0 points Allow up to 2 degrees of attacks [maximum damage threshold of Degree 2]
5 points Allow up to 5 degrees of attacks [maximum damage threshold of Degree 3] 10 points ... Allow up to 7 degrees of attacks [maximum damage threshold of Degree 4] 20 points... Allow up to 11 degrees of attacks [maximum damage threshold of Degree 4]
The degree thresholds may be associated with any of the following skills: Martial Arts Striking, Martial Arts Sweeping, Nerve Strikes, and Locking Holds (in any combination; so if a character is taking 7 degrees of attacks, he could take 4 in Martial Arts Striking, 2 in Martial Arts Sweeping, and 1 in Locking Holds). The damage threshold for Nerve Strikes must be less than or equal to the damage threshold for Martial Arts Striking and the damage thresholds for Locking Holds must also be less than or equal to the damage thresholds for Martial Arts Sweeping. The martial arts attacks are cumulative, so if a player wishes to allow Degree 3 Martial Arts Striking attacks he can also use the Degree 1 and Degree 2 damage thresholds if he wishes. Optional Rule [Core]: If the Gamemaster desires, he can allow a player to receive a special +5 modification to OB for each damage threshold below the maximum for his style that he decides to use in an attack.
