White Crane Form
The character adopts the posture and bearing of the crane - graceful and upright, yet always mindful of danger. She adds her Martial Arts score to all of her dodges. These additional dice may not be used to initiate a reflexive dodge action, although they do add to reflexive dodges raised by other charms. The character also adds her permanent Essence score to her initiative total and as bonus dice to all Athletics pools to retain her footing, and suffers no penalties to her dice pools from standing in mud or water up to waist deep. White Crane Form is incompatible with the use of armor. A character may not use more than one Martial Arts form-type charm at a time.
