Summary

Wrruushi Martial Arts is a combat form developed by the Wookiees, and only Wookiees are capable of performing it. While Wookiees are more often known for their exertion of brute force, Wrruushi is surprisingly widely known, due to the natural violence of Wookiee society and rites. Together with the natural strength of a two-meter arboreal, it makes a fearsome weapon. The martial art focused on using immense upper body strength of the species, with emphasis on punches, jabs and throws, and usually only a few strikes at a time. Also surprising is the nonlethal options available to the wookiee using the art, practitioners capable disabling an opponent with a single blow.

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).

If the Wookiee beats the attack roll by more than 10 points, the opponent must make a Difficult Stamina roll or pass out for 2D rounds. Wrruushi may not be used by a Wookiee in a berserker rage. A Wookiee character must have a brawling at 6D before learning Wrruushi. It costs double the number of character points to advance this specialization.
