Buddhism (1 Entanglement)[edit]

  • 3 Treasure: Tantric Healing Manual: It's a manual that allows you to replace the Surgery Tool with Tantric Healing. This Tool still requires access to the patient, and an extended, friendly action, but it does not require healing time on the patient's part, or for you to inflict an Injury condition. Like Surgery, you gain a +5 bonus if you spend at least an hour performing the action, but unlike surgery, you can choose to forgo that bonus and perform the healing more quickly. Moreover, if you can refer to the manual while you're performing the tantric healing, you get an additional +5 bonus (stacks with the other bonus if you spend an hour-plus)

Once per story, I may have access to Quality Tools or Rare Herbs.

Secrets of Destiny: Lovers and Romatic Interests[edit]

  • 0 Disadvantage: Whispering Kick has fallen in love with the lovely Lin Lifang

Silk Road[edit]

  • 2 Status: Since Panther Girl has begun bringing the wounded and the sick among the travelers of the Silk Road to Whispering, he has gotten a reputation as a friend to merchants and refugees alike.

Black Lotus Society[edit]

  • 1 Involvement: You've interrupted their plans; the Black Lotus Cult doesn't take such things lightly.
  • 2 Treasure: You've come into a small cache of Black Lotus Pills. Perhaps you can study them and learn their secrets; or you could always take one yourself! (9 whole pills, plus 1 heavily shaved pill left)
  • 2 Fortune: The Corrupt Priests You've learned of the existence of the order of corrupted Daoists monks who serve at the behest of the Black Lotus Cult. What perifidious ends could lead any Daoist to consort with such thugs?!

Mountain Heart Sect[edit]

  • 1 Involvement: The strange and austere Buddhist sect has learned of your exploits, and they are impressed.

Chi Conditions[edit]

  • Finely-Tuned Breathing - Minor Metal Medical Condition
    • Through the medical practices of acupuncture, Whispering Kick's respiratory system has been so well-honed that he is hyper-oxygenated, giving him more energy and vigor to do anything with; however this requires constant maintenance to remain operating at so high a level, as well as avoid large quantities of smoke and other airborne contaminants.
    • +5 Action Bonus
  • Carefully Constructed Herbal Tea - Minor Earth Medical Condition
    • Through careful measurement and calibration, every morning Whispering Kick imbibes a homemade herbal tea that greatly enhances his spleen's functioning. In addition to giving him greatly enhanced Chi, this tea has the side effect of increasing his sense of taste, so that strong foods are made even more pungent, making it so that Whispering Kick tends to eat more mild and bland foods and drink.
    • +1 Breath Bonus

  • So much violence! - Trivial Sadness (Metal) Passion
    • Anytime Whispering Kick contributes to violence, he suffers pangs of guilt, interfering with his Chi regeneration. This will disappear of it's own accord if he solves a dispute through pacifistic means.
