Found in the future White Wolf PDF for Count F****** Dracula is the following fighting style:
Legacy Fighting Style: Dirty Fighting (• to ••••• )
Prerequisites: Strength (•••), Brawl (•••)
Low Blow (•) Effect: This suggests a male target, but there’s places on the female body just as sensitive and just as dishonorable to stick your boot in. Nail your opponent with a really nasty blow to a really sensitive area, and leave them swaying on their feet, trying not to vomit from the sick vision-twisting pain. A successful Brawl attack that generates more successes than your target’s Composure causes them to lose their next action.
Shank (••) Effect: You can fight with knives, small blades, shanks and other small improvised weapons using your Brawl skill rather than Weaponry.
Suck it Up (•••) Effect: As much as you know about dishing out the pain, you’ve also learned something about taking it. Quit whining and suck it up. Spend a point of Willpower, and ignore all wound penalties for the remainder of the scene.
One or a Dozen, It Don’t Matter (••••) Effect: You know all the tricks for fighting more than one guy at the same time – how to get them in each other’s way, hurt one bad to scare another, and psyche them out. Each opponent beyond the first you’re facing in close combat adds 1 to your Defense and you can spend a point of Willpower each to make simultaneous additional brawl attacks on two or more of these opponents.
I Said Stay Down! (•••••) Effect: After making a successful Low Blow, your victim has to make a Stamina roll. If successful, they only lose their next action like normal. If they fail, they go down in a mewing pathetic heap and clutch their ruptured vitals, turtling up in hopes that you won’t keeping hurting them.
I will start my first chronicle (1st ed) that might take longer and one of my players wants to play a member of the Brides of Dracula with this Fighting Style. I am just not sure it isn't "overpowered".
Is this well balanced or overpowered? And with balance I mean compared to other fighting styles one can find in other sourcebooks of 1st edition books.
