Rage: Gith berserkers can enter a rage at will. While raging, a gith adds +4 to STR and CON for a duration equal to its (modified) CON score in minutes. Evade rolls are considered one difficulty harder while raging. Afterward, the gith berserker gains two levels of fatigue. Rage can only occur if the gith is ‘Tired’ or better (see fatigue rules page 120). Typically, gith will only go into a rage if angered or justly threatened. Gith berserkers cannot use their psionic powers when enraged.
