This is all off the top of my head (and some reflect variations on current fu powers/creature schticks/etc.). Most are based in some way on the use of Chi, luck, and Fortune.
Note that some are nastier than others, to the point of being completely absurd; for "fortune points gained" powers, it is assumed for all of them that extra points over the Fortune rating are lost at the end of the session.
[Webmaster's note: he means it about completely absurd. Some of these should be kept to NPCs only.]
Upon a successful martial arts strike, the target loses all use of all powers based on the Chi stat (Fu powers, magic, Fortune dice) for the remainder of the sequence/session.
Upon a successful martial arts strike, one point of Fortune is transferred from the victim to the attacker.
The attacker can deliver a withering punch of Chi energy to a single opponent within view at any range; besides mondo damage, it may have the side effect of de-attuning the victim from Feng Shui sites, negating the use of Fortune points for a sequence, etc.
All opponents in view of the attacker lose attunement to Feng Shui sites if the attacker makes a test of Chi vs. Will (check for each).
Upon a successful martial arts strike, all fortune points are transferred from the victim to the attacker.
Using this ability lets the user gain 1 point of Fortune at the expense of 1 point of a secondary attribute. This is a temporary loss until the end of the session.
Upon a sucessful martial arts strike, the victim loses 1 point in a secondary attribute (chosen by the victim) until the end of the sequence/session/permanently. The attacker gains 1 point of Fortune.
The user gains (5-8) points of armor which do not cause impairment and which cannot be ignored by such schticks as Eagle Eye.
The user is immune to any Chi-based attack (Fu powers, Magic, Arcanowave).
The user is immune to all physical attacks, though not Chi based ones.
The user can follow the "trail of attunement" from someone who is attuned to a Feng Shui site all the way to that Feng Shui site.
Anyone trying to attack the user of this power takes 1 shot longer to do anything than is normal because a continuous stream of unlucky events occurring to the attackers. People trip over things, flies get into peoples faces, get hit with bad stomach cramps, etc.
