Martial Arts Styles
Moonsilver Stone Style !! WIP !!
A style developed to be roughly between Celestial and Terrestrial Levels.
Uses Telgar's idea of Permanent Charms for most of the style.
Based on Stone Dragon Style with a twist.
Signature Weapons: bare hands/limbs/etc.
Armor Compatibility: Only Armor with a -0 Mobility Penalty or none.
Silver Fist Transformation</b>
<b>Cost: None Duration: Permanent Type: Special Min MA: 3 Min Essence: 2 Prerequisites: None
The first training of the Liquid Dragon Style is that the body is as lethal as any weapon forged by man. Using his training and physical conditioning the character may now choose to have his unarmed attacks deal lethal damage instead of bashing, as well as parry hand-to-hand attacks unarmed.
Boulder Arm Strike</b>
<b>Cost: None Duration: Permanent Type: Special Min MA: 4 Min Essence: 2 Prerequisites: Silver Fist Transformation
Having learned to fortify the strength of bone and muscle in their limbs and the correct posture to inflict maximum damage on their opponents, Stone Dragons are able to develop a personal attack using their bodies that inflicts damage comparable to that of a mundane weapon. The martial artist has 12 “points” to distribute amongst the stats of a new unarmed attack that uses the character’s Dexterity + Martial Arts pool. Note that the new attack automatically has a Rate of 1 and that the total stats must add up to 12, negatives can give extra points in other categories. This attack can not be a clinch or other special maneuver.
Ivory Hide Style</b>
<b>Cost: None Duration: Permanent Type: Special Min MA: 4 Min Essence: 2 Prerequisites: Silver Fist Transformation.
Having learned to deflect attacks, the next step in Liquid Dragon training is to accept them. The bodies of Stone Dragon stylists are tough, armored with leathery skin and layer upon layer of hardened muscle. Even lethal wounds are sometimes repelled entirely by their resilient physiques. The martial artist gains Hardness equal to their Stamina rating (overlaps innate Natural Hardness).
Wondrous Diamond Bones</b>
<b>Cost: None Duration: Permanent Type: Special Min MA: 4 Min Essence: 2 Prerequisites: Ivory Hide Style
At this point in the training, a Stone Dragon has perfected his physical form to the style’s requirements. His body has become armor and shield, as potent a defense coming from muscle and bone as from steel and jade. The character doubles his Stamina-based soak.
Moonsilver Dragon Form</b>
<b>Cost: 5 motes Duration: One scene Type: Simple Min MA: 4 Min Essence: 3 Prerequisites: Boulder Arm Strike, Wondrous Diamond Bones
Taking his first steps into the active techniques of the style the martial artist assumes the stalwart pose of the Stone Dragon and fortifies both his stamina and strength. All martial arts attacks made by the character ignore twice his Martial Arts score in soak and double their damage for the purposes of determining knockback or knockdown. This Charm can not be used when in armor.
Avalanche Shield Technique</b>
<b>Cost: 3 motes Duration: Instant Type: Reflexive Min MA: 4 Min Essence: 3 Prerequisites: Stone Dragon Form
Having learned to rely on his body’s strength, the Stone Dragon is able to turn to his own form for protection when other measures fail. For every success on a partially successful parry or dodge attempt the character may increase his lethal or bashing soak by 2.
<b>Cost: 8 motes, 1 willpower Duration: Instant Type: Simple Min MA: 5 Min Essence: 4 Prerequisites: Avalanche Shield Technique
The body of a Stone Dragon Master has become a weapon on par with any Daiklave. He has learned the use of fists, arms, shoulders, feet and the whole of his form. By slamming his foe with his steel-hard bulk a Stone Dragon martial artist can inflict serious, if not fatal, damage. Such an attack uses the sum of the character’s physical attributes and Martial Arts scores as its base roll. The damage of a successful World-Shattering Assault is equal to thrice the martial artist’s Strength and is either Lethal or Bashing. This attack can not be dodged and is treated as a tackle attack.
