Level 10

Hail of Arrows: By spending 4 points worth of effects on a successful Maneuver action in a Kill or Drive Off conflict, the archer may unleash a Hail of Arrows, inflicting one hit point of damage to the archer’s opponent and one hit point of damage to each person or creature that helped the archer’s opponent on that action. You may use Hail of Arrows once per conflict—it seriously depletes your ammunition.
