Default Re: [Q] Acrobatics

Well I want to become a ninja because sykoi said it would be ahrd to do it!

Flips and lunges are i think a must for evasion and escaping froma fight. Buthsould be a ninja trained skill.
ie: anyone can jupm but ninjas can jump higher or roll faster ect ect

Flips are purely theatrical. Though it's good to be able to do them, has very little purpose in a real fight, as other similar, easier techniques are more effective.

That's true, though it would maybe be effective for someone skilled enough to get 4-5 steps up a wall could backflip off of it, though this would be a very very difficult action to perform. You could use this to evade enemies while being chased towards a wall. Even then the flip is not nessecary, a simple leap would suffice, and probably even be better, as a flip would cause you to lose awareness of where your enemy is. So, basically, flips serve no useful purpose...

Exactly. They feel good, look good, taste good, but serve no purpose.

There are a lot of flip-based kicks in kung fu, I don't know about ninjutsu and karate and so on, I didn't do them for very long.

This is a good idea, in the game Dungeon Lords you can do actual forward flips and side rolls and incorporate them into fighting. Makes combat a lot more interesting.

Yes rolls are used in most of the Japanese Martial arts, a as a breakfall and a evasion technique. At the very least I would like to see rolls implemented

Rolls are incredibly important for samurai stuff, especially when fighting multiple people.

Default Re: [Q] Acrobatics

I'm bringing this back, it's missing sykoi's input. Will acrobatics (leaping, rolling, running a few steps up short walls to grab a ledge) be possible modalities for training? Will rooftops be an accessible means of discreet travel across a city? If a guard or govenment official sees you running around up there will you get into trouble?

I'm not sure about acrobatics, thats something that could be a wonderful addition, but also a pain to actually add... But as for running on roof tops? Yes, oh yes - this is one of the many things that I have wanted to see in Tatsumaki since the idea hit me.
