Ive started editing in the technique descriptions back on page 8. Sorry for the delays on this but the job and health situation has been bad for me lately. With a little luck that'll change and I'll be able to post more effectively.

Maneuver descriptions ready to go, actual crunch coming up. Anyone disagree with what I got so far? I'm hoping i got things right...

Okay I'm probably gonna run into the character limit if I leave all 3 styles in one post, so I'm starting off with Te reposted here. Atemi has example names of attacks usable with that maneuver, I just have to decide what would be the best way to learn them. The three options are Feats as prerequisites (which could easily be too Feat intensive), learn a new one any time you learn any new feat regardless of what it is, or BAB. Any preferences?

Te Maneuvers

Atemi (Prerequisites: Stunning Fist) Atemi is the art of striking vital points on the body such as nerve centers, the carotid artery, joints, or weak spots vulnerable to breaking, or causing concussion from blows to the head. Damage can be used to distract an opponent to follow up with a more devastating attack. Unfortunately it is limited against heavily armored opponents. Atemi techniques cannot be used against opponents wearing Heavy Armor.
Eye Punch When making an successful Unarmed Strike attack with your Stunning Fist Feat you may Blind your opponent instead of Stunning him.
Low Blow When making an successful Unarmed Strike attack with your Stunning Fist Feat you may Paralyze your opponent instead of Stunning him.
Concussing Blow When making an successful Unarmed Strike attack with your Stunning Fist Feat you may Confuse your opponent instead of Stunning him.
Numb Body When making an successful Unarmed Strike attack with your Stunning Fist Feat you may make your opponent Flat-footed instead of Stunning him.
Minor Bone Break When making an successful Unarmed Strike attack with your Stunning Fist Feat you may Slow (as per the spell) your opponent instead of Stunning him.
Zanshin (Prerequisites: Eyes in the Back of Your Head) Zanshin is "relaxed awareness", the ability to be completely aware of ones surroundings (and thus opponents) while seeming to be not paying attention at all.

Supernatural Awareness At Level 8+ you no longer lose your Dex Bonus to AC, and are never considered Flat-Footed.
Uke (Prerequisites: Combat Expertise) Uke are techniques for blocking or responding to an opponents attacks. You may only use one Uke technique at a time.
Painful Block If your opponent misses you on a round you are Fighting Defensively with the Combat Expertise Feat, he takes damage equal to your unarmed strike damage.

Front Push Kick If an opponent moves into or through a square you threaten and provokes an Attack of Opportunity, and you successfully hit him with an Unarmed Strike, his movement ends in that square, and his turn is over.
Knee Kick If you successfully attack an opponent who is Grappling you with your Unarmed Strike, he must make a Fortitude Save (DC is 10 plus half HD plus Str Modifier) or let you go.
Thrusting Kick If you make a Full Attack with your Unarmed Strike, you may opt to 'give up' all but one attack, and increase the damage of your single attack assuming it hits. If the attack does hit it does normal damage times (the number of attacks given up plus 1). For example if you can make 4 attacks with an Unarmed Strike, and choose to make only one, it does normal damage x4.
Stomp Kick If you successfully attack an opponent who is Prone with your Unarmed Strike, you do full damage and do not need to roll.
Tai Sabaki (Prerequisites: Dodge) Tai Sabaki is the art of avoiding attacks.
Dodge The Bonus you get from your Dodge Feat is now equal to your Wisdom Modifier.

Block/Strike If your opponent misses you on a round you are Fighting Defensively with the Combat Expertise Feat, he immediately provokes an Attack of Opportunity (you do not apply the Attack roll for Fighting Defensively to this attack, and this does stack with Painful Block).

Advanced Geri Waza (Prerequisites: Geri Waza) Multiple kicks or more difficult ones.

The full list for Te is up Eikonos. Any thoughts?

Eikonos

Holy Brilliant Energy Italian Mustache Buck Teeth Dragoncraft Jelly Batman :smallcool:

This is so damn comprehensive I just cut my thumb with a katana (yesterday actually, while reading this stuff, the bleeding was suprisingly "fountaneous", my bathroom looked like a murder scene) !! :smalltongue:

I'll be taking some more time (an hour or so) processing this awesomness before I can make a meaningful statement, but even before that I don't think there is anything more to add...really :smallsmile:

Bhu
2010-08-08, 09:13 PM
Hmm...there's 46 maneuvers listed...maybe I went overboard with the descriptions. At this level I'd have to make them alternate combat maneuvers like Trip or Disarm. In other words not world shatteringly powerful...

Eikonos
2010-08-09, 12:05 AM
Well, I read caefully everything you posted under Te, and it's so comprehensive I really don't know what to do with this...I should assume you managed to actually exhust the list of possible techniques...:smalleek:...:smallcool:

Jujutsu Maneuvers

Yoroi Kumichi (Prerequisites: Katame-Waza) You have learned to wrestle opponents who are in armor, thereby using it against them, or grapple while in armor yourself.
Grappling in Armor When making a Grapple against an opponent while you are in armor, your opponent gets no bonuses with his own Yoroi Kumichi abilities if he has any.
Grappling Armored Opponents When making a Grapple Check against an armored opponent while unarmored yourself, you may add his Armor Check Penalty as a Bonus to your Grapple Check.
Tripping Armored Opponents When making a Trip Attempt against an armored opponent while unarmored yourself, you may add his Armor Check Penalty as a Bonus to your Tripping Check.
Throwing Armored Opponents When making an attempt to throw an armored opponent while unarmored yourself, you may add his Armor Check Penalty as a Bonus to your Grapple Check. For purposes of this ability 'throw' is using any unarmed combat Feat with the word throw in the title, Maneuvers of the Sublime Way that throw opponents to the ground, or Jujutsu/Taijuts throwing techniques.
Katame-Waza (Prerequisites: Improved Grapple) Various joint locks and arm bars.
Arm Locks Opponents you Grapple cannot make attacks with Light Weapons until they escape your Grapple.
Leg Locks You don't take penalties to Grapple Standing opponents when you are Prone (i.e. you don't take the -4 Penalty on the Touch Attack to initiate the Grapple).
Pain Compliance Hold If an opponent you are Grappling attempts to attack you with a weapon or unarmed strike he must make a Fortitude Save (DC is 1o plus 1/2 HD plus Str Modifier) or be Stunned 1 round.
Joint Extension If an opponent you are Grappling attempts to attack you with a weapon or unarmed strike he must make a Fortitude Save (DC is 1o plus 1/2 HD plus Str Modifier) or take a -2 Penalty to Attack ROlls with that limb for the rest of the encounter.

Shime-Waza (Prerequisites: Improved Grapple) Various choking techniques.
Prone Choke Holds If you have a Prone opponent Pinned in a Grapple, you may elect to cut off his air instead of doing damage. This works like suffocation on page 304 of the DMG, except the opponent needs only Save as long as you can keep up the Pin (if he breaks the hold you have to start over), and he goes unconscious instead of dying.
Prone Strangle Holds If you have a Prone opponent Pinned in a Grapple, you may elect to damage his windpipe. This works like suffocation on page 304 of the DMG, and also does your normal Grapple damage, btu as it requires more effort opponents outside of the Grapple get an additional +2 Bonus on attack rolls against you.

Hand Throws If you succeed in making a Trip Attack against an opponent, he must make a Reflex Save (DC is 10 plus 1/2 HD plus Str Modifier) or drop what he is holding.

Bhu
2010-08-15, 02:41 AM
OK hte three lists have been revised to give them all the same number of maneuvers. Te had far more than the other two.

Anyone have thoughts? Have I strayed to far from what each art teaches?

Bhu
2010-08-17, 03:35 AM
I got a temp job, lemme get used to teh schedule and posting will resume

Kensen
2010-08-17, 06:02 AM
You've listed an impressive number of jujutsu and taijutsu techniques, but does D&D need this level of detail? D&D combat is very abstract and unrealistic...

Bhu
2010-08-17, 11:48 PM
I sometimes overdo stuff :smallredface:

I may end up reducing the list if appears too cumbersome or clunky.

Bhu
2010-08-19, 12:57 AM
Okay if you peek at Te I've listed some example effects for Atemi. If you like how this works I just have to decide how you get them and in what order and if there are more prereqs.

Bhu
2010-08-20, 12:27 AM
OK I was a lil burned out the last time I posted. I redid the Atemi, and they work better now. Any thoughts on whether or not you like this? What direction I go in depends on some initial feedback.

Bhu
2010-08-24, 02:10 AM
Most of the basic blocking techniques are up

Bhu
2010-08-25, 02:04 AM
Dodges and Elbow Strikes are up for review

Bhu
2010-08-27, 01:20 AM
Basic Kiai and punching stuff is up

Bhu
2010-08-30, 12:43 AM
I got the basic kicking and Zanshin stuff up.

You back yet Eikonos? :smallsmile:

Bhu
2010-09-01, 01:51 AM
Jujutsu now has armor grappling added. Is it worded clearly enough?

Bhu
2010-09-03, 12:42 AM
Eikonos you back yet?

Eikonos
2010-09-04, 01:08 PM
I'm back alright, full 6 days now.

At the moment I'm enjoying the sunset, saturday will be over in just a few hours and I still have heaps of things to do...:smallannoyed:

I've read through all the new material and came to a simple conclusion - I like it :smallsmile:

While away on my 2 week vacation I had some time to experiment with many of your PrC's and so far it's all going smooooothly :smallbiggrin:

My players had clashes with lots upon lots of npc's naughtily outfitted with sinister backstories, inspiring descriptions and armed to their teeth with wicked feats, spells and an array of your creations, ex.:

- goblin Saburai riding dire wolves;
- several hobgoblin Yojimbos that managed to withdraw alive after a run in with the players (they weren't pursued because the party suffered enough damage to be convinced not to "for safety reasons";);
- a "beyond enemy lines" mission to disrupt the siege of a duergar city by hobgoblin forces that ended with meeting a Savasmak (yup, epic guy, they are 11th level :smallwink:) and to their surprise being allowed to leave unharmed;

I'm having another session tomorrow, I'm thinking about throwing in more of your samurai and orc/goblinoid goodies !! :smallcool:

Bhu
2010-09-06, 12:50 AM
Nice to se you back! Got prone grappling up now.

Bhu
2010-09-09, 12:16 AM
Ukemi techniques are up.

Any feedback yet Eikonos?

Eikonos
2010-09-10, 12:20 AM
Ok, I finally had some time to read thoroughly all three groups and here are my conclusions:

Te Maneuvers

- Atemi: great, though I cannot see the limitaion against heavily armored opponents (not that I find it problematic or anything :D)
- Zanshin: very handy (it doesen't seem to have an advanced level, but that's no suggestion on my part, as I can't think of adding anything more to it)
- Uke: very well balanced (in my view) and offers really cool counterstiking possibilities, countering block is really powerful but should be left as it is
- Te Waza: palm strike looks somewhat underpowered, knife hand is...hmm, can't really say what bugs me, but it's a little bland, maybe; quick srike is great :)
- Geri Waza: front push kick...hmm, works great but the name suggests "front" square only (again, I'm fine with the name, just pointing it out), knee kick and thrusting kick are superb ideas, stomp kick looks ok
- Tai Sabaki: can dodge be combined with Monk's AC Bonus ability ?, redirect opponent is yet another very cool combat option
- Kiai: as a great fan of Combat Focus feats, it's full of win (and well balanced imo)
- Enpi: both ok, seen some of it in use by some karate fighters, worked wonders after a spinning counter :)

More to come :smallsmile:

Bhu
2010-09-10, 12:59 AM
Dodge bonuses do stack with the Monks ability yes.

Bhu
2010-09-12, 02:52 AM
A prone PC can grapple a standing opponent cant he?

Bhu
2010-09-13, 01:29 AM
Got throws and locks done for now. Not sure I like the way they are currently.

Bhu
2010-09-14, 01:12 AM
Okay the basic maneuvers of all three styles are done. Any more thoughts Eikonos?

Bhu
2010-09-16, 02:44 AM
Okay I gotta make a deadline so work is slowing down (more) till I get this file done and collect money (cause is desperately needs the money!).

Bhu
2010-09-20, 02:09 AM
Finally got a chance to do more stuff. Looks like I'll need another Taijutsu ability as well.

Bhu
2010-09-23, 01:36 AM
Nother chunk of te and Taijutsu up.

Bhu
2010-09-26, 02:43 AM
You'll notice a few more additions. The process of doing these has given me the beginnings of new ideas. I may redesign the Pechin at least, but I'm thinking of changes to the Samurai as a whole.

Bhu
2010-09-29, 02:11 AM
Te is done Eikonos

Okay, I need to do some redesign work on this one, and right now most people have lost interest besides Eikonos. I'm also in need of finding a job, so I'm temporarily suspending work on this thread for the moment.

Worry not Eikonos I shall continue work on this :smallwink:
