A trained soldier can support another trained soldier in battle. Using weapons, body, and a series of feints and distractions, a character may aid an adjacent ally. The ally must also have the Combat Formation Edge. The hero forfeits his own attack and then grants a +1 Attack or +1 Parry to an adjacent ally trained in Combat Formation. This bonus lasts until the hero acts again.
Improved Combat Formation
