    Default They said it was weaboo fightan magic... Now it is! (3.5, ToB, Discipline)

    Ki Fist Discipline
    AKA: the "Kame... hame... HAAAA!!!" Discipline


    Ages ago, before even Reshar was trained, there existed a supreme martial artist, one who focused not on the use of weapons, but on the externalization of his inner strength in the form of giant energy attacks and high speed movement.

    Yeah.

    Spending a great deal of time working on his new school, he eventually taught several people how to use the type of attacks he used, and died peacefully in his sleep several decades later.

    When Reshar was wandering, attempting to learn from a variety of disciplines, he passed this discipline over due to who he encountered who used it- an extremely powerful and quite evil djinn. After their brief clash, the djinn was sealed by an unknown force, and Reshar continued on his quest, eventually forgetting about the techniques used by his opponent as the years passed by.

    Recently, a group of around fifty evil Ki Fist practitioners have been wandering the world, taking over land and selling it to the highest bidder. Their leader is one of the most feared individuals in the area, and engaging him in combat is... inadvisable.

    The Ki Fist discipline focuses on moving in unique ways and delivering various force damage dealing attacks from close range. The associated weapons of the Ki Fist discipline are natural attacks, ranged touch attacks, and unarmed strikes.

    Because the Ki Fist discipline was never taught widely at the Temple of the Nine Swords or any similar center of training, most martial adepts do not know any maneuvers from it, or even know it exists. Only Swordsages can learn maneuvers from the Ki Fist discipline. There are two ways to master the discipline. The first is to have been trained in it. If you choose to make a martial adept that has already been trained in the Ki Fist discipline at character creation, you simply replace one discipline that adept could normally learn maneuvers from with the Ki Fist discipline.

    The other way is to seek out a master of the Ki Fist disciplineľa martial adept capable of using at least 5th-level maneuvers from the discipline- and to learn Ki Fist from them. You must train for a month under the master, or spend a month in research, and spend 1,000 xp at the end of your training. You gain the ability to learn maneuvers from the Ki Fist discipline. In addition, you may exchange your maneuvers known for maneuvers of the Ki Fist discipline. You may exchange one maneuver of each level, and the new maneuvers you learn must be of the same level as the exchanged maneuvers, unlike normal.

    The associated skill for Ki Fist maneuvers is Balance.


    New Feat
    Spoiler
    Show
    Extra Ki (General)
    Prerequisites: Ki Pool, BAB +2
    Benefit: When you take this feat, your daily Ki pool increases by 2.
    Special: You may take this feat a number of times equal to you Wisdom modifier. Each time adds a further 2 points to your daily Ki pool.

    Ki Rrefresh
    Prerequisites: Ki Pool, one Ki Fist maneuver
    Benefit: 3 times per day you may refresh up to 1/4th of you maximum Ki pool as a swift action



    ________________

    Ki Fist maneuvers and Ki pools: Upon learning a Ki Fist stance, an initiator gains a Ki pool equal to that stance's level. If he already had a Ki pool, the amount gained is added to that pool instead. Some Ki Fist maneuvers can be enhanced by expending points from your Ki pool. This Ki pool functions almost exactly like the Ki pool of a Ninja (Complete Adventurer p.5), with the Ki fist practitioner gaining bonus points equal to his Constitution modifier instead of his Wisdom modifier, and it is dependant on the number of known Ki Fist stances and not class level. Furthermore, a Ki Fist user may replenish his Ki pool to 1/2th of its maximum points by meditating in a quiet place for 30 minutes.

    Ki Fist maneuvers: Most Ki Fist maneuvers are supernatural abilities. If one isn't, it will say so.

    _______________
    Rushes: Some Ki Fist maneuvers have a description of (Rush). This is a new maneuver type created by Garryl, and explained further in this thread.

    Default Ki Fist maneuvers (Full)

    1st
    Spoiler
    Show

    False Step
    Ki Fist (Rush)
    Level: Swordsage 1
    Initiation Time: One move action

    Your superior speed allows you to slip past your foe, leaving no openings for him to take advantage of.

    When you initiate this maneuver, you may move up to 1/3rd of your speed and not provoke attacks of opportunity.
    This maneuver is an extraordinary ability.

    Ki Sphere
    Ki Fist (Strike) [Force]
    Level: Swordsage 1
    Initiation Time: One standard action
    Range: Close (25 feet +5 feet/2 Initiator levels)
    Targets: One creature

    Oh, for the love of... You said no more weaboo fightan magic! Fine. You throw a small sphere of energy at your foe.

    When you initiate this maneuver, make a ranged touch attack against the target. If this attack succeeds, you deal 1d4 points of force damage to the target.

    Ki enhancement: By expending a point of Ki, you may instead deal 1d6 points of force damage.

    Velocity Dodge
    Ki Fist (Rush)
    Level: Swordsage 1
    Initiation Time: One move action

    Your speed gives you the edge you need to dodge the approaching blows.
    When you initiate this maneuver, you may move a distance of up to your base land speed. Until the beginning of your next turn, you gain a Dodge bonus to your AC equal to 1/5th the distance in feet you moved using this maneuver.

    This maneuver is an extraordinary ability.

    Superhuman Reflexes
    Ki Fist (Boost)
    Level: Swordsage 1
    Initiation Time: One swift action

    Your body flickers, and you make attacks far faster than you should be able to.

    Turtle Style Stance
    Ki Fist (Stance)
    Level: Swordsage 1

    You fall into the stance, the Ki within you increasing your attack's power.

    No idea what to make of this so far, but I have huge respect for you as a homebrewer, so I can safely say it shall be awesome.

    Only question though, you say the ki pool functions like the ninja ki pool. Does that mean they stack together? I don't think this would really be unbalanced at all, and could actually provide a fix for the ninja if you gave them limited initiating capacities from only this school (well, maybe shadow hand and diamond mind too, but you get the point).

    EDIT: Ninja Ki Fist practitioner'ed by manuever descriptions. Will have critique up shortly.

    EDIT 2: Stance of the False Step might work better as a rush. Of course, then you get a lack of stances at first level, meaning no level one Ki enhancements for you. But I'm sure you can probably think up another stance.

    If you have levels in both swordsage and ninja? Sure. I was using ninja because it's the only class I've found that has a Ki pool...

    Actually, it's more like "Instant Transmission'd" than "Ninja'd"...

    I'm not too sure really, I don't really know anything about DBZ (which I'm certain this is based on) other than the infamous KAAAMEEE-HAAAMEEE-HAAAAA!!!. But I can probably give some generic ideas if I think about it.

    Well, DBZ is the main influence, but any Shonen series where the main characters are throwing large energy attacks around works- Yu Yu Hakusho, DBZ, and the like.

    Yeah.

    Is this somewhere where rasengan and/or chidori and/or kaiten will find a place?

    In fact, I've been working on a discipline myself inspired by the Buddhist Palm style from Kung Fu Hustle, and it has lots of force attacks. Do you want me to post them here?

    My word, no. Chidori is electricity, not force.


    As for the other, I'd suggest that you make your own thread for that- that'll split up the weird for other people.

    What about Rasengan / Kaiten (rotation), they fit into the force theme?

    [nerd]Nope. It's chakra that hardens and spikes erratically, in a pattern similar to electricity, the same way Rasengan is chakra moving in a spiral, not a ball of wind. It has no actual electrical properties, so it's basically just a kamehameha wave that you punch with.[/nerd]

    [nerd]It's infused with lightning chakra and, yes, is made of electricity. Hence Sasuke conducting it through swords and other metal objects to surprise his opponents.[/nerd]

    This is going to be both hilarious and awesome. But in my eyes mostly hilarious.

    ...I was speaking of the damage type it would deal, not the actual composition of the technique in question.

    Chidori and Rasengan are created from opposite premises. Chidori focuses on Elemental Composition, turning Chakra into a jolt of electricity - Rasengan focuses on Spatial Composition, making non-elemental Chakra spin in various directions.

    Due to specialized natures of the jutsus, it's very hard to add Spatial Composition to Chidori, or Elemental Composition to Rasengan. However, Sasuke has managed the former, witnessed as him conducting Chidori through other objects and shaping it to a spear, and Naruto eventually achieved latter with creation of Rasen Shuriken.

    Seriously though, the concept and execution seems solid so far. I can't say I'd ever use it much, for obvious the reason of being just a little ridiculous.

    Shape transformation is part of Chidori from the get go. According to Kakashi at least (and he's probably the one to ask), you get the lightning chakra, and then shape it into the form of a large current.

    Anyway, let's not derail the thread with nerdy anime talk (although I still think rasengan and kaiten could fit into this discipline).

    I foresee Dragon Balls and Kamehameha in the future... Though, it would be fun to see.

    Maybe you should add a stance that gives flight? Enhanced it adds a powerfull charge attack or something.

    Dude, haven't you heard? The Naha Stone is the new Excalibur. It's a discipline based on religion, leadership, and Hulking Hurler. Favored weapons are scepters and any kind of rock. Preferred skill is, of course, Knowledge (nobility and royalty).

    ...Good enough? :) Sorry if this derails the topic a bit; really have nothing to say but this was just too good to ignore. If anything...this would be awesome if turned into Psionics, because ki has too little uses and usually doesn't do well for a one-round use unless you go for minutes instead of rounds. Or an ability equivalent to a spell that lasts at least minutes.

    Just giving what I think can be improved and why. 3:30am and too tired to form a non-objective opinion.

    Moving 1/3 your base land speed without provoking an attack of opportunity means taking a 5ft. step in the majority of cases. It might make sense to make that 1/2 or 3/4. Basically, as written, you get a +9001 on tumble checks for the purposes of bypassing AoO, but you lose 1/6 of your movement of just making a normal tumble check. It probably wouldn't even be unbalanced to move your full speed (which costs a bit more in tumble ranks to perform normally).

    For the Ki Enhancement for Ki Sphere, might I suggest making it add 2 force damage to the d4 that you roll? A 50% boost on a max random roll that is that low seems underpowered.

    Hyperdash is basically a charge that allows you to negate the AC penalty, turn multiple times, and make a strike at the end. Oh, but you lose the bonus on bull-rushing. This is overpowered for a second-level maneuver.

    For Ki-Beam, LoS and LoE are already standard (ToB45), so you just need to state "One creature"
    On balance: Just because you don't agree with the level of balance doesn't mean that others cannot. While balance is objective, which balance is being aimed at is subjective.

    Looking forward to more from this. Also, I think this discipline is suited to including some move action maneuvers.

    Damage output seems kind of weak. Increase some of the strikes to full-round actions if you need to compensate (or add the option to do so).

    Needs a counter which lets you teleport behind someone whenever they move.

    About time someone someone did something like this!

    Great work here! I can't wait to see the high level maneuvers!
