The Book of the Stone Fist

The Book of the Stone Fist
Description: The book has no title, it simply bears the image of a fist rising out of a mountain. For this reason it is know as the Book of the Stone Fist. The large tome is about 18" tall and several inches think with many diagrams describing unarmed combat positions, techniques and tactics
The book also describes a set of bracers believed to have been gifted to the priest by Clangeddin that made even creatures only affected by magic vulnerable to the wear’s strikes.
Gameplay:
Limitations: Usable by Dwarven Fighters or Clerics and their subclasses.
Only applies to unarmed attacks.
For unarmed attacks the Fighter “to hit” table is used regardless of class.
No ability score modifiers added for “to hit” or damage unless otherwise specified.
If anything but Light Armour is worn the “ToHit” bonus in the table does not apply.
Stun/Grapple: Creature must have limbs/head. E.g. humanoids, giant snakes, etc. Does not effect creatures normally immune to stun (e.g. undead)
Stunned creatures: Attack at -1 and attackers get a +1 tohit them.
Trip: Victim falls/knocked prone for 1 rnd taking all appropriate penalties.
KO: If successful stun then check for a KO and the creature is unconscious for the stun rounds.
Subdue: If a successful grapple check is made (per house rules), the player may choose to subdue the opponent.
This is a non-lethal attack to the joints (as specified by the player) resulting in the victim suffereing attack/movement penalties as determined by the DM. Choke/strangle to unconsciousness is also possible with an additional grapple check.
Throw: If a successful grapple check is made (per house rules), the player may choose to throw the opponent. If successful, the creature takes 1d4 more dmg and is left prone for it’s next round.
