]
Line 9: Line 9:
 If the monster goes to 0 or lower HP throuh your maneuvering (see below), you can kill it. The DM is supposed to say "You can kill her" or "You can kill the skeleton" or whatever and that's your chance to do it. It doesn't cost any extra actions, reactions, bonus actions etc. You've already paid the actions through your maneuvering and that has granted you this golden opportunity. If the monster goes to 0 or lower HP throuh your maneuvering (see below), you can kill it.

-Say how you kill the monster, in a way that's consistent with your maneuvering, and it is dead. For example, burn it if you've been maneuvering against it with fire magic, or pierce it if you've been maneuvering against it with archery.+Say how you kill the monster, and it is dead. A pro tip is to use a similar ability that you've been using when maneuvering; for example, burn it if you've been maneuvering against it with fire magic, or pierce it if you've been maneuvering against it with archery. But this "killing blow" is a separate blow. It doesn't cost any actions but it is still a good old chop!

 that's when you can hurt, harm or wound it. Again, it doesn't cost any extra actions, reactions, bonus actions etc. Hurting and killing is beyond time and space; you've created a window of opportunity which you can then seize. A monster can't be both hurt and killed in the same blow; killing them bypasses the step where they are hurt. that's when you can hurt, harm or wound it.

 +Same as with the killing blow; you can use a similar ability as you've been using for maneuvering but it's a separate blow; a harming blow. See examples below♥

 In other words, maneuvering is what costs actions and ticks down HP; which in turn will hopefully work you towards the chance to strike for real. In other words, maneuvering is what costs actions and ticks down HP; which in turn will hopefully work you towards the chance to strike for real.
