Dai-tengu question

Looking at the description of the Dai-tengu in Demigod, I noticed the "Mystic Sensei" power:

"...While studying under a dai-tengu, any martial-arts student (Scion or otherwise) reduces the experience cost for the following Abilities by one point per dot: Brawl, Dodge, Melee and Stealth." (Scion: Demigod, p. 276)

All well and good, but there is no "Dodge" Ability in Scion. :) I'm thinking of substituting either Athletics (which would be the closest analogy, I think) or possibly Thrown (which seems to make sense for the "ninja" vibe the tengu seem to have in numerous representations, at least in pop culture).

Anyone care to opine?
  • You can calculate a character's Dodge, though there is no place for it on the character sheet. Scion: Hero pg. 192. Dodge is (Dex + Epic Dex + Athletics + Legand + bonuses if any) divide by 2.

    Dodge is fairly important despite the fact it was forgotten on the character sheets. So I guess for this thing you're talking about, it would reduce the cost of athletics, because that is tied into the dodge score.

      *nods* Given the way the "mystic sensei" power is worded, though, I'm afraid I might have players saying, "But where's the Dodge Ability on the character sheet?!?" :)

      ...it would reduce the cost of athletics, because that is tied into the dodge score.

      I was sort of figuring on substituting "Athletics" for "Dodge," as well.
  • I substitute Athletics for Dodge.
