While you are not in an enraged state, you gain a bonus to your TN to Be Hit equal to your Fire Ring plus your School Rank. Whenever you enter combat, you may enter an enraged state. While enraged, you ignore Wound penalties for a number of rounds equal to your Earth Ring x 3, plus one round per School Rank. You take the Wounds, but they have no effect on you. Further, you may roll and keep a number of extra dice equal to your School Rank while rolling attack and damage, reflecting your ability to focus your rage into your attacks. Every time you are wounded, you suffer an additional two Wounds. At any time, you may come out of your enraged state by making a Willpower check with a TN of 20. If you calm your rage, you lose all bonuses and penalties that this school imposes while you are enraged. If you calm your rage in the presence of an enemy, you may not become enraged for the rest of the day. At Rank 3, you gain an additional attack per round. At Rank 5, you gain another additional attack per round while in the Full Attack posture.
