K20 Ki Characters

Characters who have harnessed the powers of their own inner strength, have mastered the mystical forces known as Ki. These characters are masters of the self and can act with unbelievable purpose when the time is right. They marvel at the chaos of others, watching, observing, and planning their moves with precision. Ki users tend to have orderly lives, and strict codes of conduct on how they act, not out of any sort of mechanical benefit, but as a reflection of the discipline required to maintain their focus. 

Ki users typically have a pool of Ki points at the start of each encounter that can be used to power their abilities. As the chaos of combat wears on, their discipline is tested, and their abilities are used this pool depletes. These classes will also have methods to increase this pool of Ki points based on their fighting style.

Ki Classes

Heroic Ki

Ki users all start each morning with a pool of Ki equal to their Hit Die (EX: level 1 characters have 1 point; level 4 have 4). Every round they experience stress or unease, combat being a prime example, they lose one point at the end of the round. You can never go below 0 Ki, and any attempts to do so, simply fail. Ki expiration due to stress never reduces you below 0. With an hour of uninterrupted meditation, a user can reset their Ki pool to this starting value.

Shugenja

Utilitarian

A Shugenja balances the four key elements that make up the foundations of living beings. In doing so, they can exercise control of these elements within their bodies, and in the world around them.

  • HP: 6 at first level, plus 1d6 at each level afterwards.
  • BAB: Poor
  • Saves: Good Fort and Will. Bad Reflex.
  • Level 1 – Ki Pool – Like all who focus Ki, you have a Ki Pool. Unlike others, you choose to allocate your Ki points between four pools. Fire, Water, Air, Earth. Whichever pool has the most points is considered dominant. Ki points can be generated by spending a swift action once per round touching one of these four elements (touching fire in this way does no damage). When touched, a Ki point of the associated element is added to the characters pool (Fire Ki, Water Ki, etc.). Most characters are generally touching the earth if they are on solid natural ground, or at least touching the air, so long as they are not submerged in water. When an element is dominant, it grants the following abilities.
    • Air – +5ft movement speed per Air Ki.
    • Earth – DR 1/- per Earth Ki.
    • Fire – Resist fire, equal to your Fire Ki.
    • Water – Water breathing.
  • In higher tiers of play, Ki from any pool can be spent powering their abilities.
  • When your Ki expires, you choose which pool it comes from.
  • Level 1 – Elemental Blast – You can channel your Ki and spend a point to make ranged touch attacks at a range of 100ft dealing 1d6 per HD. The element forms into a small ball and is flung through the air. This damage deals elemental damage according to the Ki spent (electric, acid, fire, cold // air, earth, fire, water). Each elemental ball also has the following additional abilities on a hit.
    • Air – Target is pushed back 5ft per 5 points of damage dealt. If the target cannot move due to walls, creatures, or other terrain, they are buffeted back, but do not take damage.
    • Earth – Target is entangled until the beginning of their turn.
    • Fire – Target catches fire. This follows normal rules for catching on fire.
    • Water – Target must make a balance check DC 15 or fall prone.
  • Level 2 Elemental Shaping – You can spend a Ki point to shape up to a 5ft cube touched of an associated element into a form of your choosing. You can spend multiple Ki to add additional 5ft cubes.
  • Level 3 – Elemental Movement – You can spend a Ki point to gain elemental movement forms as described below. These forms last for 5 Minutes, but only one can be active at a time.
    • Air – Flight, 30ft move speed. Poor maneuverability.
    • Earth – Earthglide, 30ft movement speed.
    • Fire – Lighter than air, you can walk across water or other liquids without falling in. Additionally, you take 1d6 falling damage per 100ft, to a max of 20d6.
    • Water – 30ft Swim speed.
  • Level 4 – Summon Element – You can summon a 5ft cube of an element by spending a Ki point as a standard action.
  • Level 5 – Void – As a free action, you can reallocate any of your Ki points between your pools however you prefer.

Ninja

Striker

The ninja are Ki based stealth warriors known for their ability to strike first and end a fight before their opponents are even aware it had started. Many ninjas find a fair fight to be a lost fight, and will employ stealth, poison, illusion, and non-traditional methods of combat to gain an edge wherever possible.

  • HP: 9 at first level, plus 3+1d6 at each level afterwards.
  • BAB: Good
  • Saves: Good Fortitude and Reflex. Bad Will.
  • Level 1 – Mystique – So long as there are points in a ninjas Ki pool, they add their wisdom modifier to their initiative and attacks against flat footed opponents. Additionally, they are considered to have partial concealment.
  • Level 1 – Assassination – A ninja can add Ki points to their pool in three ways.
    • Every successful attack made by a ninja against a “worthwhile” target, that deals damage, grants 1 Ki Point. The GM should rule on the definition of worthwhile, but generally things like humanoid commoners, sleeping nobles, and enemy combatants are worthwhile, while things like a bag of drugged, unconscious rats are not. Many ninjas use multiple weapons and try to make many attack rolls each round to benefit from this trait.
    • When a ninja deals damage, they gain 1 Ki point per 10 damage dealt with the attack, rounded down. Many ninjas find this works nicely with their Vital Blow Power.
    • When a ninja confirms a critical hit, they gain a Ki Point.
  • Level 1 – Vital Blow – When a ninja confirms a hit on an attack roll, but before damage is dealt, they can choose to spend Ki points. For each Ki Point spent in this manner, they can gain +1d6 damage.
  • Level 2 – Ki Dodge – A ninja can spend a Ki point as an immediate action to add their wisdom modifier to their AC.
  • Level 3 – Invisible – A ninja can spend a Ki point as a swift action to go invisible until the beginning of their next turn.
  • Level 4 – Stunning Strike – A ninja can spend a Ki point to declare an attack a Stunning Strike. If it hits, the opponent must make a fort save DC 15+Wis Mod or be stunned for 1 round.
  • Level 5 – Ghost Step – A ninja can spend Ki points as a move action to teleport up to 30ft per point spent.

Samurai

Defender

A Samurai is the honorable, and noble Ki warrior. They are experts in melee and ranged combat and excel on the field of battle.

  • HP: 11 at first level, plus 5+1d6 at each level afterwards.
  • BAB: Good
  • Saves: Good Fort and Will. Bad Reflex.
  • Level 1 – 1 v 100 – A Samurai gains a +1 Dodge bonus to their AC per Ki Point they have.
  • Level 1 – Battlefield Warrior – A Samurai typically gains most of his Ki points at the start of a battle. He gains a Ki point whenever a “Worthwhile opponent” rolls initiative against him within 500ft or enters within 500ft with intent to fight the samurai or his party. The GM should rule on the definition of worthwhile, but generally things as or more powerful than humanoid commoners are worthwhile, while things like an ally egging you on and backing off are not.
  • Level 1 – Defensive Stance – A samurai can spend a Ki point to force an enemy to reroll an attack after he has determined its results. This can be repeated until the samurai runs out of Ki or accepts the result.
  • Level 2 – Challenge of Honor – A samurai can spend a Ki point as a standard action to force an opponent to engage him in combat. The opponent must be within 500ft and must make a will save DC 15+Charisma mod or they must target the samurai with all attacks, spells, or offensive abilities until the end of the encounter, whether through death or surrender. This can only be done once per target per encounter, and if multiple mind affecting effects would cause similar affects, only the most recent applies.
  • Level 3 – Intimidating Gaze – A samurai can spend a Ki point as a full round action to execute a gaze attack against all enemies within 60ft. These enemies are shaken unless they can pass a DC 15+Cha mod saving throw.
  • Level 4 – Iajitsu Practice – A samurai is always considered to have a weapon drawn, for the purposes of combat. Even if the weapon is sheathed or stowed in their pack. So long as it is on their person in some manner, the samurai can use it as though it were drawn. This typically manifests as a lightning-fast un-sheathing, re-sheathing of the weapon.
  • Level 5 – Local Lord – A 5th level samurai is considered minor nobility, even if they do not have any land or political power. They automatically begin all encounters with NPCs who realize the samurai’s rank at friendly. This does not modify any existing relationship scores and does not mean the samurai cannot decrease his reputation through misdeeds.

Wu Jen

Support

A Wu Jen defines her own world and follows a system of elaborate and often byzantine rules to ensure maximum benefit. Many fail to see the logic behind the process, but no one denies the effectiveness.

  • HP: 6 at first level, plus 1d6 at each level afterwards.

This does not require Ki, but you may regain it from following the practice.
  • Level 4 – Curative Blessing – with a standard action, a wu jen can touch a creature to grant them an additional saving throw against an ongoing poison, disease, or spell. Use of this ability requires 1 Ki.
  • Level 5 – Watchful Spirit – You gain the services of a watchful spirit. This spirit watches over you while you sleep, and passively keeps watch for you in general. It can make spot, listen, search, and sense motive checks with the same modifiers you would use.

It will also helpfully remind you of any horitsu you may be about to violate.

Meditant

A student cannot gain multiple Ki through this method but must take actual class levels if they wish to unlock more powers.
