Special Combat Maneuvers

At "somewhat frail" bond strength, two new attack maneuvers are granted. "Sword Slap" and "Brush". These require that a medium-sized sword (e.g. a katana, or longsword) be wielded, and cannot be used with any other type of weapon, including larger or smaller swords. They can be executed via the 'perform' command or allowed to fire randomly.

These attacks also inherit the sword's damage type (if any).

   Perform Brush
   Usage: perform brush [at <target>]
   A sweeping sword attack inspired by the movements of the paintbrush.
   Perform Sword Slap
   Usage: perform sword slap [at <target>]
   Slap a foe with the flat of the blade of a sword, to cause pain and keep them off balance.

At "fairly healthy", a new attack maneuver "Cleave" is granted.

   Perform Cleave
   Usage: perform cleave [at <target>]
   Make a powerful strike at a target with a sword, with the intention not only of cutting but cutting through the target.

At "robust"

   Perform Long Thrust
   Usage: perform long thrust [at <target>]
   Quickly execute a thrust with extended reach, using a sword.

At "deep"

   Perform Sable Lash
   Usage: perform sable lash [at <target>]
   A blindingly fast sword attack that relies on speed and surprise to get past an opponents defenses.

At late "intimate" or early "nearly complete"

   Perform Master Stroke
   Usage: perform master stroke [at <target>]
   The perfect sword stroke, made gradually but with flawless timing, striking at the point of maximum vulnerability.
