You treat the DCs of all Survival checks made to track a target as if 5 lower than normal, and gain a +5 bonus on Perception checks to notice the target if it is using Stealth or to recognize it if it is using Disguise.
In a flash of recognition, you learn about the geography of your surroundings within a radius of 1 mile per 2 caster levels (minimum 1 mile). This instant familiarity grants you an insight bonus equal to your caster level (maximum +5) on Knowledge (geography) checks and Survival checks to avoid getting lost so long as you remain in the affected area.
You can cast this spell only if it is the first action you take on your turn. In a burst of shadowy feathers, you turn into a Tiny blurred shape reminiscent of a black raven until the beginning of your next turn.
As scale spikes, except that the spikes growing out of the scales have an enhancement bonus on attack and damage rolls equal to +1 for every 4 caster levels (maximum +5). This bonus does not allow the spikes to bypass damage reduction aside from magic.
Cut yourself and swear an oath of retribution on your own blood. Any attack, save, or check related to the oath grants you a morale bonus to that roll equal to the number of hit points of damage you sacrificed divided by 5.
