Hyuga Disciple[edit]

The difference between stupidity and genius, is that genius has its limits.
—Neji Hyuga, Leaf Ninja Shinobi

When a young warrior proves his worth in the Hyuga clan, he is taught the secret of his families Byakugan abilities, secrets his clan has sworn to protect with their lives. Through rigorous training he is taught to be a master in combat, learning various disabling and reflective techniques, and channeling his chakra to shape the world around him. A Hyuga is the ultimate unarmed warrior, not to be taken likely by anyone foolish enough to engage him in combat.

Becoming a Hyuga Disciple[edit]

Many young Hyuuga dream of proving their worth to the elders so that they too may learn the secrets of their ancestors passed down through their unique Opal colored, pupiless eyes. It is only with these eyes that they may hope to understand the true nature of chakra to use for themselves and against their enemies. From a young age, members of the Hyuga clan train in the ways of the Monk to become masters of taijutsu. It is at this young age a monk unlocks their true power and that of the pupiless eye.

Class Features[edit]

8 Trigram Opening {Ex): This is the path of the Hyuga, understanding the 8 chakras of the body and learning to open and close them effectively. With this mastery he is brought to a higher level of understanding, controlling bodily functions and mental abilities. A hyuga may manipulate chakra paths as many times per day equal to his Hyuga Disciple level + Wis Modifier.

Opening a chakra path is a gentle process, and can be done to the user or a willing ally as a standard action. Open chakra paths may remain open for a number of rounds equal to (3 + the hyuga's Wisdom modifier). They may be kept open longer, but the user suffers a loss of 1/8th of his max hit points per round. Once he reaches 0 he falls unconscious. He can awaken again in 2d6 hours. More than one chakra can be open at a time, but the number of rounds that they remain open drop by one per secondary chakra. Once a Chakra point releases, it may not be opened again for 1 hour.

Closing a chakra path is a harmful and violent process. As a standard action, he may attack an opponent with his first melee attack bonus. The AC modifier to hit a chakra point is +5 (added to the opponents AC). The chakra points remain closed for a number of rounds equal to the Hyuga's Wisdom Modifier. Afterwards the opponent may make a Fort Save (DC 10 + 1/2 users HD + users wisdom mod) If he is successful, the chakra path reopens. If he fails, the path remains closed for another 24 hours before he can save again.

    • Closing: The victim suffers exhaustion (-2 to all rolls) and a -6 to his Con Score. If the chakra point remains closed for 24 hrs, he loses 2d4 Con per day that doesn't heal until it reopens. If his Con reaches 0 he dies.

His preferances switch, (gay/straight, perverted/straightlaced) (If he is bi-sexual, he becomes attracted to animals) This causes a deep depression. If he fails the first save, he gets a -2 to all rolls. If he fails the second, he stops eating and begans starving. If he fails the third, he attempts suicide until he succeeds or until he makes the save.
  • Fire Connection- Combustion: (YELLOW) Located at the navel, this chakra is the connection to passion and desire.
    • Opening: The user gets +6 to all rolls and spell or ability DCs. Additionally his desire becomes so powerful that stopping him from his goal becomes incredibly hard. He gains Damage Reduction of 10/-.
    • Closing: The victim suffers a -6 to all rolls. Once per round the chakra is closed, the user may make a bluff check vs the victim's sense motive to persuade him to give up. If the chakra point remains closed, he loses 1d4 Con until he has lost 3d4 Con. If his Con reaches 0, he dies.

  • Ether Connection- Speak and Create: (BLUE) Located at the throat, this chakra is connected to the truths one holds dear.
    • Opening: The user acts as though he is the center of Zone of Truth, Discern Lies, and True Seeing. Additionally, he cannot be affected by illusions.
    • Closing: The victim loses his ability to speak (especially painful for spellcaster) unless he is spoken to, and then he may only reply with the absolute truth. If the Chakra point remains closed, he loses 1d4 Wis per day until his score reaches 10 that doesn't heal until the chakra reopens.
  • Mind Connection- Intuition and Perception: (INDIGO) Located between the eyebrows and dubbed the THIRD EYE, this chakra is the gate to the psychic world.

    • Opening: In order to open this path, the user must have aligned chakra (no ability damage, poison, or disease) and must have another path open already. He gains a +6 to all abilities and to all rolls. This path cannot remain open longer than the alloted time.

Byakugan (Ex): At first level, the Hugya Disciple gains the byakugan. When activated, it gives the user extraordinary abilities. First, he acts as though under the influence of the X-ray vision spell and grants him +30 to his Spot. Second, he receives a +4 perception bonus to AC. Finally, the user sees all chakra points clearly and can spot whether or not they are aligned in himself or another creature (ability damage, poison, disease). Since he can see the chakra points so clearly, the AC modifier to hit with the 8 Trigrams Opening is a +2 instead of +5. The Byakugan may be used a number of times per day equal to 3 + the Hyuga's Con or Wis modifier (whichever is higher). Once activated it may safely remain so for a number of rounds equal to the user's Con Modifier. If the user keeps it open longer, he suffers a -2/round for attack, damage, skill, and saving throw rolls. When he reaches -10 the Byakugan deactivates and the user is blinded for 2d12 hours. From gaining the Byakugan, one also gains several abilities as they advance

  • Unlocked Byakugan: Passively, at all times you have a 1 in 3 chance (1-2 on d6) to notice non-magically hidden or concealed secret doors , sliding walls, etc. when passing within 5 feet of them.
  • Perceptive Byakugan: You gain a +1 insight bonus to attack, and stun (1 round) your target on a confirmed melee critical hit; successful Fortification or immunity to critical strikes negate this stun.
  • Piercing Byakugyan: Passively, you gain low-light vision.
  • Hidden Byakugan: You gain the ability to see the invisible.
  • Hardy Byakugan: You gain a +2 bonus to Will saves to disbelieve illusions.
  • Natural Byakugan: Passively, your vision is now unhindered by smoke, fog, mist or dust to a range of 60 feet.
  • Deadly Byakygan: You gain a +2 to confirm a critical by sensing what your opponent is going to do next.
  • Geographical Byakugan: From your enhanced eyesight you gain the passive ability to move unhindered as if under the spell Freedom of Movement.
  • Yang Byakugan: Your sight gains the ability like Arcane Eye.
  • Yin Byakugan: You are no longer affected by illusion spells.

8 Trigrams 64 Palms (Ex): The user may make all of his unarmed attacks with his first melee bonus. Additionally, he may attempt to close all of his opponents bodily chakra points at once. The victim makes a fort save DC 15+ users HD. If he fails, his chakra points shut down for 3 rounds. This ability can be used 3/day.

8 Trigrams 128 Palms (Ex): As above except the chakra points remain closed for 6 rounds. Also, the first attack is treated as though the user rolled a natural 20. This ability can be used 3/day and 8 Trigrams 64 Palms can be used equal to 1/2 of the Player's ECL.

Gentle fist (Ex): When making an attack with an unarmed strike, Hyuga Disciples can add their Wisdom modifier to their damage as well as their regular modifier. At 5th level, Hyuga Disciples improves their Gentle Fist technique which allow them to re-roll all attacks made in one Full Round Attack Action.

Visual Focus (Ex): At 3rd level, this ability lets you add half your level to your Spot and Search skill checks and increase the range of your Byakugan by one half its previous range. At 7th level, you add your full level to your Spot and Search skill checks and double the range of your Byakugan.

8 Trigrams Rotation (Ex): This ability may be used at will a number of times per day equal to the users HD. The Hyuga repels all attacks against him (melee, ranged, touch spells, and area spells). If anyone is in melee combat with the Hyuga, they are thrown back 30ft and suffer 3d6 force damage. They may make a Reflex save of (15 + damage dealt) to land on their feet. If they fail this save, the creature is knocked prone.

8 Trigrams 5 Point Heart Imposition (Ex): Once per encounter, you can make one attack against a targets Touch AC. The creature makes a Fortitude Save (10 +1/2 lvl + Wis mod) or die in the 3 rounds. If the creature makes a successful save they are instead Stunned and their physical damage they inflict is halved for 1d4 rounds.

8 Trigrams Chakra Palm (Ex): a monk can set up vibrations within the body of another creature that can thereafter be fatal if the monk so desires. She can use this quivering palm attack once a week, and she must announce her intent before making her attack roll. Constructs, oozes, plants, undead, incorporeal creatures, and creatures immune to critical hits cannot be affected. Otherwise, if the monk strikes successfully and the target takes damage from the blow, the quivering palm attack succeeds. Thereafter the monk can try to slay the victim at any later time, as long as the attempt is made within a number of days equal to her monk level. To make such an attempt, the monk merely wills the target to die (a free action), and unless the target makes a Fortitude saving throw (DC 10 + 1/2 the monk's level + the monk's Wis modifier), it dies. If the saving throw is successful, the target is no longer in danger from that particular quivering palm attack, but it may still be affected by another one at a later time.

8 Trigrams Air Striking Palm (Ex): By compressing chakra into their unarmed strikes, this ability gives the user's unarmed attacks a medium range (100ft +10ft / 2 levels). Damage from unarmed strikes now inflict bludgeoning, force, and magic damage.
