Hey! I have a couple quick questions about the scout's skirmish ability.
The description for the scout's skirmish ability is as follows: Skirmish (Ex): A scout relies on mobility to deal extra
damage and improve her defense. She deals an extra
1d6 points of damage on all attacks she makes during
any round in which she moves at least 10 feet. The extra
damage applies only to attacks taken during the scout’s
turn. This extra damage increases by 1d6 for every four
levels gained above 1st (2d6 at 5th, 3d6 at 9th, 4d6 at 13th,
and 5d6 at 17th level).
The extra damage only applies against living creatures
that have a discernible anatomy. Undead, constructs,
oozes, plants, incorporeal creatures, and creatures
immune to extra damage from critical hits are not vulnerable
to this additional damage. The scout must be able to
see the target well eough to pick out a vital spot and must
be able to reach such a spot. Scouts can apply this extra
damage to ranged attacks made while skirmishing, but
only if the target is within 30 feet.
My question is this: Am I correct in thinking that this extra damage can be applied to any action in which a) there is an attack roll made and b) there is damage done? So, obviously, this would not apply to a monk's stunning fist or a wizard's fireball. But it would apply to a sorcerer's scorching ray, so long as all the other criteria are met (target within 30 feet, can be critted, etc.).
Would you say that this is a correct interpretation? And if so...
1. Would you say that this extra damage would appy to magic missiles? Yay or nay?
2. The description says that this extra damage aplies to the attacks (plural) that the scout makes on his current turn. How does that apply to spells where multiple attack rolls are made, such as the previously mentioned scorching ray? Does each ray receive the additional damage?
I realize that all of this is up to the GM to rule on, but I want to understand what the rules are saying so that I can talk to my GM about it (I'm considering multiclassing my warmage in levels of scout).
