The Twelve Scrolls Of Hantei
Child of Storm and Fire
Ignore 6 points of Reduction,
4 from Hida
2 from rank 3 Heavy Weapons
Super Hida Mode!
Ignore all penalties and effects of Wound Ranks, and you also gain a +4k2 bonus to all physical attack and damage rolls for as many rounds as your earth ring for a skirmish.
Hida was a warrior of unmatched strength and endurance,
who relied on that to defeat all foes, never backing down from
any of them, even his own Taint-corrupted son. With Hida
watching over you, your blows strike hard and true – you
gain +1k0 to all damage rolls and may ignore 4 points of an
enemy’s Reduction, regardless of what weapon you are using.
Further, any Crab who fight alongside you in a skirmish are
inspired by the spirit of Hida which infuses your frame, and
gain +1 bonus Void point (if they do not use this Void point
by the end of the skirmish, it is lost).
Demands: Any Round that at least one fellow Crab is
wounded within your sight, you must suffer 1 Wound in sympathy.
(This does not increase if multiple Crab are wounded
in the same Round.) This Wound ignores Reduction and any
other effects which would otherwise negate damage. However,
you can voluntarily choose not to suffer the Wound. If you
ever refuse to suffer these Wounds, or if you ever voluntarily
retreat from a fight with a creature of the Shadowlands, Hida
will abandon you.
