Fictional Martial Arts


Recommended Posts

A few of the Champions characters use unique martial arts. One of them is called "Silken Blade", I think from UMA. One uses a style where he's always DCV 12 regardless of the maneuver (lvls needed for that one) indicating a central stance for the character.


For a long time as GM, when I got to the DCV 12 character and a villain was going to attack, I used to ask, "What's your DCV?", even though I knew... it was habit! :)

I created my own Brawling which is just a subset of dirty infighting just so that it was easy to add to characters in hero designer.



3 Punch: 1/2 Phase, +1 OCV, +0 DCV, 5d6 Strike

A police training martial art.  In California at least, all officers are taught techniques but the rumors I hear are that most don't keep up to date with all the maneuvers.  Might need to add a pin in there too.

I also had RAT (Rent an Agent Team) agent martial arts and Inquisitor (Holy Roman Church) martial arts.  But the above three might be more interesting to people.
