Enhanced Grappling: Wrasslin' Edition

Post by Marauder »

So I had an idea to buff the grapple command for Brotherhood of the Fist members. Basically just add a static 0.75 or 1 to the grappling bonus multiplier so the Brofist can choose to attempt a grapple whenever rather than requiring stealth or a stunned and wounded enemy. You could also add in a couple of new grapple maneuvers to the possible rolls, such as one that only procs if you're fighting two or more enemies that allows you to grab the target, swing them and use momentum to throw them at a random additional enemy to stun the target and knock both of them onto their arses. Another example could be a grapple that has a small chance of passively knocking a weapon out of their grip in addition to knockdown due to the limb being pulled on and rotated around.

But yeah, I'd like to see an Enhanced Grappling/Trained Wrestling ability for Brofist characters that lets them use the grapple command much, much easier and either adds a couple of new possible throws or enhances the ones already present by adding more damage done.

OK, just going to say this, if the brawlers ever get advanced graple (powerbomb) I will retire every character I have to play one.

Sounds like a good reason not to, lol.

I so would love to see this happen. Even just a roll up on the grapple chance would be fine.

It was my impression that there was originally meant to be further depth given to the grapple command in some regard, making it a more complex system overall. But my understanding as of currently is that that particular project was set aside in favor of something else as a result of mixed feedback at the time. Though my memory could be a little hazy.

That being said, if my brofist could chokeslam someone through a table, that'd be pretty baller. Doubley so for powerbombs.

So... btw, since i was just having trouble with this. thought I might extend this tidbit of info to the mud at large since it seems it wasn't known that actually using jabs and kicks would up your grapple bonus modifier so you can actually execute grapples. At the moment though I hope there is a cap on the multiplyer..., otherwise this is about to get silly.

Thank you sensei.

As an addition.
it doesn't seem to work if you battle unarmed, you actually have to use the jab / kick commands before attempting the grapple. Also there is a pretty fast cool down. Highest I managed to get was 1.5 something there.
