Namekians

Namekians are natural healers and strong warriors, able to recover from physical damage quickly and even regrow lost limbs. With such powerful physical properties, it is no surprise to learn that Namekians can extend their limbs beyond their normal lengths and grow many times their normal size. Namekians also have amazing hearing and it is rumored that some can hear across the universe. In addition to the aforementioned abilities, Namekians have great resistance to colder climates and they rarely eat, if at all, and typically only drink water.

Flexible Biology (Namekian Trait). The physiology of Namekians is fairly unique and allows you the multitude of following abilities: Nobiru-Ude, Gigantification, and Cellular Proliferation. 

  • Nobiru-Ude. You can also elongate your arms and legs, at will, increasing your melee attack range by two (+2) squares. When using Nobiru-Ude to perform a maneuver increase the cost of the maneuver by additional two (+2T) ki points more than normal. The target must be within a clear line of sight. The attack cannot cross the path of another combatant or any type of terrain or other obstacles. When using Nobiru-Ude you provoke Counter Maneuvers for your opponents in range.
  • Gigantification. A Namekian transformation that also allows you to grow to usually enormous size. This ability takes considerable energy to preform but grants your character increased physical strength and power. (See – Giant Form)
  • Cellular Proliferation. Also known as Sai-Sei, you can recover from extremely grievous wounds, even amputated limbs. Using Cellular Proliferation, you can use the healing surge maneuver even if it has already been used during the round. Cellular proliferation cost four (+4T) ki points. Using Cellular Proliferation gives you the Combat Condition Impediment. (See – Actions & Combat) Additionally, during combat, at the start of each round before any character takes a turn you automatically restore two (+2T) Life Points. This effect is affected by your Tier of Power Extra Dice. Notably, you do NOT gain the free/guaranteed d10 to the roll that you would otherwise always be entitled too – ONLY your current Tier of Power dice.   

Intelligent Fighter (Namekian Trait). One of the most intelligent fighters in the universe Namekian warriors can devise clever and accurate attacks to use against enemies. They can learn their target’s tactics during combat and capitalize on their weakness. When you fail to successfully strike (miss) a target, increase your next strike roll against the same target by two (+2T). This effect is cumulative and will stack for each fail strike roll taken against the same target. You can increase this strike roll bonus up a total of six (+6T). Any amassed strike roll bonuses will carry from attack to attack and from round to round until you successfully strike the target. If you successfully strike the target or strike a different target at any point you will lose all accumulated strike roll bonuses and the effect will start over.

Telepathic Warning (Namekian Trait). When you or an ally are attacked by an enemy can spend one (1) Action to perform a Counter Maneuver called Telepathic Warning. Roll an Impulsive Saving Throw check, TN medium. If you are using Telepathic Warning for an ally, the ally must also make a Cognitive Saving Throw check, easy TN. If you both pass the checks your target of Telepathic Warning gains three (+3T) to their Dodge roll against the incoming attack that trigger Telepathic Warning.
