I haven't played yet, but there's allegedly a game starting this summer, so I've been looking at the various archetypes.
Then I looked at Equilibrium.
So, how would I go about making a Grammaton Cleric, shtick-wise? Are Fu-shticks involved, or simply weapons-shticks? Martial artist, karate cop, or something else entirely? I'm leaning towards gun-shticks, sword-shticks, and high martial arts, but the unarmed fu just doesn't seem to be there. I'd be interested in hearing people give relative merits of martial-artist types vs karate cop/maverick cop in general, as well as how well they work out to re-create the Gun Kata.
If you want to see the sort of thing I'm talking about, look here at the very beginning for background or starting at 2:30, here starting at 2:00. Ok, so it may not be as badass as unarmed fu, but still...this is the sort of thing I want to do. [Background may be secondary, or if need be, can always be from an alternate 2056, originally ruled by something like the Guiding Hand that has been wiped out history-wise by the Architects.]
[Note for the fight at the end: having named characters go down after a single successful attack...that would go beyond shticks into being attuned to a major feng shui site, or several, I would hope...that, or else there are actually fu-shticks that work with weapons....]
