 SPECIAL ABILITIES

Battle Cry (Su)

3/day while under 50% HP, Judge Bergan may let out a battle cry as a swift action, greatly increasing his combat power. For 3 rounds, he gains a +3 competence bonus to attack and damage rolls, as well as damage reduction of 6/- which counts as coming from a Knight class feature and thus stacks with his existing damage reduction.
