Kitten Style Martial Arts [2e] [also a total joke really]

29 Sep 2006, 18:17

Kitten Style Martial Arts
Terrestrial Martial Art
Form Weapons: Unarmed only.
Armor: Not allowed.

Scaling the World
Cost: 2m; Mins: Martial Arts 2, Essence 1; Type: Reflexive
Keywords: Combo-OK
Duration: Indefinite
Prerequisite Charms: None
Kittens have tiny claws for climbing. So long as the mote cost for this charm is committed, the character may scale any generally-vertical surface automatically.

Mew
Cost: 1m; Mins: Martial Arts 3, Essence 1; Type: Reflexive
Keywords: Combo-OK
Duration: Until Next Action
Prerequisite Charms: None
The Kitten-master mews and purrs lightly and not a thing in the world with a heart can harm them. While this charm is active the character may not be targeted with any form of attack by anyone without a conviction higher than (the charm user’s Essence). As a side effect, automatons and mindless undead (and any other being without a conviction score) may not attack the character either. This charm instantly breaks if the character makes any form of attack, and does not work if the character has already made an attack this action.

Soft Pawing
Cost: 3m; Mins: Martial Arts 3, Essence 2; Type: Supplemental
Keywords: Combo-OK
Duration: Instant
Prerequisite Charms: Scaling the World
With a gentle brushing a kitten can restore hope and joy. This charm supplements an unarmed martial arts attack. The attack inflicts no damage, but allows the target to instantly recover 1 willpower or 1 spent virtue channel. Characters are advised to use this method only on allies. Multiple applications of this charm, even as part of a flurry, each have full effect. An attack enhanced with this charm does not count as an attack for the Mew charm.

Kitten Form
Cost: 6m; Mins: Martial Arts 4, Essence 2; Type: Simple (Speed 5, DV -2)
Keywords: Form-type, Obvious
Duration: One Scene
Prerequisite Charms: Mew, Soft Pawing
Like a kitten lazing in a warm patch of sun, the martial artist contents themselves to lie down and be cute. While in this form, the character suffers no penalties for lying on the ground, including when knocked down or knocked back. In addition, the character may retain the benefits of this form while Inactive. While Inactive, the character recovers 1 level of bashing damage every 5 tics and 1 level of lethal damage every 10 tics as they rest and recover.

Pile On
Cost: 1m; Mins: Martial Arts 4, Essence 2; Type: Reflexive
Keywords: Combo-OK
Duration: Instant
Prerequisite Charms: Kitten Form
Following the lesson shown by a pile of kittens huddled together, the master learns to aid others more effectively in subduing a foe. This charm can be activated when the character aids a grapple (Exalted: page 158). Add the charm user’s Essence in bonus dice to the grappler, instead of the normal 1 bonus die.

Cuddle Together for Warmth
Cost: 5m; Mins: Martial Arts 5, Essence 2; Type: Reflexive
Keywords: Combo-OK
Duration: Indefinite
Prerequisite Charms: Pile On
Taking the lesson of the pile of kittens a step further, the martial artist lends their aid to an ally in dire straights. By activating this charm and remaining in contact with an ally, the character forces all environmental hazards (cold, fire, acid bath, etc) that the target would suffer to transfer to themselves. If two characters use this charm on each other at the same time the environmental effect is negated entirely.

Earnest Little Digger
Cost: 3m; Mins: Martial Arts 5, Essence 3; Type: Simple (Speed 3, DV -2)
Keywords: Combo-Basic
Duration: Instant
Prerequisite Charms: Kitten Form
Pawing away at the ground with all their heart, the master gets surprising distance in short time. This charm allows the character to dig through any non-indestructible surface at normal dash speed. This has no affect on specific objects, only surfaces such as floors. This charm can also be used to swim at high speeds by digging through the water.

Melt the Iron Heart
Cost: 4m; Mins: Martial Arts 5, Essence 3; Type: Simple (Speed 4, DV -2)
Keywords: Combo-OK
Duration: Instant
Prerequisite Charms: Cuddle Together for Warmth, Earnest Little Digger
By placing one hand harmlessly against their target and staring at them with big eyes, sometimes accompanied with a faint mewing, the master brings warmth to even the coldest heart. This charm is an unarmed martial arts attack. The attack inflicts no damage, but if it successfully strikes the target gains one dot of compassion. Multiple applications of this charm are cumulative, to a maximum of 6 compassion. These dots fade 1 hour after being granted, but the target may spend 2 experience points per dot they wish to keep to make the dots permanent. As normal, raised virtues after character creation do not alter willpower. An attack enhanced with this charm does not count as an attack for the Mew charm.

I've been wanting to develop a Charm called Kitten-Lifting Prana, wherein the user picks up a kitten. He may then possibly go on to use Tummy-Rubbing Method.

Is it bad that I read that and ended up thinking that this is a very powerful MA?

First action Mew, then move into Form before chain usage of Soft Pawing.

Untouchable regenerating mascot that refills Willpower faster than most can spend it. And heaven forbid that the Kitten Martial Artist somehow get the ability to heal...

*wags finger at self* Bad Lunar. Smile at the joke, giggle, and move on.
You say chimera like it's a bad thing...

Well, that would be techically correct. Not a hostile martial art for sure, but it would definately have its uses. ^_^
:D

If that's bad, then I don't want to do good.
