Ultra Kick Manoeuvres

by tjedge1

Name: Whirlwind Kick
Prerequisites: Kick 4, Athletics 4
Cost: 3 Chi
To Hit: -2
Damage Bonus: +3
Round Movement: -5'
Description: Few fighters have mastered the Whirlwind Kick. The move requires superhuman athleticism and kicking skill. The fighter begins by kicking into a handstand and then launching himself into a spinning tornado of striking feet. The fighter appears almost to fly (upside down, no less!) across the ground and into the midst of his opponents.
System: The Whirlwind Kick works just like the Hurricane Kick, but its modifiers are different, making it a slower but harder-hitting manoeuvre.

Name: Flying Thrust Kick
Prerequisites: Kick 4, Athletics 4, Jump
Cost: 2 Chi
To Hit: +0
Damage Bonus: +6
Round Movement: -10'
Description: This move requires strong legs! The fighter thrust-kicks into the air so hard he actually lifts off the ground and rockets into the air heel-first with his body inverted. In order to perfect the move, the fighter has to develop the leg flexibility to do a full split and must have superhuman leg muscle conditioning. One-legged squats are popular training exercises among fighters who wish to develop the strength to do a proper Thrust Kick.
System: The Thrust Kick works just like a Dragon Punch. It can knock down aerial opponents and be used to jump over short walls.

Name: Dragon Kick
Prerequisites: Kick 5, Focus 4, Jump
Cost: 3 Chi
To Hit: -1
Damage Bonus: +6
Round Movement: -10'
Description: The ancient art of Dragon Kung Fu is the only system that has preserved knowledge of this mystical technique. The fighter taps the spirit of the celestial dragons, rising into the air in a twirling kick while his focused Chi spurts fire from his leg. The kick is beautiful and deadly.
System: The Dragon Kick works identically to the Flaming Dragon Punch.
