Perk: Clinch Casting

I created this perk for the same aborted elf gladiator character as the Spell-Dazzle Strike technique. The idea is that she would use Armed Grapple to perform Arm Locks and Choke Holds with her enchanted Staff sticks, and then cast spells like Deathtouch through them. This perk would get around the debilitating effects on spellcasting from being in a grapple.

Clinch Casting†

You have practiced casting a single Melee spell while grappling. You must specialize by Melee spell. While grappling, you may take the Concentrate maneuver to cast that spell only. The contact of the grapple removes the need for a Melee attack roll; the spell immediately "discharges" and affects the target normally.
