    The mechanics in Scroll of the Monk weren't wonky, they were literally worthless. I've talked to a writer who was on that book and wow those are some horror stories.

    The fluff in my opinion... I mean its salvagable in some areas. As Lea pointed out it is kinda wonky to have a society wide sect of martial artists if only a minor subsect can do them (I often use Rand's interpetation that mortals can learn some techniques via them as NPC only abilities), but I find there are some ideas to pillage. Just don't use the crunch....

    I'm not going to touch on Holden's treatment from OPP as I feel that is a rabbit hole best not gone down in this topic, but I'm against making a style literally called Hummingbird Style and throwing it up for sale. I am not against making a Hummingbird inspired or Fencing style in general.

    I like the rest of your post tho, things to consider....

    I am. You're going to the furthest extreme possible to try and address your point. I have been reading up on wuxia and I have been reading up on martial arts in both the real world and fiction. Maybe it stretches some belief? I dunno, I don't have a crystal ball and won't know until I actually start writing it. But point is I think know how to handle such a thing otherwise in a respectful fashion otherwise I wouldn't be attempting it....

    Unfortunately there isn't a chance to do this one. Hummingbird style was holden's baby. I think releasing a fencing style would be cool, but I don't think and can't release something in good conscious that was someone else's idea/work....

    Lea, I've heard of this debate from you before and quite frankly I do not share it nor do I agree with it. Not doing it is not an option for me simply because I want to do it. If your advice is "Don't do it" then I have nothing to add to it other than rejecting it....

    What do you want in a Martial Arts book?

    As some of you may know I've recently written a little thing about martial arts, but I'm looking to go beyond just some mere crunch. I want to go more in-depth about the world of Martial Arts in Creation with paired with crunch that isn't shit (lol, Scroll of the Monk). That said, what would interest you the most in a book about martial arts? So far I've gotten some of the following notes in my outline for the planned series of books, but any of you can think of particular point of interest I'd be happy to hear it.

  • I did not write them with that in mind no. The way I've written these charms is that they're ability charms for essentially any character. You can use core charms with an Expanded Lotus style, but not other Expanded Lotus styles. To quote a person that will not be named:



    Basically trying to balance two Expanded Lotus styles would be such a colossal pain in the ass that I dare not even attempt it. It would be trying to make a balanced set that combined Melee and Brawl. I mean if you want to do it then I encourage you to do so. I will just warn the charms are not balanced...

  • Hey, glad you enjoy it. Single Point expansion was a blast to write for me and one of the one's I'm really happy about. My favorite would have to be the weapon fusion charm....

    Go ahead and change them as you see fit, but I'm more interested in how to write charms to have less words but same effect. Reason being: This is a first draft and things are going to change. I feel if you did a spell check now another road would be paving over it.

  • Path of the Expanded Lotus (Martial Arts Expansions)

    Remember that martial arts expansion I was working on back at Christmas? Well, Christmas in July. ...OK not July anymore but I'm close damnit!

    Do you like martial arts and wish you had more options? Do you wish your favourite style had more options in-game without pulling out a comparison table for weapon and armour combos? Do you want to remain true to your style without feeling like you got cheated for not taking native charms instead? Do you want your chosen style to remain viable late game without exploiting horrific rule abuses?

    If you said yes to any of those, then...
