  • new drunken monkey style

    Hello every one,

    i'm building a martial art based on a mix of real drunken monkey/ lost monkey and notes from drunken master 2 movie ( only from what i have look up, not a real practitioner) . This is for my night caste player who is a monkey ( true mutation) and a drunkard.

    not shure if its well balanced and would love to get your opinion on this one

    i took a couple of ideas and charm from other similar martial art but modified them for my player:

    drunken master from Octopoid:

    celestial monkey style from momo is a good girl:

    Drunken monkey Style

    Practitioners of Drunken Monkey's emulate the movements of a monkey that accidently took alcohol and found himself in a foreign group of primates. For a moment they look dizzy or unbalanced; they take faltering steps, and might even waddle and look, well, lost. Part of the effectiveness is found in the way that it offers the attacker a highly skewed view of practitioners- making them look susceptible- which allows them to launch a devastating attack.
    Style Weapons: Practitioners of this Style fight mostly unarmed, but they can also use staffs and spears or improvised weapon and anything filled with alcohol, such has a bottle or keg. Unarmed and improvised weapon can be stunting to deal lethal damage

    Armor: Monkey Style is incompatible with armor.
    Special: Drunken Monkey Style Charms will often reference 'Alcohol' and increase or decrease the user's Alcohol levels. This refers to the number of doses of alcohol (see sidebar below) currently in the user's system. Each time he increases is level means he drinks alcohol.

    SIDEBAR: Alcohol
    Alcohol uses the rules for poisons found on page 232 of Ex3. A dose of alcohol has the following statistics: Damage/Interval 1B/3 hours, Duration 3 hours, Penalty -1, Vector Ingestion. Unlike most poisons, alcohol’s Penalty is cumulative with each dose taken. With tree or more success on a save the martial artist receives no damage or penalty but still receives one level of alcohol for limit and charm purpose. Should the accumulated penalty exceed the target’s Stamina; he must take a Miscellaneous Action that cannot be flurried in order to vomit. This action need only be taken when the penalty exceeds the target's Stamina - subsequent doses do not force subsequent expulsions. As a practical limit, a drinker cannot have more than (Stamina + Essence) doses of alcohol in her system at a time. If she consumes more doses than this, she must make a (Stamina + Resistance) roll at a difficulty of (1 + the number of doses in her system beyond the practical limit). Failure means she passes out immediately. In general, drinking a dose of alcohol is a miscellaneous action which cannot be flurried.
