Ukyo

Ukyo is Haohmaru's chief rival in the upcoming Shogun Budokai on Napan. Also of Napnese origin, Ukyo is a master swordsman,
though somewhat lacking in the hand to hand department. He believes in an economy of motion, he uses no big flashy mvoes
and only takes action when he sees the opportunity to strike or must defend himself. This combat philosophy also reflects
his approach to life, he lets things happen until he needs to act or sees great oppurtunity.

shoulder length, blue hair, and big blue eyes. He wears a white lace up shirt, with the top usualy unlaced. He also wears
a large and somewhat heavy blue hakama held at the waist by a simple cord. He wears loose white slipper-like shoes, and
carries a large No-Dachi in a black scabbard with gold trim.

Name: Disarm

Description: This is to force the opponant to release his/her melee weapon.

The attacker must now roll Strength vs. the defender's Strength for damage. The attacker must also roll a Moderate stamina check to make sure he's not disarmed.

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/Sense 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 melee 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: 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.

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