With a shout, you command an ally to attack.
At-Will Martial, Weapon Standard Action Melee weapon
Target: One creature
Effect: One of your allies can take a free action to make a melee basic attack against the target. The ally gains a bonus to the damage roll equal to your Intelligence modifier.
so I was thinking. If we had just an action anyone could take (need cool name) that basicly allowed someone to in melee distract an enemy tto allow another ally in melee range with the same target a free attack, but it is an apposed roll. (I would start with Cha vs Wis as the opposed roll) If the roll successeds the target provokes an opp attack from the ally.
then we can give options to classes based on this action.
Bards get a 1st level spell with range 15ft that is the same idea but a save instead of a opposed roll... every level they increase it adds an addtional ally in melee who gets an attack.
Rogues can choose a trick that if they do that action, and the ally hits they deal extra damage equal to the rogues sneak attack dice (or half sneak attack dice I am unsure)
Fighters can choose an option to (warlord build) auto success on the check.
A higher level fighter can choose an option to both attack AND perform one of the following actions: aid attack, or this new distract power...
what would everyone think of this idea? WOuld some of you help me bring this to WotC attention (especialy durring surrvays)
