The use of the Ki can manifest itself in the most incredible ways. Lacking a soul also has other consequences. To begin with, similar to the way people with the capacity to feel Ki perceive it like a spiritual heat, undead beings or those without a soul give off an intense psychic cold.
Therefore, just as the power of a person can be measured by examining the level of his energy, the same measuring can be done by examining the glacial aura of a necromantic creature.
Also, if a being without a soul is affected by some ability or attack that diminishes the creatures Ki points, it suffers 5 points of Damage for each point of Ki that it should have lost. Nemesis The nature of Nemesis is an enigma unto itself.
Although there are dozens of philosophical theories that, in some shape or form, approach the true origin of Ki, there is not a single one that dares to assert for sure the same of Nemesis. For that reason, even for the few occultists or supernatural investigators who know something about it, its origin and function is an unsolvable mystery. At the moment, the most frequently proposed theory is that Nemesis is a force opposed to all the principles of existence, something foreign to the world and the essence of the vital flow that Ki represents.
It is even beyond the emptiness: an absolute nothing that denies and devours reality itself. It does not even find itself properly bound to the undead; even necromantic beings, normally the most attuned to Nemesis, are not in reality associated with it. Just as certain people can control Ki, there are a few people able to control the energies of Nemesis although to a much smaller degree.
When doing so, they use their power to create a spiritual emptiness in their bodies and souls, vortices that allow them to annul and destroy any force.
This emptiness is the reason why the use of Ki and Nemesis are considered opposite principles: whereas the first depends on balance and synchronization between body and mind, the other completely breaks the ties of the soul and spirit from any earthly form. It represents the characters natural knowledge about Ki, his innate talent to understand and use the energy that comes together in his body and soul in a balanced way.
The higher the MK value a character has, the greater his aptitude will be for the use, control, and understanding of Ki. Martial Knowledge is represented by a numerical value, a score that is used to acquire knowledge of the Ki Dominion, such as Ki Abilities and special Techniques. Unlike what happens with Development Points, the Accumulation and the Ki of a character cannot be increased using Martial Knowledge. Only four ways exist to obtain or increase MK, which are as follows: Class: By the mere fact of belonging to a certain class, a character obtains MK points.
Each class provides a certain amount of MK at first level, and characters obtain additional points every time they go up a level, as indicated in the description of the classes in Chapter 3 of Anima: Beyond Fantasy.
This bonus can only be obtained during the creation of the character, and it does not get added again when the character goes up a level. See Anima: Beyond Fantasy, page This benefit is only obtained at the moment the character masters a certain style, and not every time the character goes up a level.
Each 5 DP that he invests for this purpose provides 5 MK, without concern for the class or Archetype to which he belongs.
This cost falls under Primary Combat Abilities, and it cannot surpass one tenth of the total Development Points of the character. That is to say, a 1st-level character could invest up to 60 DP to increase his MK, whereas a 5th-level character could spend up to DP to increase his MK.
Ki Points and Ki Accumulation The number of Ki points establishes the Ki potential of a character, the overall energy reserve which he has. The greater the amount, the greater the number of Techniques and Ki Abilities he will be able to activate. On the other hand, Ki Accumulation is the faculty that a character has to harness his Ki points for use.
The greater the Accumulation, the faster he will be able to trigger his Techniques or Abilities. The Ki points and Ki Accumulation of a character can be increased by investing a certain amount of DP, at costs defined by the class of the character in question. Optional Ki Rules: If you prefer, a character can unify the value of all his Ki points to form a single mass called a Ki Reserve.
Using this method makes calculating how many points a character has left after using one of his Techniques or Abilities much easier. Characters still have to use different Accumulations to execute their Techniques, but instead of spending Ki that depends on certain Characteristics, the points are subtracted from their total Ki Reserve.
If the Unification of Ki Points optional rule is being used, all these values would be added together to arrive at a Ki Reserve of 39 points. In the case of using a Technique that requires Strength 4, Agility 5, and Power 5, using it would require spending 14 points from the Ki Reserve. Accumulation of Ki: When a character wants to make use of an Ability or Technique that has a cost in Ki points, he cannot simply subtract these points from his Ki Reserve; first he will have to Accumulate the amount necessary to activate the Ability or Technique.
Thus, a character with a Ki Accumulation of Strength 3 and Agility 4 could use up to 3 points of Ki Strength and 4 of Ki Agility in a single turn of Accumulation, 6 and 8, respectively, if he Accumulates for two turns, 9 and 12 if he Accumulates for three turns, and so on. Ki is only Accumulated from the desired Characteristics and doesnt have to be drawn from all of them at once. A character is able to Accumulate Ki at any moment, since doing so is a Passive and innate Action. Whenever he wishes to do so, he can begin to concentrate and Accumulate his Ki.
In spite of everything, to fully Accumulate is a Complete Action, so if he takes any other action even a passive one like defending himself , the points that are accumulated during that turn are reduced to half. The reduction of Accumulation only takes place when a turn is completed, so if the character counts on having sufficient Accumulated Ki to carry out the Technique or Ki Ability that he intends to use, he could still use it if he executed other Actions during that turn.
Finally, it is necessary to keep in mind that a character cannot stop Accumulating Ki, not even during an action, if he wants to maintain the points that he has already Accumulated. In the turn he stops Accumulating, he will have to use the Ki points, or all the Accumulated points will return to his Ki Reserve, and he will lose a point in the process. Consequences of the Accumulation When a character begins to Accumulate Ki, he increases his levels of energy enormously, amplifying his spiritual force to incredible levels.
When concentrating power in this way, a moment is reached when the power is so great that it is expressed in the physical world in various ways and can become visible and even cause alterations in the surroundings. As a result, when a character begins to Accumulate Ki, it is necessary to know the total amount of points that he has gathered.
The higher the amount is, the greater the side effects that the triggered power produces. Keep in mind that the following rules detail merely collateral effects that the Accumulation of energy entails and not something that characters can control in themselves. It is also not viable for a character who is concentrating energy at great speed to begin to Accumulate it more slowly at a later time to obtain special benefits because of the Accumulated energy.
If he attempted to do so, his Ki flow would stop and he would immediately lose any advantage that his energy could provide to him. The atmosphere is disturbed slightly, but the energy does not really cause repercussions in the physical world yet.
A character who Accumulates this amount of power and does not release it by giving it some use loses a point of Ki. A character who Accumulates this amount of power and does not release it by giving it some use loses 5 points of Ki.
