School Techniques (Kaiu Engineer/2)

Rank 1 The Kaiu Method You gain a bonus of +1k0 when making any School Skill Roll. When spending a Void Point to augment a School Skill Roll, you gain a bonus of +2k2 instead of +1k1.
Rank 2 The Path of Stone When constructing any large structure (temple-sized or larger), you may make an Engineering Skill Roll at TN 25 to add an additional number of Wounds to the structure equal to your School Rank x 100. Also, when commanding a siege engine, you may re-roll once any of the siege engine’s damage dice that roll below your School Rank.

Inheritance: Kaiu Armor: (Tetsu-Dou) BoE p26, also invested 4 Karma Points into awakened Armor -7 pts
Large You gain a bonus of +1k0 to the total of all Damage Rolls for any large melee weapon. – 2 pts
Tactician When making a roll on the Mass Battle Table, you may increase or decrease your result by 5. – 3 pts
Hands of Stone +0k1 to unarmed damage rolls – 5 pts
Ally: Bayushi Endokan Influence: 2, Devotion: 1 0 pts
Ancestor: Kaiu Kaiu’s guidance grants you a +3k1 bonus (instead of +1k1) any time you spend a Void Point on a Craft or Engineering skill roll. In addition, once per game year you may call on Kaiu’s inspiration and roll an appropriate Craft skill at TN 50 to create a minor awakened nemuranai. The initial powers of this magical item are chosen by the GM, but should start out weak (e.g. +1k0 to skills or damage rolls, for example) until the spirits within the item grow stronger over time. – 9 pts
Great Destiny Once per session, when you suffer Wounds that would kill you, you are reduced to a single Wound remaining instead. This will only happen once per session, as there are limits to the extent that the Heavens will intervene in mortal affairs. – 0 pts (per Campaign Notes)
Bad Fortune: Unknown Enemy Someone somewhere in another Clan hates you, and wishes to see you dead. You have no idea who they are or why they hate you, but you will very soon. + 3 pts
Haunted: Kaiu You must show all due deference and respect to your ancestor, and do your best to live up to his (or her) expectations. If you fail to do so, your ancestor’s disapproval will bring bad fortune upon you: so long as your ancestor remains angry, once per session one of your die rolls (chosen by the GM) will suffer a –1k1 penalty. + 3 pts
Hostage: Kenru Family Although you are treated respectfully and as a guest in the lands of another Clan, you are not permitted to leave without escort and, should war break out between your Clan and your hosts, your life will be forfeit. + 3 pts
Sworn Enemy: Unknown Enemy (Karmic Nemesis) + 6 pts
