A duelist who has initiative over her opponent can choose to defer her action until her opponent acts. If her opponent attempts to attack, the duelist attempts to step inside his guard and deliver a fast, deadly blow that stops the opponent in her tracks, using her own forward momentum to make the blow more deadly. This attack cannot be parried or dodged, because the opponent is already committed. However, if the Stop Hit fails to incapacitate or knock down the opponent, the duelist cannot dodge or parry the attack.
