Default Combat Maneuvers Cheat Sheet

Hi guys

I've checked out all the combat maneuver help sheets I could get my hands on and was quite content with the one from The Mook for a while but finally decided that I needed to create one myself.

So here is the fruit of my labour:

UPDATED October 11 2017, 10:16 CET

Combat Maneuvers Cheat Sheet 2.04
Combat Maneuvers Cheat Sheet 2.04 eReader Version Imperial
Combat Maneuvers Cheat Sheet 2.04 eReader Version Metric

Combat Maneuvers Cheat Sheet 2.04 - InDesign Source File

To Do and Version History:
Spoiler:  

I am glad for any comments you may have concerning the sheet. Also, should you run across an error, please let me know.

Thanks to The Mook and the various others who inspired me to do this, couldn't have done it without the work you already put in it.

I hope you'll like and use it! I personal got it printed in A3 format and use it for my games.

Cheers

Onkl

Haven't checked it for errors/omissions but the layout is fantastic. Very easy to look at and read. Thank you.

It's a nice-looking sheet. I might suggest some kind of separator between the Maneuvers and the Combat Options, though.

Back in the 90s, I created a table listing which maneuvers went with which skills. This let's me say categorically that making these charts is a lot of work, and thanks for making this one!

One errata: Move and Attack has an attack skill cap of 9-.

You should add that Retreats are at +3 for Chambara Defenses.

Some suggestions as per your request:
  1. Under All-Out Defense: Increased: Movement column -- change "Step | 1/2" to "Step (1/2)" to use a parallel structure with what you have in the Descroption column
  2. Under Move and Attack: Description column -- you end with "(except slams, etc.)". Since you've already committed to starting a new line, why not continue with a list instead of using the "etc."?
  3. Under Change Posture -- consider adding info about how to go from prone to standing. It takes two turns (unless you have Acrobatic Stand technique) and it comes up all the time (for my groups, at least).
  4. Add Riposte
  5. Add Stop Hit

I have a need for a similar reference sheet optimized for unarmed combat. The listing of potential options would include: punch, kick, grab, grapple, lock, push, slam, pin, choke, ... You get the idea. It seems we always have to look this stuff every time it comes up, even though it comes up about every game.
