Here is an example of Style creation.
I'll add it to the CHAMPS page soon.
Example of Style Creation:
Mike would like to make a new Style called Cloud Dragon Hachito (Hay-Chee-Toe
means "The spirit within"). It is a purely fictional Style that is supposed to
be lost and found again by one of the characters he has designed for his new
He decides that the Style will rely on mostly Punches and Athletcis (mostly
throws). He decides on the following tags for the Maneuver. Each Tag will reduce
the cost of a Maneuver with the same tag by one point (a reduction of two pints
would have cost twice the normal number of Style points to add to the Style
Punch + Athletics, a double technique tag (-14 points)
Athletics + Grab, a double technique tag (-14 points)
Block, a single technique tag (-24 points)
Mike now has -42 Style Points. To be a legal Style, the Style point total
must equal 0. So, Mike has to chose the associated Maneuvers for his style, the
Maneuvers that will be required for a student to master this Style. He gets back
2 points per Maneuver, slowly working his way back to 0 Style Points. 42 divided
by 2 is 21, so Mike will need to pick 21 Maneuvers.
The Maneuvers he choses might or might not be altered based on the Tag. If
the Maneuver has an identical Tag to one of the Style Tags, then it will be
reduced in cost.
CHAMPS has many Maneuvers already listed as Punch + Athletics Maneuvers, so
Mike looks at them first. he choses:
Rekka Ken (CHAMPS version)
Spinning Knuckle (CHAMPS version)
Dragon Punch (CHAMPS version)
From the list of Athletics + Grab, he choses
Air Suplex (Dogs of War version)
Air Throw (Dogs of War version)
Choke Throw (CHAMPS version)
Disengage (CHAMPS version)
Flying Tackle (CHAMPS version)
Hair Throw (CHAMPS version)
Pile Driver (CHAMPS version)
Siberian Suplex (Dogs of War version)
Storm Hammer (Dogs of War version)
Thigh Press (CHAMPS version)
The Style will also get a -1 Reduction for Block Maneuver, so Mike picks the
Deflecting Punch (CHAMPS version)
Kick Defense (CHAMPS version)
Missle Reflection (CHAMPS version)
Punch Defense (CHAMPS version)
That's 17 Maneuvers, so Mike still needs 4 more to finish the job. He decides
to go with Leap of Death, a Maneuver of his own creation. Leap of Death is a
Punch + Athletics maneuver, so it will get the -1 to Power Point cost for this
For the final 3 Maneuuvers, Mike choses Foot Sweep (CHAMPS version) and
Spinning Foot Sweep (Dogs of War version). These Maneuvers will not get a
reduction in cost, but Mike feels that they make an interesting addition to the
Style. He also gives the Style a little flavor by placing Shock Treatment to the
list. That gives him a total of 0 Style Points and a legal CHAMPS
Now all Mike has to do is divide 7 points into beginning Chi and Willpower
and write the Style up. Mike is careful to note which versions of the Maneuvers
he has chosen for the Style he has created. If someone wants to master this
version of Hachito, he will have to learn the Maneuvers as shown (and cannot
substitute their own versions of the Maneuvers and still call themselves a
master of Cloud Dragon Hachito).
Mike also adds color to the Style by adding details such as History and
Description, Schools, Members, Concepts, and a Quote, just like in the Street
The Style looks like this when finished:

learned to be considered a master of Hachito

History and Description:
The art of Cloud Dragon Hachito, a form of Hachito, was thought lost forever.
There was only one temple in the world that practiced it's art in secret,
located in a hidden location in China. Legends hold that the home of the great
masters of this art was a fortress in the clouds that was once ruled by a
dragon, but of course that can only be legend.
Five years ago, a man known as Sato (Say-Two) came from the mountains in a
remote village in China, far from normal civilization. He claimed to know the
secrets of the ancient masters, and proved it by drawing lightning from the
ground itself to ward off a drunken man who called Sato a liar and attacked him.
Sato disappeared, but many have sought him to learn his secrets, including the
Maneuver known as The Leap of Death.
Cloud Dragon Hachito teaches practitioners to use punches along with grabs
and good punch defense to batter down even the most impressive punching and
wrestling opponents. It also teaches defense against kicks, and is considered to
be a well-rounded Style.
Cloud Dragon hachito, as well as all forms of known Hachito, teach that
violence is not the answer to situations and should be used as a lsast resort.
It also teaches students to fight without a weapon, claiming that to rely on a
item rather than the body is a great weakness.
Masters of Hachito, after learning all other associated Maneuvers, are taught
the art of Summon Lightning, where they can call lighting from the earth itself
to travel through their bodies. How this is accomplished remains a
There are no current schools that teach Hachito. To learn the Style, one
would have to fins Sato, the only known master.
It is unknown if Sato teaches, has taught, or will teach students.
Ancient Masters, characters with a Dragon Background.
"The Cloud Dragon does not live to fight! He lives to soar on the clouds, and
the clouds are friends to the earth and oceans. When the Cloud Dragon is
threatened, he can summon the might of the earth and the
