Hopkido? Cool. Have you per chance made up any stats for Hopkido as a SR
Martial Arts system? I want to try to gather some for my campaign. I've
made up stats for the Martial Arts System I study (Cha Yon Ryu - Means
"The Natural Way" and combines Chung Fa Kung Fu, Shotokan Karate, Tae
Kwon Do, Hapkido/Aikido, Judo/Jujistsu, and Bong Sul.) using the system
in TSS-02 (Adam, do you think you've gotten enough plugs within the last
couple of days?) but I'm not happy with them. (They don't feel right ...)
I also want to make up some stats for other MA systems for chars (some
of them anyway) to use in my campaign. Are you (or anyone else)
interested in helping? I think TSS-09 is supposed to include some but
it'll probably be a while before that comes out ...
