Okay. I watched ALOT of Jackie Chan and Jet Li lately. (Forgotten Kingdom, anyone?) And I have a player who always likes playing the Kung Fu guy. So, we've tried to flesh out a few cool feat chains. Bar Brawl was the first. This is the second. This one is more crazy than Bar Brawls, so any opinions, I'm all ears!
(Thanks Gatac for the quick point out. Re-tooled for actual Spycraft 2.0 Rules.
My players are going to be insanely happy now that it's been pointed out. )
