Rank 1 - Cross the Mountain
You may reroll any skill or trait roll that uses Strength. You must keep the second second result if you do so. In addition, you suffer no penalties of Moderate terrain and only half penalties for Difficult terrain. Heavy Weapons and Unarmed Strikes gain the [Samurai] keyword for you.
In the harsh land the Clan of Mountains occupies, only the strong survive.

Rank 2 - Strength of Stone
A number of times per session equal to your Strength trait, you may reroll a damage roll. You must keep the higher result.
It is only fitting that the weak are crushed.

You may make attacks as a Simple Action while using [Samurai] weapons.
If you can't withstand the mountain, stay off it.

Rank 4 - Overpowering Strike
Your attacks ignore all Armor Target Number from armor and Reduction equal to half your Strength.
You place too much faith in your armor.

Rank 5 - Strike Through
After rolling Initiative, you may choose to lower your result by any amount. When attacking a target that acts before you, add your Strength to the total of all attack and damage rolls.
It is not the first strike that determines the victor, but the final.
