In combat, you do best against enemies that focus on blocking or parrying. You are a swashbucklers worst nightmare. You are a bit too frail to hold the line beside your armored comrades, but more able to withstand attacks than a thief or wizard. Outside of combat, your stealthiness and ability to climb just about anything makes you a decent scout. Social Encounters are your biggest weakness, since you never make a sound so can only communicate via gestures or your sheet with common phases.

Armor: DR 4 on Skull, Face, Hands, and Feet, DR 3 on Neck, Torso, Vitals, and Groin, DR 2 on Legs and Arms.

Nunchucks (18): 2d+2 cr, Reach 1, Parry 11. Enemies have -2 to block and -4 to parry this attack. Fencing weapons and knives simply cannot parry against you.
Ninja Sword Slash (16): 2d+1 cut, Reach 1, Parry 11.
Ninja Sword Thrust (16): 1d+1 imp, Reach C,1, Parry 11.
Star Shuriken (16): 1d+1 cut, Acc 1, Range 6/13
Spike Shuriken (16): 1d imp, Acc 1, Range 6/13
Karate Strike (17): 1d+313 cr, Reach C, Parry 10. +3 to parry from retreating; a failed parry means the enemy can choose to hit the limb you parried with instead.
Karate Kick (17): 1d+514 cr, Reach C, Parry NA
Judo (15) Parry 10, +3 to parry from retreating; a failed parry means the enemy can choose to hit the limb you parried with instead. A successful parry lets you throw your opponent on your next turn if they are within one hex and have ST under 23 (this counts as an attack). Roll versus Judo, they can defend normally. If you hit, they are knocked prone.

You have a lot of different attack options, but your best bet is usually a rapid strike with your Nunchucks (attack twice, hitting on 15 or less, and rather hard to defend against).

Whenever you roll stealth to avoid being heard, roll Light Walk first and add half your margin of success to the stealth roll. Very useful if sneaking ahead. Combine with Spider Climb to crawl along the ceiling (very few people remember to look up).

Push lets you blast enemies back with your chi. Roll Push to hit your foe, who may defend as normal. If you hit, you deal 3d-1 doubled in knockback. this does no damage, but will knock the average human back 2 or 3 yards.
