Also, the core book didn't have anything on escrima sticks. Would you use them with the same basic rules as nunchuckas, or as club attacks all by their own?
Forgot to answer you other question. Go ahead and use the specs for nunchukas for now. I'm not sure if escrima sticks are in the MAG, but I'll check tonight.
that also made me wonder. considering they're just wooden sticks, are they considered martial arts weapons, requiring the exotic weapon proficiency? Also, can you pick up any similar-looking stick and use it as such?
They would fall under the exotic weapon category since there is a whole fighting style based on them. Using them correctly would mean you'd also need to know the fighting style too.
You could of course just go with the ever ubiquitous (and cheap) sidearm...the lead pipe. You can find them just about anywhere and you don't need no stinkin' proficiency to use 'em.

yeah, but I want her to be deadly-dangerous up close. Maybe I should pick it up later, and just keep the unarmed martial arts perk, and pack a lead pipe. Hmnnn.
A lead pipe can be pretty deadly, especially if you have the feat "Combat Instincts". If your opponent misses you when attacking in melee, you get a free shot on him.
I think that could work, if I traded weapon finesse for combat instincts, and just made it part of the story that a goal of hers is to learn escrima. All she knows right now is hitting people and clubbing people.
Maybe let him use the
That could solve some problems, but what would I trade it for? I'm giving up on the soldier bonus feat...but I'm gaining two of the abilities I want. Looks good. Anyone have the book?
From what I've heard over at the AEG boards, finding the PAC sourcebook is next to impossible. I'd really like to have it but none of my FLGS have it. Heck, the WotC store at the mall (surprise, surprise) hasn't even heard of it.
And that's why alot of their stores are going belly up.
they have a preview of the class on the AEG site. I found all the info I need.
Screw it. They're killing my kind of guys.
In the immortal words of Split Second:
"We need guns. Big fucking guns"
Well, I think we should hold off on reqing the BFG's until we find out who "they" are.
Bah. A BFG is a BFG. Unless they're cyborg space ninjas, a slug will kill them all the same
Heh...little does Ivan know that North Korean has a whole army of
at their disposal.
Shit. Nothing can fight cybrog ninjas. Nothing.
No, those cybrogs are tough as nails, but luckily, we're just facing cyborgs, a much lesser evil.
Do we know how many budget/gadget points we're getting for this?
I got back home a few hours ago. I'm aiming to get BP/GP stuff done tomorrow...hopefully.
Without further ado.
Note: gadget points are normal, just post what you'd like and I'll roll to see if its available.
