Jade Mountain Style

Earth, Physique

Any Armor, Club or Sword.

The Earth Dragon is relentless, and cannot be deterred from their motions, or moved when they do not want to be. Gain +2 defense against any actions to either forcibly move (knockback), or halt the movement of the stylist.

As well, the stylist becomes encased in armor if they do not have any. It has the same stats as artifact Heavy Armor. (+2 Soak, -1 Evasion.)

However, practitioners of the Jade Mountain Style must keep their feet stabilized on solid ground. Breaking that connection for longer than a simple jump will render the benefits of this style void, and unable to activate techniques.

Earth Aspect Dragonbloods in totemic Anima Flare are always in connection with the pole of Earth and may ignore this requirement.

Boulder-Crushing Force

Cost: 2m
Type: Supplemental
Mins: Earth 2

Striking with overwhelming force, the stylist may target Soak instead of DV on their attack.

Pasiap Still Stands

Cost: (2m per dmg)
Type: Reflexive; Turn
Mins: Earth 2

The Stylist reinforces themselves with the strength of the earth itself. When receiving an attack, or defending another, they may reduce the damage dealt to them by up to (Essence), at a cost of 2m per health.

This damage is redistributed into the ground below the stylist, cracking, tearing, and rippling through the earth or flooring—potentially shattering it.

Lesser Technique 3

Cost: 3m
Type: Supplemental.
Mins: Earth 3

########## Greater Techniques

Falling Rockslide Onslaught

Cost: 7m
Type: Supplemental
Mins: Earth 4

The Stylist strikes the environment, sending a shock-wave of broken earth to their target as a Ranged attack vs. Evasion.

Should the target fail, they will become trapped in an avalanche of debris, unable to move for at least (Essence) rounds.

Regardless, the targeted area becomes a shattered wasteland of an environmental hazard, requiring an Athletics roll to traverse.

Greater Technique 2

Cost: 7m
Type: Supplemental
Mins: Earth 4
