Alarum [Leadership] (adapted from Wrath & Rage: A Guidebook to Orcs & Half-Orcs)
You can issue a call to arms to quickly rally your followers in defense.
Benefit: When your retinue (your followers and cohort) are surprised (and not merely flat-footed), they gain a +4 dodge bonus to Armor Class, just as if they had taken the total defense action. This bonus does not last beyond the surprise round. They still lose their Dexterity bonus to Armor Class while flat-footed and surprised, as normal. This bonus applies only to your followers and cohorts, and not to you or your other allies.
Normal: Characters who are surprised cannot act during the surprise round.
