TECHNIQUES
RANK 1: THE FALCON’S EYES
You gain one Free Raise per School Rank on all your Perception rolls. In addition, you may perceive any invisible spirits within your range of vision by making a Raw Perception Roll at a TN of the spirit’s Air Ring x 5. Finally, you may add your Water Ring to the result of all your attack and damage rolls.

RANK 2: THE FALCON TAKES FLIGHT
You begin to understand the swift movements of the falcon. You may add double your Perception to the result of all your Initiative rolls. You gain one Free Raise per rank of Perception on any attack roll against an opponent with lower Initiative.

RANK 3: THE FALCON’S WINGS
You gain an additional attack per round. You may add double your Water Ring to the result of all your attack and damage rolls (replacing the bonus gained at Rank 1).

RANK 4: VIGILANT AND STRONG
At this Rank, you no longer need to make a Perception roll to notice invisible spirits. You may perceive any invisible creature within your range of vision by making a Raw Perception Roll at a TN of the creature’s Air Ring x 5. Also, you may make a Contested Perception roll against the Air Ring of any opponent within 30´ to perceive him despite any darkness or blinding effects that may hamper your vision. You must be aware of the opponent’s existence to use this ability. Finally, you may add triple your Perception to the result of all your Initiative rolls (replacing the bonus gained at Rank 2).

RANK 5: CLAWS OF THE FALCON
By spending a Void Point, you can select one opponent and harm him normally for the duration of the skirmish, ignoring any special invulnerabilities or Carapace rating. This applies only to your melee attacks. Additionally, you may add triple your Water Ring to the result of all your attack and damage rolls (replacing the bonus gained at Rank 3).
