Hamstring Attack

(Tome of Battle: The Book of Nine Swords, p. 88)

Tiger Claw (Strike)
Level: Swordsage 7 (Three Tiger Claw maneuvers), Warblade 7 (Three Tiger Claw maneuvers),
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Melee attack
Target: One creature
Duration: 1 minute
Saving Throw: Fortitude half

You slice into your opponent?s legs, leaving him hobbled and stumbling about.

As part of this maneuver, you make a single melee attack. If this attack hits, it deals damage as normal. In addition, the target takes 1d8 points of Dexterity damage and a ?10-foot penalty to speed for 1 minute. A successful Fortitude save (DC 17 + your Str modifier) halves both the Dexterity damage and the
speed penalty.
