Burst of Speed
Required Rank: 1
Effects: A Battle-Brother can call on reserves of speed when needed, crossing great distances to close with the foe. Once per game session, a Battle-Brother can perform a Burst of Speed. This ability increases the character’s Agility Bonus by 2 with all the usual associated benefits for a number of Rounds equal to his Rank.
Improvement: At Rank 3 and above Burst of Speed also adds a +10 to all Agility tests based on movement. At Rank 5 the bonus to Agility Bonus increases to +4. At Rank 7 this ability allows the Battle-Brother to ignore the need to make Agility Tests when running or charging in difficult terrain (see page 206).
