Hide In Plain Sight

Starting at 10th level, you can remain perfectly still for long periods of time to set up ambushes.

You lose this benefit if you move or fall prone, either voluntarily or because of some external effect.

  • Signature Control: When you would cast your chosen jutsu, reduce the cost of the chosen jutsu by 2. If this would reduce the cost of the jutsu to 0, it instead costs 1. If your chosen jutsu requires concentration, reduce the cost to maintain the jutsu by 2 this can reduce the cost to maintain a jutsu to 0.
