House Rules - Kuei-jin

"All warfare is based on deception."

-Sun Tzu


Dharma Rating

  • Requires time (same minimums as '+rules shifter rank') and XP (current*4) in addition to Auspicious Occasion rolls (KotE 52-53)
  • Capped at 5 (KotE page 13 compares 6+ to 7th/lower generation)
  • Rites with higher level than your Dharma Rating are +1 diff (KotE 126)


  • Obligation 5, Soul Shackles (KotE 126): For Spirit Bond, "unmodified Hun" just means "without adding an ability". Other modifiers to Hun value and/or difficulty apply normally.

Martial Arts

We don't use Martial Arts. Use Brawl and pretend.


Works like Totem, see '+rules nushi'

Wyrm Taint

"Kuei-jin usually detect as Wyrm-tainted to the senses of the Lupines - but not always. In particular, the Thrashing Dragon Dharma often seems to radiate Wyld energy, and the Resplendent Crane Dharma Weaver energy. However, almost all Kuei-jin (except those of great enlightenment - Dharma 7+) have at least a subtle hint of Wyrm taint. Naturally, this can be accelerated by the actions of the Kuei-Jin in question - a Cathayan who indulges in flesh eating very likely smacks of the stench of the Defiler." (KotE Companion page 125)
