Didn't See You There! Anytime the sumpter realigns its body with its head, and SM 0 or smaller creatures in the way are shoved. They may defend normally. Success means they duck or dodge around the sumpter, but failure moves them with the sumpter however far is necessary for the realignment to take place. If this results in him getting knocked down, he must Dodge at -3 to avoid also being trampled for 1d-2 crushing damage as large area injury!
