This is part 10 of a series of documents (last one, honest!) that form the Dragon Fist role-playing game. Dragon Fist is based on the 2nd ed AD&D rules, tailored for wuxia-style martial arts fantasy. The game has never been published; the version posted here was written during the time that Wizards Of The Coast was in transition between the 2nd ed AD&D rules and the 3rd ed D&D rules. It was posted online by WOTC as a free download briefly in 1999, before being taken down from their website. Green Ronin currently has the publishing rights to Dragon Fist, but as of 2008 has not yet done anything with it. This original version of the DF rules is being presented here for archival purposes. Part 10 is the Table Of Contents for DF (which should have been included in Part 1... go figure).
