School Techniques

Mirumoto Bushi

WAY OF THE DRAGON
When wielding a katana in your main hand and a wakizashi in your off hand, you suffer no penalties of any kind for dual wielding, and you gain a bonus of your School Rank to your Armor TN (this is cumulative with the normal bonus for wielding two weapons). Additionally, when you are targeted with a spell, you may raise or lower the TN of that spell’s Spellcasting Roll by 5.

THE CALM IN MIDST OF THUNDER
While you assume the Center Stance, you gain a bonus to the total of your Iaijutsu rolls equal to your Kenjutsu Skill Rank.

THE FALCON’S CLAW
You may attack as a Simple action when using weapons with the Samurai keyword, knives, or unarmed attacks. When striking an opponent with a higher Initiative than you, you must make two Raises in order to get the effects of one. However, when striking an opponent with a lower Initiative than you, you gain a number of Free Raises equal to half your Fire Ring (rounded down).

SOUL OF PROMISE
The Topaz Champion is among the best and brightest of each generation. When you advance in insight Rank and into this Path, you gain the Technique it would normally replace. You also gain a number of bonus Void Points per day equal to your highest Ring. You may spend these just like normal Void Points (with all the normal restrictions), but they may only be used to enhance your School Skill Rolls.

FURIOUS RETALIATION
During the Reactions Stage of Combat, you may choose one opponent who made or attempted an attack
against you this Round. During your next Turn, you gain a bonus of +3k0 to all attack rolls against that target.

HEART OF THE DRAGON
Masters of the Mirumoto Bushi School seem to strike from everywhere at once. If you attack twice in the same Turn while you are wielding a katana in your main hand and a wakizashi in your off hand, you may make one additional attack with your off hand as a Free Action.

THE SILENCE OF TWO STRIKES
The Swordmaster’s connection to his blades is nearly supernatural, allowing him to tune out the rest of the world. While wielding a katana in your main hand and a wakizashi in your off hand, you may spend Void Points twice per Turn.

REFLEXES 5 - AGILITY 4 PERCEPTION 3
Initiative: 5k5 Attack: claw/beak 6k4 (Simple)

Skills: Hunting (Tracking) 4, Intimidation 2

Special Abilities:

  • Swift 5 when flying.
  • Eye Attack: If a falcon inflicts 10 or more
    wounds in a single attack, the target is temporarily
    blinded (due to blood and pain) until
    the injury is treated with Medicine or
    magically healed. If the damage is 20 or
    more Wounds, the falcon has actually destroyed
    the eye (inflicting the Missing Eye
    disadvantage).
Bio:

“There is so much superstition and hypocrisy around that one is afraid even to do the right thing. But if one gives way to fear, even truth will have to be suppressed. The golden rule is to act fearlessly upon what one believes to be right. Fearlessness does not mean arrogance or aggressiveness. That in itself is a sign of fear. Fearlessness presupposes calmness and peace of mind. For this, it is necessary for one to live the way of Bushido. He who has awakened his spirit to the way of Bushido is free from fear. Fear lies in illusions in the mind. Listen always to the still small voice within – commune within by meditation, both moving and sitting still. Practice courage until it becomes who you are. Practice equinimity, which is to experience changes and be unmoved – a mountain of being remains unmoved. When fear is displaced within, ALWAY replace it with Courage. Nature abhors a vacuum.” – Maka Hana
