The Fate of Old Andrukah
Required Rank: 1
Effects: Storm Wardens often choose to prove their honour and bravery by facing foes in single combat and duelling to the death. Once per combat as a Free Action, a Battle-Brother of the Storm Wardens Chapter may issue a Thunder’s Call against any single enemy which can both see and hear him (though it need not be able to understand his language). As long as the Battle-Brother takes no Actions other than melee attacks against the target or moving him into melee with the target, and none of his allies attack the target, he gains 0) Agility Test to move away.
This ability lasts until either the target is dead or withdraws from combat (i.e. it retreats and combat ends) or the Battle- Brother withdraws from combat.
Improvement: At Rank 3 and above the Battle-Brother’s duelling skills mean that he may re-roll both Parry and Dodge Tests against attacks from the target of his Thunder’s Call. At Rank 5 and above the target’s penalties to attack anyone other than the Storm Warden increase to –20 and the Agility Test to move away becomes Hard (–20). At Rank 7 and above he may issue the Thunder’s Call to a group of foes up to his Rank in number.
