Chthonic Grip {{#set:Type=General}} Summary::You can initiate grapples with your Chthonic Serpent weapons. Prerequisites: [[Prerequisite::Blade Meditation (Chthonic Serpent)]], [[Prerequisite::Any two of Binding Constrictor]], [[Prerequisite::Boa Strike]], [[Prerequisite::Choking Python]], [[Prerequisite::or Anaconda Crush]]Benefit: You may initiate a Grapple with any of the weapons associated with the Chthonic Serpent discipline. Doing so requires a successful melee attack (not touch attack), followed by a successful Grapple check, but does not provoke an attack of opportunity and does not require that you move into your enemy's space. Grappling in this fashion is identical to using the Binding Constrictor maneuver.

When using Binding Constrictor, Boa Strike, Choking Python, or Anaconda Crush, these maneuvers deal an extra +2d6 constricting damage.Special: Chthonic Grip can be used in place of Improved Grapple to qualify for a feat, prestige class, or other special ability. If you already have Improved Grapple when you select Chthonic Grip, you can choose to lose the Improved Grapple feat and gain a new feat in its place. You must meet the prerequisite for the new feat.
