-**Check:** You can walk on a precarious surface. A successful check lets you move at one-half your speed along the surface as a move action. A failure indicates that you spend your move action keeping your bal-ance ​and do not move. A failure by 5 or more indicates that you fall. The DC depends on the conditions, as detailed below: +**Check:** You can walk on a precarious surface. A successful check lets you move at one-half your speed along the surface as a move action.

-**Accelerated Movement:** You can try to move across a precarious surface more quick-ly ​by taking a –5 penalty on your Balance check.

-**Resist Zero-G Bull Rush:** Normally, a successful Bull Rush in zero-g results in the target being moved 10 feet, as opposed to 5 feet, for every 5 points by which the at-tacker’s Strength check exceeds the defender’s. However, the defender may make a Balance check (opposed by the attacker’s Balance or Dexterity check) in order to reduce the Bull Rush movement to the normal 5 feet per 5 points. This check is made as a free action, in reaction to the attacker’s successful Bull Rush.+**Resist Zero-G Bull Rush:** Normally, a successful Bull Rush in zero-g results in the target being moved 10 feet, as opposed to 5 feet, for every 5 points by which the attacker’s Strength check exceeds the defender’s.
