Water Dragon Style
Immaculate Dragons of Water meld the crashing strength of the tsunami, the unutterable calm of a perfectly smooth lake and the cold,
grinding force of a frozen glacier into a deadly martial arts style. Students of the style spend long hours contemplating water in all its
forms: the cutting edges of ice, the owing and indestructible nature of water, the gentle but deadly snowfall and the free-form essence
of scalding steam. Swimming and sailing have their parts in the training, as a monk must come to fully understand his element. When
they enter combat, Water Immaculates seem to melt away from their opponents’ blows, run through their grasping fingers and then
strike with the force of a great wave. Though a single wave cannot topple a castle, Water Stylists wear their foes to the ground with
an unending series of eroding strikes and kicks. These Immaculates wield “dragon’s claws” in combat, which are effectively
stylized tiger claws (or razor claws). Water Dragons are so skilled in using these weapons that their owing movements
create glittering walls of slashing steel and jade, hypnotically beautiful but of deadly consequence. Water Dragons wielding
paired dragon’s claws reduce the Speed by one and add two to the weapons’ Defense. Water Dragon Style is compatible
with armor.

FLOWING WATER DEFENSE

Cost: 2m; Mins: Martial Arts 2, Essence 1; Type: Reflexive Keywords: Combo-OK, Leader Duration: (Essence) actions Prerequisite
Charms: None

Striking water is easy to do, but it is hard to do more than make a harmless splash. Similarly, soft water does not do more than ow
past stone, but it always takes something with it. While the Charm is in effect, the Immaculate subtracts one die from all his attack
pools, but anyone who tries to attack him suffer a -2 external penalty.

RIPPLING WATER STRIKE

Cost: 2m; Mins: Martial Arts 3, Essence 2; Type: Supplemental Keywords: Combo-OK, Obvious Duration: Instant Prerequisite
Charms: Flowing Water Defense

Just as a pebble thrown through the surface of a pond sends ripples washing to shore, so can the Immaculate’s blow ripple through
Creation. When she connects with a strike aided by this Charm, the very air appears to ripple outward from the point of contact. If an
attack supplemented by this Charm successfully inflicts levels of damage on its target, the Immaculate compares the attack
separately to the defense of all secondary targets in a 3 yard range of the target. If the attack overcomes the defense of a
secondary target then they suffer raw piercing bashing damage from the attack. This Charm is not discerning—friends are as
susceptible as foes. When the Immaculate raises her Essence to 4, she may spend Essence to make the Charm ignore her
companions and friends. For each mote spent, the ripples ignore one creature. She may not exempt more targets than she has dots
of Essence.

DROWNING-IN -BLOOD TECHNIQUE
http://udoncrew.deviantart.com/
Cost: 4m; Mins: Martial Arts 3, Essence 2; Type: Simple (Speed 4) Keywords: Combo-OK, Crippling, Stackable Duration: Instant
Prerequisite Charms: Rippling Water Strike

The body contains a great deal of water, in the form of sweat, tears… but mostly blood. Immaculates of Water learn the secret tides of blood, and they can strike a target in such a way that it disrupts and diverts a victim’s
blood. By channeling it into the target’s airways and lungs, an Immaculate can actually drown his foe in her own blood. After a successful Martial Arts attack, which does not dam- age the target, the Immaculate’s player
(Strength + Martial Arts) opposed by the target’s (Stamina + Resistance). If the Immaculate wins, his target suffers internal bleeding and loses one dot of Stamina for a number of actions equal to the Immaculate’s extra
successes. Subsequent uses of the Charm are cumulative, and a target reduced to 0 Stamina is dead.

SHRUGGING WATER DRAGON ESCAPE

Cost: 3m; Mins: Martial Arts 3, Essence 2; Type: Supplemental Keywords: Combo-Basic Duration: Instant Prerequisite Charms: Rippling Water Strike

Water cannot be bound. Rivers flow through a man’s fingers, ice melts away, and steam escapes into the air. The Immaculate tries to mimic this perfect freedom, using this Charm to prevent herself from ever being restrained.
When she uses it, mundane chains shatter, ropes snap, and handcuffs drop away. It also nullifies the effects of supernatural restraints for a number of ticks equal to the Immaculate’s (Martial Arts x 3). Any valid action to
escape personal restraint automatically succeeds witha threshold of (character's Martial Arts rating)

WATER DRAGON FORM

Cost: 5m; Mins: Martial Arts 4, Essence 3; Type: Simple (Speed 5) Keywords: Form-type, Leader Duration: One scene Prerequisite Charms: Drowning-in-Blood Technique, Shrugging Water Dragon Escape

With a few graceful body movements, the Immaculate becomes more like the liquid element he seeks to emulate. As that element, he can absorb and dissipate vast amounts of damage while suffering very little harm. While
this Charm is active, the Exalt adds his Martial Arts to his bashing and lethal soak and soaks lethal damage with his full Stamina. Also, when successfully attacked, he may further augment his soak by Reflexively spending one
mote per two points of soak. This soak applies to only a single attack, and he must spend the Essence in Step Seven of attack resolution. Finally, the Immaculate’s owing motions make his attacks hard to evade and his
defenses even harder to predict. He adds his an amount equal to his Essence to his Martial Arts Ability for the scene. This Charm is incompatible with any armor that has a mobility penalty of -2 or greater, because such
armor constrains the martial artist and prohibits the natural ow necessary for this Charm.

The Essence bonus to Martial Arts is a dice bonus added by a Charm and does not add to the character's natural rating.

FLOW REVERSAL STRIKE

Cost: 4m; Mins: Martial Arts 5, Essence 3; Type: Simple (Speed 5) Keywords: Combo-OK, Crippling, Touch Duration: Instant Prerequisite Charms: Water Dragon Form

By influencing the water Essence inside her target’s body, the Immaculate can completely—if only for a moment—reverse the blood in a person’s veins. All she need do to enact this Charm is give the target the slightest
touch. Some Water Immaculates find ways to begin combat by using this Charm amidst a handshake or other friendly gesture. If an unarmed Martial Arts attack is successful (whether or not it inflicts any damage), the target’s
player rolls (Stamina + Resistance) at a difficulty equal to the Immaculate’s successes on the initial attack roll, before reducing successes from the target’s DVs. If the roll fails, he takes one level of unsoakable lethal dam-
age. Whether or not the target succeeds, he loses two dice from all dice pools for a number of actions equal to the Immaculate’s Martial Arts. Mortals are less hardy than the Exalted, and those who fail the (Stamina +
Resistance) roll die instantly, as do animals of less than twice the Immaculate’s size. Most gods, automatons and undead have no blood and are immune to this Charm, but some (such as water elementals or creatures with
great amounts of liquid in their forms) are still susceptible and take two levels of lethal damage if they fail the roll.
