Haohmaru

Haohmaru is a large Napanese Ronin, a Samurai with no master. He is cocky and arrogant, always sure he will win. He has
competed in the Napnese Shogun Budokai for the past ten years, since he was first old enough and won the past four. He is
planning to win a fith in a row, hwoever he is in for ehavy competition. He is unpopular among the competers for the
budokai because of his arrogant attitude. he is a very skilled swordsman and a modest martial artist. He relies primarily
on his sword and when he is disarmed, will attempt to disarm his opponent and either take their weapon or retrieve his own.
He fights 'dirty' sometimes, going for elg sweeps or even striking low or high with his sword whever he sees advanatge.
He does whatever he feels it takes to win and elt's nothing get in his way. He carries this attitude through his day to
day life as well as in the budokai.

Weapon-block

Description: The character is trained to parry melee attacks, even when he/she does not possess a melee weapon.
Difficulty: Opposed martial arts verses melee combat roll
Effect: If the character makes the requireed difficulty roll, he/she successfully blocks a melee attack

Sword Techniques:

Name: Un-Even Fighting

Description: One opponent moves to a higher ground, and defends from it, while another remains lower (i.e. dueling on stairs.)
Difficulty: A Moderate check of Dexterity is made. Failing it, you fall to the ground, after losing balance (for two rounds, all skills are -2 and no bonus awarded for those two rounds.) Must be made by both combatants.
Effect: Whichever combatant is on the higher ground receives a +1D to strike rolls and the lower combatant will receive a +1D to parry

Name: Feint/Attack

Description: One opponent "fakes" an attack to throw off the other's balance. He returns his saber to "home" position.
Difficulty: A Moderate Melee Combat roll is needed. Modified by opponent's Perception roll.
Effect: This maneuver is considered a multiple action, because the attacker will make two strikes: The fake one, and the real one. If the attempt was succsseful (The lightsaber roll was higher then the opponent's roll), the attacker gets to add that difference to his strike, because the defender was knocked off balance, and unable to properly defend himself (-2D: 1D is because of multiple actions: Defending Twice). However, if it is the reverse (the defender's roll was higher) the defender saw the feint, knew not to defend it, and will be able to see the real strike, and defend it with no modifiers.

Name: Disarm

Description: This is to force the opponant to release his/her melee weapon.
Difficulty: This is a Very Difficult manuver to execute, because there is a +5 bonus to the defender.
Effect: Knocks the weapon from the opponent's hand.


Design Notes: Based loosely off the charachter from 'Samurai Showdown'
