Arena Acting

The Acting proficiency allows the gladiator to feign a weakness in the arena to trick his opponent. If the check is successful, he has shown a weakness he does not really possess. For example, he could convince an enemy that his left side is overexposed, or that his weapons are unfamiliar in his hands. More often than not, these tricks succeed. If the enemy attack against the gladiator's assumed weakness, the PC attacks his foe with a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls. These reflect the surprise the target feels upon realizing he has been duped.

Arena Acting can work only once against any given opponent. Thereafter, the enemy is far more cautious in his attacks.
