Wood Dragon Style
Followers of the Wood Dragon are mysteries among the mysterious. All Immaculates are curiosities for
their dedication and their great power, but Wood Dragon Style practitioners exemplify the strangeness
that follows Dragon-Blooded monks, often even to their fellows. Their training is no small part of this
perception: Immaculates of Wood go far to understand the extremes of life and death, participating in
both food and water deprivation and glut- tony, and most also consume absurd quantities of
hallucinogenic drugs while seeking the purity of Sextes Jylis. To observers, Wood Dragon Style is not a
particularly deadly or effective style. Immaculates who practice it rarely fell their opponents in a single
strike or send their opponents fleeing a storm of blows. Yet, they win their combats nonetheless. With
the power they hold over the flow and ebb of life through Creation, the wise fear them. An Immaculate
of Wood fires her signature weapon, the bow, with deadly accuracy. Their training teaches them
to fire backward, with the bow vertical or horizontal, from the saddle or while lying down, among
others. When an Immaculate masters Wood Dragon Form, she usually constructs her own bow
as a part of a ritual. Those who can construct powerbows often do so for their comrades. When
using her signature weapon, an Immaculate of the Wood Dragon adds two to its Damage bonus
and 25 yards to its Range. This style may be practiced while in armor.

Special Prerequisite Charms: None

The Wood Immaculate is master of the patterns that govern life and survival. By using this Charm to
examine a single foe, the Dragon-Blood finds that foe’s weakest points. After invoking this Charm, the
Immaculate must successfully attack his target within his five next actions or the Charm ends with no
effect. On a successful attack, the Immaculate adds her Essence as separate damage dice. This extra
damage bypasses armor but may be soaked by Stamina and other sources of Hardness normally. This
attack affects immaterial spirits as if they had materialized. Also, this Charm is only effective against http://shilin.deviantart.com/

WOOD DRAGON VITALITY

Cost: 2m; Mins: Martial Arts 3, Essence 2; Type: Reflexive (Step 7) Keywords: Combo-OK, Leader Duration: One action Prerequisite Charms: Mind-over-Body Meditation

Immaculates see the Wood Dragon as more than the font of life in Creation—they also see its exemplar as a warrior without peer who can use the power of the trees to shield himself. After activating this Charm, the
Immaculate adds his Martial Arts rating to his bashing soak and soaks lethal damage with his full Stamina until his next action.

SOUL-MARKING STRIKE

Cost: 3m; Mins: Martial Arts 4, Essence 3; Type: Supplemental Keywords: Combo-OK, Stackable, Touch Duration: One scene Prerequisite Charms: Wood Dragon Vitality

To enact this Charm, the Immaculate need only touch her opponent, nothing heavier than a caress, and spend the Essence. The target feels a sharp pain in his head, but nothing more. In combat, touching a target thus
requires a successful attack. For the remainder of the scene, the Immaculate gains an automatic success on any attack she makes against a target who has been branded. Multiple soul mark effects are cumulative. Soul
marking is especially painful to spirits—as painful as a real brand is to mortals. In addition to the other effects, this Charm endows spirits with a (cumulative) -1 internal penalty due to the searing pain that refuses to go away.
For 24 hours after branding a target, the Immaculate can sense the direction to any being she has branded. The Immaculate adds a number of dice equal to her Essence to attempts to track such a subject, or she gains the
ability to take part in a supernatural tracking contest. When such a being is within a number of yards equal to the martial artist’s Essence, the martial artist can tell approximately where, and which being, it is.

This Charm has the crippling keyword when applied to spirits.

Striking his own body in a series of precise, quick blows, the Immaculate removes all blocks on the fl ow of wood Essence through his frame. Even the tiniest misplacement of one such strike causes the Charm to fail.
Thereafter, the Dragon-Blood almost glows with life, and green Essence sometimes fl ashes in his eyes or trails behind his body as he moves. While Wood Dragon Form is active, the Immaculate regenerates one health level
of bashing damage on every action and one health level of lethal damage every other action. If the monk is slain, the Charm ends, and he stops regenerating.

UNBREAKABLE FASCINATION KATA

Cost: 4m; Mins: Martial Arts 4, Essence 3; Type: Simple Keywords: Combo-Basic, Emotion, Obvious Duration: Varies Prerequisite Charms: Wood Dragon Form

The motions associated with this Charm resemble both the way vines grow up trees in the Southeastern jungles and the movements of Southern snakes. So mesmerizing are the Immaculate’s katas that she transfixes her
opponents, rooting them to the spot. The character’s player rolls her (Charisma + Martial Arts + Essence) against the Dodge MDVs of all who can see her clearly. As long as the Immaculate continues to exercise the kata,
those whose MDVs were not hardy enough become inactive as they do nothing other than stare at her with rapt fascination. While executing the kata, the Immaculate may speak, move at half pace or dodge with a -2 DV
penalty. Any other action ends the Charm. Wood Immaculates often use this Charm to close with an opponent before attacking.

This Charm exerts unnatural mental influence which costs 2wp to resist for a scene.

add the Exalt’s Essence to the number of successes on the attack (before reduction from DV). Should this value top the target’s MDV, the target is enthralled and becomes inactive for a number of actions equal to the Charm’s
extra successes. In subsequent actions, the target’s player can attempt to have the target shake off the effects by rolling (Willpower + Integrity) at a difficulty of (1 + the successes rolled by the Immaculate’s player on the
