Chi - A User's Guide

Yang Chi: You have a number of Yang points equal to your Courage. Yang is active, volatile energy, and powers effects that require intense performance and bursts of activity. Anytime you spend Yang Chi, you take unsoakable Bashing damage equal to the number of points spent.

Yin Chi: You have a number of Yin points equal to your Self-Control. Yin represents passive energy, and powers effects that require focus and stillness. Anytime you spend Yin Chi, you take unsoakable Bashing damage equal to the number of points spent.

Tao: Tao represents your ability to draw on the ambient Chi that permeates the world. You have temporary Tao points equal to your Permanent Tao rating. Tao points may be spent in place of Yin or Yang points. Spending Tao does not inflict Bashing damage. You may choose to substitute your Tao rating for any activation roll of a Chi power.

Regaining Chi: You regain 1 Yin, Yang, and Tao per full night of rest. By meditating for an hour and rolling Manipulation + Meditation (Difficulty: 7), you may regain a number of Yin, Yang, or Tao equal to your successes scored.

Anyone who has a Chi-wielding Power is capable of spending Yin or Yang Chi. Tao must be awarded as a Gift. When awarding Tao, the Character receives 1 Permanent point, and may raise Tao to a maximum of 10 points at an XP cost of Current Rating x2.
