Karmic Strike

( Oriental Adventures, p. 63)


You have learned to strike when your opponent is most vulnerable: at the same instant your opponent strikes you. This feat is also called ai uchi.


Dodge (PH) , DEX 13,


You can make an attack of opportunity against an opponent that hits you in melee. You take a -4 penalty to your Armor Class, in exchange for the ability to make an attack of opportunity against any creature that makes a successful melee attack roll or melee touch attack roll against you. The opponent that hits you must be in your threatened area, and this feat does not grant you more attacks of opportunity than you are normally allowed in a round. If you hit with your attack of opportunity, you and your opponent deal and take damage simultaneously. You specify on your turn that you are activating this feat, and the change to your Armor Class and your ability to make a karmic strike last until your next turn.
