The martial artist draws strength from an opponent's Essence and turns that strength against the aggressor. When the martial artist successfully parries or dodges a single attack, she may employ this charm to attempt an immediate counterattack against the attacker using a number of dice equal to her Martial Arts + any extra successes on the dodge or parry. The counterattack may be a strike, throw or sweep.
Feathered Whirlwind Method may be used in conjunction with another charm that allows the character to catch a thrown weapon; in this case, the character may throw the weapon back using a number of dice equal to her Thrown + any extra successes on the roll involved in catching the weapon. In such cases, this charm may be activated in the same turn without a Combo.
This charm is not an action, and does not subtract from the character’s dice pools or affect her actions for the turn. It may not be used in response to a counterattack charm.
