Combat maneuvers and Aid Other


Rules Questions

Dark Archive

This thread got me thinking.

What combat maneuvers can you use the "aid other" action on?


  • grapple: list in the rules, but I think that it could use more info on multiple.
  • Bull rush: ? but I cannot think of a way.
  • Disarm: ? but I cannot think of a way.
  • Overrun: ? but I cannot think of a way.
  • Sunder: ? but I cannot think of a way.
  • Trip: I could see it working (if flanking especially).
  • Feint: I could see it.
  • Dirty Trick: I could see it for some of them.
  • Drag: I could see it.
  • Reposition: ? but I cannot think of a way.
  • Steal: ? but I cannot think of a way.

Anyone else have thoughts on this?

Mostly I see the aider basically distracting the target.

Bull Rush--the aider moves toward the target (within his square, not actually using a move action) so the target is off balance against the realbull rush coming from the side
Reposition--Handing the target off to the aider to get that extra 5 feet of repositioning distance?
