Summary

The Hapes Consortium was founded by a group of pirates, and even in modern times many traditions reflect these origins. One such notable relic from its founding days is the martial arts style employed by the Hapans in their honor duels. These contests of strength and skill are often powerful displays of martial arts prowess, and few other combat styles are as brutal as the Hapan martial arts. Several variants on the Hapan style exist, with different masters teaching different techniques, but the form represented here is considered to be the most general form of the martial arts style.

RPG D6 Stats

For every +1 pip that a character increases her martial arts skill, she may pick one of the techniques from the list of the martial style in which their character specializes. Learning a technique from outside a style costs 10 character points and takes three weeks of training. Characters whose martial arts skill is increased during character creation are eligible to select from the techniques. Characters must also declare which technique they are using prior to making the required skill roll (unless otherwise indicated).

Hapan Martial Artists inflict an additional +1D damage when using their martial arts (above and beyond base damage listed for maneuvers).
