About
There is my no means a consensus as to what to call these damn skills. Are they inbars? Are the piked Stalders? Can we come up with a better name that’s none of those things? I don’t have a particular preference, though I do wish we could all settle on one.

The piked stalder-style elements are all worth one tenth more than their corresponding elements in the toe-on, stalder, and clear-hip families, rendering them exceptionally valuable for those who can do them. Even this non-turning version (therefore not eligible for connection bonus) is no less popular than the turning versions because, hey, it’s a D skill.
