Octagonal Yang Meditation

Figuring out your next move is an unavoidable aspect of role-playing combat scenes. As the active turn circles the group, you’re thinking furiously on what to do next. Sometimes it’s about the mechanics, other times it’s about making it more colorful than “I punch the guy.”

Just don’t lose track of what’s happening at the table. There is little more embarrassing than executing a top-notch Diagonal Monkey Emanation right where your opponent stood last turn.
