Ok this maybe the wrong place Can the Worldily Martial Artist and the Mercanery O.C.C. be used in Beyond the Super Natural? I know this may seem like a dumb question but its for a Game I'll be running at the open house. So any help would be welcomed. :?

I'd have to dig out my books and check the specifics, but from what I recall it would work well. Since you'll presumeably be making the characters yourself you can select Martial Arts that aren't over powering for the setting you want to run. And I'd avoid Chi powers in general just to eliminate one entire facet of complexity.

I think chi could fit in easier then anyone thinks.

Could it fit in?

Yes.

Do you necessarily want the added difficulty for yourself of figuring out the Chi flows in given areas etc. at the Open House where things will undoubtedly already be hectic and busy?

That's up to you, but for my money, no, not for just one (maybe two) characters.

Comment: The next group of player characters to surrender in one of my games are going to play Russian roulette.
In my PBP BTS game on RPOL if game if a PC wants the full blown version of a martial art from N&SS it costs ALL of thier Secondary skills. But they get the skills form the martial art. I also don’t mess with the Kata thing. The player has to add the number of years the martial art costs, and work the martial art into the characters background. I also limit which chi-powers one can select, so as to not unbalance the game.

That said one of the players in my PBP BTS game is running a PC with Akido and all it's chi powers. I am treating chi like ISP.

I also allow characters to use N&SS martial arts sans extra skills and powers if they have an occupation centered around H2H combat.

As far as the Open House goes, it may be a little hairy to pull that one off.

As far as gaming with your normal group goes, I imagine it would work just fine. Both BTS and N&SS are based on our current, modern world, with all the laws, institutions, and assumptions therein. They each have just a little bit of something extra added, which is where we find the characters and villains. Adding those something extras together should be feasible. I imagine it would come out as a very "Blade" like environment - rich martial arts trained technophiles fighting against insidious, highly organized, legions of supernatural beasts.

Funny you mention a "Blade" like enviorment because that's how I see it too.

Also I post the following warning to my players regarding weapons:

Please use common sense as to what type of weapons your PC chooses to have/carry. Your not going to be able to run around like Wesley Snipes (i.e. Blade) with a sword on your back wearing body armor in broad daylight in the middle of New York City. A concerned citizen is gonna see some wacko (i.e. you) with a sword on his back (or are you the assault rifle toting type?) and call the cops. The cops in turn will send a few officers (and maybe a SWAT team) to arrest you. Of course if your in the jungle of Africa or the streets of Baghdad (supernatural baddies can be living anywhere in the world) no one is gonna give a crap.

In terms of weapons availability, if it exists in today’s world and your PC can afford it most likely I’ll let you have it. Of course I don’t see PC’s driving around a van with a 60 or 81mm mortar in the back of it, but since the IRA has done it that means it’s possible. Just hope the cops don’t stop you.
