    Yeah. Apparently humans can, with training, store solar energy in themselves. Dont ask me how that works, BTW. lol

    Just to comment on this - the whole Drunken Boxing being real is open to debate. Certainly many styles have had 'drunken' forms in them, but the whole business of the Eight Drunken Immortals style seems to be a very recent creation.

    Which doesn't invalidate it as a 'martial art', but if it's basically created recently and has never actually been used for fighting, just form-work, kind of makes it somewhat suspicious. :)

    I think it was called Lee Kwan Choo or something along those lines. One first sees it in Palladium's TMNT game, then in the Ninjas and Superspies supplement *gags*.

    Honestly, what Solomon is working on in the Anima game (including his Ki Dominions) blows it the heck out of the water.

    Yeah, but I keep getting carried away. I have far more Dominion Techs now planned in the tree than I can ever hope to actually PAY FOR. But you should see Pax Totalis - When Doves Cry *shudder*.

    Back on Palladium, I never bothered getting Ninjas and Superspies, although I was in a cross-game campaign using it along with Heroes Unlimited.

    Anyhoo, back on topic........
    Yes, I know the voices aren't real. But they do have some VERY good ideas....

    Well, here's the thing. You simply haven't drunk enough to fully fathom how potent and legitimate the art is. Come back to me after you've downed at least half a bottle of Jameson.

    Maybe you ought to narrow it down. :) You know, have specific areas, very specific uses, and limit...nevermind, starting to sound like a pacifistic version of the Hell Dragon Styles.

    Back on Palladium, I never bothered getting Ninjas and Superspies, although I was in a cross-game campaign using it along with Heroes Unlimited.

    Anyhoo, back on topic........
    Let's just say that N&S rather hurts to read these days. And adding it into Heroes Unlimited was...somewhat overpowering. It made for an even worse situation of 'the highly trained guys tend to beat the crap out of the metahumans who aren't rocking True Invulnerability or some kind of superspeed or transformation.'

    Twenty years ago I could have taken you up on that, but you have no idea how poor my tolerance is these days. :(

    No Anima character plan derail. Go to the Black Hole for that.
    Suffering is a fact of life. You survive if you find a reason to endure it.

    For the Palladium stuff, it took me a while, but I was able to find the names of the styles I listed on the net. (I own the books myself, but they're packed away somewhere after several moves.)

    Paci-fist: Lee Kwan Choo - "For example, while fighting in the Lee Kwan Choo style, the combatant would avoid all attacks. Suddenly, she will lash out with a devastating punch between the eyes of the opponent. In any other style this would be a killing blow, but here the fist gives a fraction of an inch from the victim. The defender would take NO DAMAGE, but the shock will cause a stun that lasts from 1 to 6 Melee Rounds."

    Animus style: Pao Chih - "Thus, they concentrate on the powers of Chi and, uniquely, on the creation/evocation of a personal Animus. This Animus is a sort of Living Chi. An entity that takes the same shape of the character's body and moves with the character like a suit of living clothes or a shadow. Once evoked, the character can "see" through the senses of the Animus and use it as a means of performing Chi Mastery Abilities."

    Demon Wrestling: Liang Hsiung - "Liang hsiung is a contemporary martial art that still relies heavily on medieval weaponry and on combatants who prefer to battle with horns and spurs/barbs and dagger-like blades and spikes of metal strapped to their bodies. For example, there are two kinds of practice. The first is when the combatants strap on spurs/barbs/blades with dull points, wear a light helmet with horns and protective padding. In the second kind of Liang Hsiung practice, the participants don full sets of specially-designed demon armor, complete with points and sharp edges that tear through padding. Either way, once attired, practice involves using and avoiding the horns in head butts and the spurs in a variety of strikes and kicks."


    While never actually shown in action, there was a fun Larry Niven story about a guy who gets an alien skill trader drunk and ends up obtaining and taking three pills that give him skills garnered from various cultures the aliens have visited. One of them is listed as a martial art "designed for use by an alien worm for use against other alien worms", and is effectively completely useless to him.
