Into the Fray
At the start of each battle before you and your allies roll initiative, roll a d4. A number of your allies equal to the roll gain the following benefit of your choice: a +4 bonus to initiative that battle; OR a +2 bonus to AC until the end of the first round.
You also gain the chosen bonus.
The +2 bonus to AC also applies to PD and MD.
The chosen allies now gain both bonuses (+2 to all defenses for the first round and +4 to initiative this battle).
