    Hi /tg/,

    I'm wondering if you might be able to help me with something. I need suggestions of suitable kung-fu styles associated with the Communist Party of China during the Maoist period including the personal kung-fu styles of high ranking members of that party such as the Gang of Four, Lin Biao and Deng Xiaoping.

    It is for a wuxia adventure game set in Red China. Political and military conflict will be solved through martial arts.

    I have a few ideas of my own, and I know the style Mao himself will use - but I thought some people here might be able to come up with some really great ideas that I just wouldn't have myself.

    They don't have to be realistic, the game will be in the vein of supernatural wuxia stunts. They can also make use of guns or even tanks and artillery cannon. There are few limits on how over the top the styles can be. Just a general idea of the style and ideally a catchy name would be enough.

    That may be so but in this setting Chairman Mao became the Great Leader because of his undefeatable communist kung-fu. It is not intended to be particularly historically accurate.

    That is a good suggestion! It is something I had already planned to incorporate but these are exactly the kinds of suggestions I would like.

    Yao Wenuan is a truly dangerous opponent! Beware his Ideological Criticism: each round of combat, he will calmly, politely explain how a certain action (strikes using the feet, for example) are subversive and counter-revolutionary. Should any opponent disregard his words and engage in counter-revolutionary behaviour, he will counterattack with the devastating CULTURAL REVOLUTION, a bone-shattering combination that will leave his enemies weeping for forgiveness.

    The game is going to have multiple factions and one of them will probably be a resurgence of the Kuomintang. It will begin in a civil war that breaks out after Mao's disappearance. It is the battle for China's future!

    The factions will loosely be based on the factions of Romance of the Three Kingdoms so I can name the campaign 'Warring State'. I am not proud.

    Mao will, of course, return.

    Mao's Little Red Book is a compact treatise on martial arts and Communist philosophy, readily available everywhere. Most common Chinese folk learn simple unarmed defense moves from it, though it is said that limited printing runs meant solely for the Red Guards or the Party itself hold great martial secrets. Mao's own personal copy disappeared along with him, and it is thought it contains the ultimate secrets of Mao's style.

    Five-Year-Plan Style has an obvious weakness: each maneuver is planned ahead of time ("Next round I will use Grain-Surplus-Strike on the one in green robes," for example, or "Next round I will defend and center my Chi.") If the opponent acts in an unexpected fashion, the Five-Year practitioner may look like a fool as he stands alone punching and kicking at the air. But it is his opponent who is truly the fool, for each round the Five-Year-Plan continues, the practitioner's Industrial and Spiritual might increase! A true master can, through fortitude, foresight, and close adherence to the Plan, perform an hours-long combo that pounds a mountain to sand!

    These are both great ideas. I've been pondering different means by which the PCs might learn to resist Mao's initial style and the Little Red Book is a really solid plot hook I can lay down about that.

    For mechanics, look to "Weapons of the Gods" RPG. Wuxia style RPG in ancient china. Obviously, some conversion will be required.

    Also, Exalted/Scion can do the trick, but read up on it first, Exalted doesn't capture the feel of what the characters can do (especially Solar/Abyssal/Lunars) and Scion can be a leap in the mechanics.

    Also, good old d20 modern can be like this too, especially if you put in old D&D magic items.

    Simple, the Chinese have been finding loopholes with everything Mao did.

    For example, during the Cultural Revolution, the party would go around destroying everything historical, including old artifacts and temples. The way people stopped this was by writing Mao dogma on it somewhere. The Party will not touch ANYTHING with Mao's teachings on it.

    This could be translated as books teaching 'anti-party' fighting styles, with the actual teachings written in code, so that those who don't know its there only see more Maoist teachings.

    Also, if it's a civil war, it's probable that foreigners might turn their gaze towards China. Russian Spetsnaz knife fighters, Japanese karate masters, or Americans and their gun kata all could easily make a cameo to spice stuff up.

    I can briefly go over the idea I have for a lot of Mao's power and see what people think of it:

    Basically his famous 'known style' is Red Glare. No one knows how to use this but it's the style everyone knows Mao uses. It's pretty passive, and it's also literal: Mao's eyes literally glow red. It's basically a form of mind control, meet Mao's gaze and he can control your movements - so unless you can resist it, you have to fight him blind. I want to give the PCs lots of different ways and hooks to pursue about how to overcome this.

    This is actually just one part of his full, unique style though: working name of Red Body Discipline. Each of Mao's individual body parts and organs are actually supercharged with the power of Chinese communism making him a terrible engine of destruction. However, at the same time, by overthrowing Mao's lieutenants in different areas of China he loses his hold over it and the body part that draws power from that area loses its power.

    Old masters who know how to resist Red Glare or who fought Red Body Discipline before it was fully empowered will definitely be a thing.

    What do people think of this?

    Very nice idea, thank you.

    >bamboo pole
    I expect a lot of weapons will be like this but it's worth noting LotW doesn't really differentiate between weapons in a major way: there are weapon categories and abilities that a weapon can have but a gun is just another ranged weapon, for instance. I fully intend to have a tank commander fight the party who uses tank kung-fu while in a tank. He will probably be a Lu Bu reference.

    I absolutely understand that feel.

    Pol Pot stole a great deal from Mao's Red Glare, but his Khmer technique can only be used in the open spaces of the countryside.

    When he stands on his favoured ground, he is deadly. His sweeping movements have the power to reduce his opponent to powerless "New People", and his "Year Zero" opening technique is nearly unstoppable.

    If he is drawn into the cities or tight spaces, however, he is powerless. The secret to his defeat lies in learning the close-fighting techniques perfected by the vietnamese school, who adapted many Spetsnaz secrets to city and tunnel-fighting.

    What kind of martial arts did you envisage?

    I love how they just put random swastikas and crosses on everything to make it look "WWII".

    About the "schewing the old ways" maybe there is a conflict between old classical martial arts with white weapons, and the new scientifically improved, industrially made, communist kung fu, (maybe the new kung fu also makes training with modern weapons).

    For a take on conflict between old, ritual and secretive martial arts against industrial new martial arts see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veritas_(manhwa)

    Ha. I actually started thinking of Veritas before I got to your second sentence and then I saw the link.

    I really like the idea of 'industrially made' communist kung fu. Like, in a literal sense. Like an actual kung fu production line.

    Thousand Flowers style.

    That is all.

    during the Korean War, those US soldiers/marines who were trained in fighting (western style, boxing etc) and tried to fight hand-to-hand vs chinese regulars were quickly overcome. The ones that were most successful in surviving a hand-to-hand combat with a chinese or NK soldier were those with no boxing or stand-up fighting background -- those who grappled and brawled.

    this would translate pretty easily to a game.

    Derp, Hundred Flowers style.

    >> Anonymous 02/17/12(Fri)07:51 No.17986667
    It would. At the same time I get the impression that OP's game:
    > I fully intend to have a tank commander fight the party who uses tank kung-fu while in a tank
    > Each of Mao's individual body parts and organs are actually supercharged with the power of Chinese communism
    >That may be so but in this setting Chairman Mao became the Great Leader because of his undefeatable communist kung-fu
    ...may not be the most realistic depiction of martial arts.

    My God, that idea is so cool. I think I read a manga about that sort of thing.

    Surprised this didn't come up earlier but that seems like a great idea.

    In the spirit of communism, why not just all it "The Way of the People", which received recognition due to it being possible to teach to peasants and workers WITHOUT years of training on top of a mountain. In other words, Mao's style caught the heart of the working class because now with mao's style they could stand up for themselves, something they did not have access to (a certain way of kung-fu) befire because that was something only the higher class had the luxury to have. With Mao's revolutionary kung-fu style, he heralded the rise of the working class after him as well as the wotking class.

    Way of the Tenfold Censure

    A style that focuses only on restricting the opponents possibilities to attack, without dealing fatal damage in return.

    yes, his totaly makes sense
    >> Anonymous 02/17/12(Fri)11:47 No.17987889
    That makes sense but its also boring how about this:

    According to the idea of a worker and peasant class following intelectuals and writters the communist party is encouraging its Kung fu masters to create a new style to be the ONLY one style to be teached to ALL the workers and peasants.

    Every intellectual/martial artist of the party has his own style and they add their ideas to the People Way of Fighting. But they don't really add their more powerful techniques and moves, because of either complexity or lust for power. Also, there are conflicting schools in the Party.

    Finally finished reading this amazing thread. I've always wanted to run a campaign like this one, especially the World War Wulin variant someone mentioned upthread. This is like all the best things about Legend of Koizumi, but with actual martial arts instead of Mahjong. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

    Keep in mind that Mao was also a poet and expert calligrapher. If anyone could find a way to interpret his verses, they might uncover his martial arts secrets. And it's likely that one of his old calligraphy instructors is some ancient martial arts master, pained by the betrayal of his most promising student...

    Please OP, let this be an online game so I could possibly join.

    Anyway, the Hardline Style. A furious kung fu that allows it's user to over come any actual problems by believing they do not exist. Woefully weak when not fully understood, a great master can survive anything, with his belief in the Way of Communism.

    Hey, OP again.

    First - I'm really amazed this is still alive, and I'm flattered by all the compliments.

    This is a cool idea but I feel like I will go with >>17987889 and have it something being worked on, rather than something being completed. I will put this in.

    That's another great hook for defeating Mao's style. So that's going in as well.

    What I think I'll do is have a Hundred Flowers style, which is now regarded as out-of-date and under veto by the communist faction, and a Hundred Flowers Falling style which is basically designed around exploiting the weaknesses of the former.

    Some sort of censorship style is a great idea. I may just call it 'Judicious Protection of Censorship'.

    This is actually a sweet idea for an Internal Style. I might call it 'Heart Shielded in Ignorance' or 'Virtue of the Peasant's Mind' or something but this, also, is going in.

    Also: if IRL it is successful I will consider this but I can't imagine finding players for it. LotW isn't very well known.
