The Rise of Orochi
Mariko Shugenja School
Benefit: +1 Willpower
Skills: Calligraphy (Cipher), Hunting, Lore yokai, Lore Spellcraft, Stealth, any one skill
Outfit: Robes, Wakizashi, Knife, Scroll Satchel, Traveling pack, 3 Ryo
Technique: Guardian of Spirit and Flesh – Just as Onigumo could create countless children and spawn, so can Mariko’s Shugenja school create guardians to help protect them. These guardians can be visible or invisible, forms of spirit, or forms of flesh. They typically cannot speak, and have no skills, and can take no actions other then the guard action for their Shugenja.
These guardians have wounds equal to your earth ring minus 1, and armor TN based on your Void ring and cannot be healed normally. At anytime the shugenja may spend a void point as a complex action and have the guardian heal Void keep void wounds.
