Rank: Mirumoto Bushi 2
Cost: 2
Special: Must have Willpower and Void 3
Effect: The kata is useable with the daisho. The practitioner must completely focus on
his strike, loosing all view of his/her surroundings. The result is that distracting the
samurai from his/her action is difficult (increasing the TN of any feint, magical or normal
attempt to mentally distract him from his strike by 15), but the samurai is completely
unaware to anything outside of 6 feet around him/her. The samurais TN increases by 5
in melee and decreases the TN by 10 for ranged attacks.

Effect: The kata must employ cutting weapons to function. The practitioner must assume

TN by 10 for one targeted opponent, until the practitioner gives the final strike. The
samurai then may dance around his/her opponent, earning a + 5 to his/her Attack roll for
every turn the practitioner dances, (maximum + 15) until the strike is made. If the attack
is successful by more than 5 points, the strike cuts legs tendons and the opponent cannot
stand up until healed, additionally the practitioners TN to be hit is reduced by 20 for
others opponents. Opponents that have already seen this kata are immune to its effects.
