These are custom charms for Lunar Hero Style.


[edit] Lunar Hero Style

Lunar Hero Style is the natural style for the Lunar Exalted. It is a Celestial-level style focused on forcing a single opponent to face the Lunar, and to also aid the Lunar in protecting his allies.

Lunars treat this style as native, and may develop custom charms for it that only Lunars can learn. Others who wish to learn Lunar Hero Style substitute Martial Arts for the charms' Dexterity minimum requirements.

This style permits the use of armor. The style counts "natural" weapons such as claws, fangs, hooves, and horns as Form weapons. This is little problem for the Lunar Exalted, but others who learn this style must make due with their fists and feet.

[edit] Rabid Beast Attitude

Rabid Beast Attitude
Cost: 2m ; Mins: Dexterity 3, Essence 1; Type: Reflexive
Keywords: Combo-OK
Duration: (Essence) actions
Prerequisite Charms: None
Description: This charm reduces wound penalties and DV penalties by 1 for the duration.

[edit] Foot Trapping Counter

Foot Trapping Counter
Cost: 4m ; Mins: Dexterity 3, Essence 2; Type: Reflexive
Keywords: Combo-OK, Obvious
Duration: (Essence) actions
Prerequisite Charms: Rabid Beast Attitude
Description: This charm limits an enemy's movements. The Lunar rolls (Dexterity + Essence) against a target's Dodge DV; success indicates that the target is bound up with silvery threads of essence. The target immediately stops moving, and the target's speed is reduced by (Essence) yards. The target's Dodge DV suffers as his movement is stifled; his Dodge DV is reduced by -1 as though he were on unstable terrain, though this penalty can be negated by charms such as Graceful Crane Stance. The movement penalty is not voided by such charms, however.

This charm cannot normally interrupt 'hopping' defenses such as Wind Dancing Method. At Essence 4, this Charm is capable of functioning against charms that allow a character to reflexively retreat.

[edit] Thousand Claw Infliction

Thousand Claw Infliction
Cost: 4m ; Mins: Dexterity 4, Essence 2; Type: Extra Action
Keywords: Combo-OK, Obvious
Duration: Instant
Prerequisite Charms: Rabid Beast Attitude
Description: The Lunar makes an attack at his full dice pool. If the attack succeeds, he may make a second attack at -1 dice; if that attack succeeds he may make another attack at -2 dice, and again at -4 dice and so forth. Each attack doubles the dice pool penalty until either the dice pool reaches zero, the Lunar misses an attack, or if the number of attacks made reaches his Dexterity.

The penalty to the Lunar's DVs from making these attacks is equal to the number of attacks made in the magical flurry.

[edit] Lunar Hero Form

Lunar Hero Form
Cost: 6m ; Mins: Dexterity 4, Essence 2; Type: Simple
Keywords: Form-type, Obvious
Duration: One scene
Prerequisite Charms: Thousand Claw Infliction, Foot Trapping Counter
Description: This Form reduces DV penalties from onslaught by 1, and DV penalties from coordinated attacks by 2. Double the dice bonus (but not essence/wp rewards) of stunts that involve misdirection or otherwise indirect attacks.

[edit] Armor-Rending Claw Fist

Armor-Rending Claw Fist
Cost: 4m ; Mins: Dexterity 4, Essence 2; Type: Simple (Speed 5)
Keywords: Combo-OK
Duration: Instant
Prerequisite Charms: Lunar Hero Form
Description: The Lunar assaults his foe's armor instead of the foe. The Lunar rolls an attack as normal. If the attack hits, only reduce the attack's raw damage by the opponent's armor soak value and the raw damage can be reduced to zero by soak. Roll damage normally; each success reduces the armor's bashing and lethal soak by one. Mundane armor must be repaired before this soak can be recovered, and armor made of the magical materials recovers its normal soak at the end of the scene.

When a person's armored soak has been reduced to zero, the Lunar may choose to target the character's natural soak. Each success on the damage roll reduces the character's Stamina by 1 only for purposes of calculating soak; other aspects of his health remain the same.

[edit] Crouching Tiger Stance

Crouching Tiger Stance
Cost: 4m ; Mins: Dexterity 5, Essence 3; Type: Reflexive (Step 2)
Keywords: Combo-OK, Counterattack
Duration: Until next action
Prerequisite Charms: Armor-Rending Claw Fist
Description: The Lunar drops into a defensive stance, and all attacks against him lose dice equal to the Lunar's (Essence). When the Lunar successfully parries any close combat attack, he may launch a counterattack against that attacker.

[edit] Den Mother Method

Den Mother Method
Cost: 5m, 1wp ; Mins: Dexterity 4, Essence 2; Type: Simple
Keywords: Combo-OK, Obvious
Duration: One scene
Prerequisite Charms: Lunar Hero Form
Description: The Lunar protects those that fight alongside him. The Lunar specifies a number of allies equal to his Essence that are under his protection. When any of those allies come under an attack and is no further than two move actions away, the Lunar may reflexively (Step 6) spend 2m to add half his Dexterity to that character's DV against the incoming attack. Choosing to do so does not count as a Charm action, though he can only do so (Dexterity) number of times each action.

[edit] Running Through the Herd

Running Through the Herd
Cost: 4m, 1wp ; Mins: Dexterity 5, Essence 3; Type: Reflexive (Step 2)
Keywords: Combo-OK, Counterattack
Duration: Instant
Prerequisite Charms: Den Mother Method
Description: The Lunar redirects an attack aimed at himself towards something else. The Lunar must be aware of the attack, and the attack must have another valid target within (Dexterity) yards of the attack. The Lunar rolls his (Dexterity + Athletics) against a difficulty of the attacker's Perception. Success indicates that the attack is redirected, with all of its successes and effects, at the new target. The attack then plays out as normal. If the roll fails, the Lunar must defend against the attack as normal.

Keywords: Obvious
Duration: Until released
Prerequisite Charms: Running Through the Herd, Crouching Tiger Stance
Description: After activating this Charm, the Lunar becomes like a berserk beast. His move and dash actions triple in distance, and he adds one success to all Dexterity actions. Each action, the Lunar suffers one level of lethal damage and may make either 3 attacks at his full dice pool, or one attack at his full dice pool and a non-attack flurry. Taking any non-attack actions must first roll (Willpower) at a difficulty of the Lunar's Valor to take any non-attack action without ending the Charm.
