Rank 1 - Whispers of the Dead
As a Simple Action, you may choose a number of targets equal to your School Rank and test Mediation/Void against a Target Number of 15. If you succeed, each of those characters becomes your Mark for the remainder of the encounter. While you are attacking one of your Marks, they suffer a malus of -X to their Armor Target Number, where X equals to 2 * your Perception Attribute. You suffer no maluses from natural darkness. [Ninjutsu] Weapons are [Samurai] Weapons for you.
The dead are not without their advice to impart.

Rank 2 - Silent Wings
When testing or contesting Stealth, gain +2k0. When you would suffer damage from falling, the damage roll suffers a malus of -1k1; this malus increases to -2k2 at School Rank 4.
As quiet as the grave.

Rank 3 - Souls Take Flight
You may attack as a Simple Action when wielding a [Samurai] weapon.
In defense of his clan, a Haunter separates spirit from flesh.

Rank 4 - Thinning the Veil
When dealing damage, gain +X, where X is your Meditation Rank. Characters affected by your rank one Technique now suffer the malus to their Armor Target Number at all times rather than only when you attack them (The effect still ends at the end of the encounter).
By partially entering the Sojourning Realm from which their ancestors came, the Shigokoe come to more easily hear the voices of the departed.

Rank 5 - The Final Message
Once per Encounter, when you kill a character, you may activate this technique. When you activate this technique, fill your party’s Tactics Pool.
In the moment of death, the passage between this world and the next opens fully, and in that instant a Haunter may learn countless secrets.
