The Schenor are a race of bipedal, catlike aliens who tower at over 2.5 meters tall. They still move with the expected grace of a feline species, and are powerfully muscled and toned as well. Their species has developed a special style or martial arts that takes advantage of their long reach and height. It has been taught to non-Schenor many times, though it is slightly less effective in their hands. The style is centered on keeping some distance between the character and their opponent, and relies heavily on extended limbs as weapons, making practitioners particularly vulnerable to attacks on their appendages.

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).

Using reach to their advantage, Schenor practitioners gain +1D to their attack rolls against opponents 0.5 meters or more smaller than them. However, they likewise suffer a -2 penalty to parry against those same opponents since their form prevents them from retracting their limbs quickly.
