    Default Need a Martial Art

    Please apologize if I'm abusing this forum, but it seemed a logical place to look for this type of information. I'm currently playing in a tabletop roleplaying game set during the Warring States period. I need help devising a few martial arts that use the sword as main weapon. Ideas, suggestions, complete descriptions are all welcome. What I need are four or five techniques, using the sword. The techniques may or may not be woven around a common theme. Here are a few guidelines:
    • Must use sword.
    • Must be somewhat rare.
    • Must be powerful. Let's assume the person who knows this martial art is the last of his clan, and one of top 5 fighters in the Martial Arts world.
    Let me hear suggestions.

    I think you'd better describe it for him, CC.

    Gee, Kenny, now you're bargaining and haggling with people to read your fanfics? That's just too desperate, even for you.
    I just love how you Captivate My Mind

    Self reminder - Update blog more often and continue editing/writing for TOV fanfic.

    Tell the forum your Gundam pilots are named Guo Jing, Yang Guo and Xiao Feng. They'll be all over your thread in minutes.

    Wrong kind of GUNDAM, Khan.

    Looks like we're not helping Dwarin with his request much in this thread. Sorry, man.

    Quite true... maybe I can try to help. Anyway, GUNDAM competitions can be found in G GUNDAM right?

    Here's an idea that I think might be useful. You can use this idea as a basis for more advanced techniques.

    Shooting Star 3 Swords

    This swordplay consists of only three moves. However, most people are unable to avoid even the very first move. This swordplay mainly emphasizes on speed and power just like a shooting star. The speed is unimaginable and no one has been known to survive the 3 swords!
    The moves, however, are not only extremely fast but also very complex and ingenious. This makes the moves even more unpredictable!

    Move no. 1: This move relies mainly on speed. The sword is aimed at the opponent's vital spot and at lightning speed, the sword strikes towards the target! This sword also strikes out from the most unpredictable position and aims at the most unpredictable spot.

    Move no. 2: This move is not only fast but extremely strong too. Coupled with immense internal energy, the sword also takes the concept of the first move. It drains the user of his internal energy quickly if used repeatedly.

    Move no. 3: This is the most deadliest move of all! Taking the concepts of the first two move, you concentrate all your internal energy into the sword. You use all of your power and will to strike; the sword's speed will be even faster and deadlier! It will be impossible for the opponent to dodge as the speed and ferocity of this sword are too powerful.

    This is just a basis. You can feel free to name the moves yourself, explain the different complexity of the different moves, or even change everything! I just thought this up in a few minutes.

    I think so. I'm not that familiar with the GUNDAM series made after the 1980s. My fanfic follows the *original* GUNDAM UC timeline from the 1970s and 1980s (the more serious GUNDAMs).

    Here are 10 ideas to get you started.

    Idea #1 - Attach the sword to a piece of string, and use internal energy to control the string and the sword movements. Attacking range goes as far as 100 feet.
    Source: XIAO THE 11TH

    Idea #2 - Must be male to practice this one. Sacrifice your testicles to "lighten up" your weight, and be able to move much faster than usual.
    Source: SPW

    Idea #3 - Use 4 swords at once by the Left/Right technique.
    Source: ROCH

    Idea #4 - Use a really good weapon.
    Source: ROCH / HSDS

    Idea #5 - You've reached the stage of overcoming the sword without a sword, but use a sword anyway to satisfy the criteria.
    Source: ROCH

    Idea #6 - Your sword can suck away life, engulf the world in its darkness, and open the gateway to hell.
    Source: THIRD MASTER's SWORD

    Idea #7 - Math + fast brain + a sword = Daizong Way
    Source: SPW

    Idea #8 - Use the sword to remove your enemy's hair
    Source: DGSD

    Idea #9 - Swordplay inspired by Tang era poems, Tao-te-ching, the 5 classics, the bible, or the KORAN.

    And finally, no sword guide is complete without:
    Idea #10 - You're surrounded by 15 experts in the field of swordplay. You're half dead with no internal energy. You extend your sword out in a desperate attempt, which miraculously killed all of your enemies.
