  4.  
  5. Your HP is 10+CON. Your Carry Weight is 10 + your STR. Your damage is 1d8.
  6.  
  7.  
  8. True Grit
  9.  
  10. You’ve taken some hard knocks and you keep on throwing punches. You start each session with 1 Grit point, and you gain an additional point of Grit every time you choose to accept a counterattack on a 10+ Hack and Slash roll, knock out or kill an enemy with your fists, or purposefully downgrade a success on a Defy Danger roll by one level. Grit points are not conserved between sessions.
  11.  
  12.  
  13. You may spend Grit points before a roll, 1 for 1, for the following effects:
  14.  
  15.  
  16. *Add +1d4 damage to an attack of your choice
  17.  
  18. *Convert an offensive Defy Danger roll from a 6- to a 7-9, or a 7-9 to a 10+
  19.  
  20. *Halve the next instance of damage dealt to you by a target you’re in combat with
  21.  
  22. *Cast Haymaker
  23.  
  24. *Switch Float & Sting stances as a minor action instead of a major
  25.  
  26. *Take a +1 Forward on a Last Breath roll
  27.  
  28.  
  29. Haymaker
  30.  
  31. When you want to spend a Grit point to throw a wild, reckless punch, roll +STR:
  32.  
  33.  
  34. On a 10+, you land one for the presses. Instead of your class damage, you deal 1d20-1d6 damage to your target, plus whatever the enemy's armor rating is. You take the rolled 1d6 damage as armor-piercing damage from the traumatic impact.
  35.  
  36. On a 7-9, as above, though you sustain a counterattack or put yourself in a bad position of the GM’s choice.
  37.  
  38. On a 6-, you miss it bad, opening yourself up for a severe counterattack.
  39.  
  40.  
  41. Float & Sting
  42.  
  43. When you [b]enter into combat[/b] with a melee enemy, you may choose to declare one of the two boxing styles below. Switching style or choosing to adopt a style is a major action, though confers an immediate benefit after doing so.
  44.  
  45.  
  46. Mauler: When you switch to Mauler style, you may move up to 5 feet forward as a free action, and you wind up a powerful strike: your next blow gains 2 to its damage dice, and ignores half of your enemy's armor value. While in Mauler style, you always deal +1 additional damage , and melee attacks made by opponents you are actively in combat with and aware of only stoke your fire: each individual blow you take increases the damage of your next damaging fist attack by 1. The number of these increases has no maximum, though they expire if not used on the round immediately after receiving them.
  47.  
  48.  
  49. Brawler: When you switch to Brawler style, you may move up to 5 feet backwards or side-to-side as a free action, and you brace for impact: gain your CON modifier as temporary health, spent before your actual health. This temporary health expires at the start of your next round. While in Brawler style, you deal -1 damage and you cannot use Haymaker, though any melee attack directed towards you from an enemy you are actively in combat with that you can see is reduced by your CON modifier. If this reduces an enemy's damage to 0, you may counterstrike them for 1d8 damage for free.
  50.  
  51.  
  52. Regulation Bout
  53.  
  54. When you [b]verbally challenge someone[/b] to an honorable fistfight, roll +CHA:
  55.  
  56.  
  57. On a 10+, you pick 2 of the following:
  58.  
  59. On a 7-9, you pick 1:
  60.  
  61. On a 6-, your strength isn't taken seriously, and it temporarily shakes your confidence: take a -1 Forward to the first 1d4 rolls of the bout, if it happens.
  62.  
  63.  
  64. *You get to declare the rules of the battle. These rules must be mundane, such as prohibition of magical gloves or a set starting distance. You may also use this option to make the bout a lethal one, if the GM allows it.
  65.  
  66. *You deal +1 damage for the duration of the bout.
  67.  
  68. *You come out swinging: your first attack roll in the bout gets a +1 Forward.
  69.  
  70. *You taunt the target deeply, causing [b]severe[/b] damage to their reputation if they lose.
  71.  
  72. *You steel yourself for a hard fight: the first time an attack would bring you to 0 HP, it brings you to 1 instead.
  73.  
  74.  
  75. Pride Maintained
  76.  
  77. For so long as you wield no shield and [b]wield no weapon other than your fists[/b], excluding things like non-weaponized gloves and the effects of magical garments, your bare-handed attacks always have the 'forceful' tag applied to them and you gain +1 natural Armor. If you violate this creed, you lose the aforementioned buffs and your damage dice is reduced to 1d6 for the remainder of the session.
  78.  
  79.  
  80. ADVANCED MOVE LIST
  81.  
  82.  
  83.  
  84. One For The Presses
  85.  
  86. A win in Regulation Bout will now damage the reputation of not only the individual you fought, but their organization, affiliation, or chosen group entirely.
  87.  
  88.  
  89. Fan Favorite
  90.  
  91. When you challenge someone to a Regulation Bout and win in the presence of money-having NPCs, at least a few will have placed bets on your success: you gain a portion of these winnings at GM discretion, usually between 5 and 15 gold.
  92.  
  93.  
  94. Regulation Expert
  95.  
  96. Whenever you successfully roll to challenge someone to a Regulation Bout, you get to pick 1 additional option from the list. On a 12+, you pick two more.
  97.  
  98.  
  99. [b]Walkout Bout[/b]

  104.  
  105. *You deal +1d4 damage to the opponent whenever you deal damage, and start the bout with 1 additional Grit point.
  106.  
  107.  
  108.  
  109. Passbook
  110.  
  111. Required: Boxer
  112.  
  113. Once per session, when you roll Last Breath and score a 7-9 on it, you don’t make a deal with Death: instead, you force yourself to stand up and continue the fight, incurring a much less severe penalty of the GM’s choice, such as a debility.
  114.  
  115.  
  116.  
  117. Measured Recklessness
  118.  
  119. When you roll Haymaker, you no longer deduct the 1d6 damage from the punch, but still roll the dice separately and take the damage.
  120.  
  121.  
  122. Jack-In-The-Box
  123.

  137. The Ol’ One-Two
  138.  
  139. When you score a 12+ Hack and Slash roll, you may attack a second time, turning any 12+ roll into a 10+ success, and a 10+ success into a 7-9.

  141.  
  142. Chokehold
  143.  
  144. Requires: Level 5
  145.  
  146. When you want to use your strength and agility to choke a target into submission, roll +STR:
  147.  
  148. On a 10+, you pin your target in such a way that they cannot retaliate effectively against you and you begin to cut their air and blood flow off. This may force a target to pass out within a number of turns of the GM’s discretion, or otherwise pin them and leave them exposed for moves such as Backstab.
  149.  
  150. On a 7-9, as above, but you likely sustain a significant counterattack from getting up close and personal.
  151.  
  152.  
  153. Flow Like Water
  154.  
  155. Once per session, you may switch stances in Float & Sting as a minor action without spending a Grit point.

  169.  
  170. When you attack a target that has dropped below 20% maximum health, you deal your damage at advantage.

  172.  
  173. Foul Play!
  174.  
  175. When you are in active combat and your foe does a dirty maneuver, such as pulling a poison knife on you, launching a below-the-belt shot to stun you, etc., tell the GM you’re calling foul play: the enemy re-rolls their damage. If it’s higher, you still have to take it.
  176.  
  177.  
  178. Crusher
  179.

It still costs 1 Grit, as per normal, but you may spend additional Grit points to increase its damage by 1d10 per point spent. After casting Showstopper, you cannot accumulate any more Grit for the remainder of the battle, you lose Pride Maintained's Armor buff, and all healing rolls on you are done at disadvantage.

  226. Playing Referee
  227.  
  228. Requires: Foul Play!, Surprise!

  233.  
  234. Corkscrew Punches
  235.  
  236. Whenever you are fighting with your hands, you may choose to add the 'messy' tag onto whatever strike you'd like, being aware that this usually means an abundance of blood, cuts, and particularly gruesome results to your blows.

  238.  
  239.  
  240. Broken-Toothed Grin
  241.  
  242. You gain your number of active debilities as a damage modifier onto your attacks whenever you deal your rolled damage.
