Safe Fall Passive: You may fall 6 yards before you would take damage. Active: Gain an additional 3 yards of falling before you would take damage. Additionally the first increment you would take damage ( 9-12 yards) deals non-lethal damage. 1 Mana.
Acrobatic Charge You may make Rank Acrobatics checks to tumble around, over, or under foes and obstacles without interrupting a charge. You may diverge from a straight line to your target by 1 yard in either direction, and with each successful Acrobatic check you add 1 dice to the charge attack.
