Dragon Age: Whispers of the Past
Requirement: You must have Constitution and Dexterity 3 or higher and the Dual Weapon Style (Journeyman).
Novice: You can protect an ally with the tactical use of your body. Choose an ally and enter Bodyguard mode with an activate action. When this ally is adjacent to you, they gain a +2 to their Armor Rating. However, each time your ally takes non-magic damage, you take 2 points of penetrating damage. You can choose to switch your protection to a different ally with a free action. You can leave Bodyguard mode with a free action.
Journeyman: The combat stunts Lightning Attack and Dual Strike cost an extra stunt point when used against your protected ally (so 4 SP for Lightning Attack and 5 SP for Dual Strike).
Master: Those who attack your charge suffer the consequences. When you are in Bodyguard mode and an opponent successfully hits or damages your protected ally, you can immediately attack that opponent (moving up to your speed to get adjacent if necessary) as a minor action, generating stunt points as usual. You may only do this once per round. After the attack, the normal initiative order resumes. This retaliation does count as part of your turn.
