Description
===========
A Trait that attempts to bring the ancient assassination art of Hokuto Shinken (from Hokuto no Ken/Fist of the North Star; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hokuto_no_ken) to the Mojave Wasteland.

Details
=======
As a post-apocalyptic nuclear wasteland filled with raiders, slavers, and all-around "tough guys," Hokuto Shinken would be quite at home in this setting. This mod adds a twist to pure unarmed combat characters by adding several buffs and abilities via a Trait based loosely on Hokuto Shinken.

Trait: Hokuto Shinken
Description: You are a practitioner of the ancient Eastern assassination art Hokuto Shinken. Your body is strengthened by the training and as your Unarmed skill increases, you will master new abilities that will allow you to perform amazing feats during unarmed combat.

This trait has a significant penalty to all "gun" skills. And by significant, I mean -75 points to Guns, Explosives, and Energy Weapons. This trait is for pure unarmed and melee builds. You will, however, gain a bonus to several stats that would be useful for a pugilist, some of which are only active while equipped with the Hokuto Shinken weapon or when certain skill conditions are met.

A special weapon will also be added to your inventory, a pair of "invisible" brass knuckles called Hokuto Shinken. It is a Quest item, so it can never be taken from you nor dropped. This weapon has been tweaked to allow you to deal maximum unarmed damage, as well as being enchanted with several abilities based on the assassination art.

Passive Skill: Hokuto Dankotsukin
Requirement: 45 Unarmed
Causes an opponent's muscles to self-destruct, resulting in the limb being crippled. Multiple limbs can be affected, but if all limbs are already crippled, damage is applied instead. This skill activates randomly during normal combat.

Passive Skill: Tomon Ketsu Hashiso
Requirement: 65 Unarmed
Destroys an opponent's bones from within, resulting in the opponent's entire body becoming crippled. If all limbs are already crippled, damage is applied instead. This skill activates randomly during normal combat.

Passive Skill: Kisha
Requirement: 9 Perception (base)
An acupressure point which paralyzes an opponent's body. This skill activates randomly during normal combat, always when Hokuto Haganken is used, and at a 75% chance when Hokuto Zankaiken is used.

Technique: Touki
Requirement: None
The ability to project your Touki, allowing you to use your battle aura to launch a projectile attack. This technique is toggled by a hotkey and costs 10 AP per projectile, which fires whenever the attack button is pressed while active. It has no cost while Tenryu Kokyuho is active.

Technique: Hokuto Haganken
Requirement: 80 Unarmed
A technique which causes an opponent's head to explode after three seconds, resulting in instant death. Activated by a hotkey and costs 45 AP to use. It has no cost while Tenryu Kokyuho is active.

Technique: Hokuto Zankaiken
Requirement: 90 Unarmed
A technique which gives the opponent seven seconds to feel remorse for their sins before their body explodes, resulting in instant death. Activated by a hotkey and costs 45 AP to use. It has no cost while Tenryu Kokyuho is active.

Technique: Tenryu Kokyuho
Requirement: 100 Unarmed
The result of mastering unarmed combat, 100%% of your body's capabilities are unlocked. This technique uses AP to increase your speed, damage, armor, and health regeneration for a short period of time when activated via hotkey.

Install
=======
1) Extract the files to your Data folder.
2) Enable Hokuto Shinken.esp in your Mod Manager.
3) [Optional] If you are NOT starting a new character, use the console command "showtraitmenu" to bring up the Trait selection screen for adding Hokuto Shinken to your existing character.

Uninstall
=========
1) Go into the Configuration menu and select the "Remove Hokuto Shinken" option. This will remove the trait and all associated items and effects. When you exit the menu, the trait selection menu will appear to allow you to choose a replacement trait if you'd like.
2) Disable Hokuto Shinken.esp in your Mod Manager.
3) Delete the Hokuto Shinken.esp file and the \Sound\fx\HOKUTO folder.

Incompatibility
===============
No NPCs, items, enchants, etc were altered. The only incompatibilities might be with mods that alter melee/unarmed combat game settings or turn AP regen on and off. Mods that change your AP regen rate should not be affected.

If you encounter any bugs or issues, please let me know so I can try to fix it.

Known Issues or Bugs
====================
1) Effects screen will show "Hokuto Shinken" when the Hokuto Shinken weapon is equipped. This is due to conditional buffs in the Perk that rely on you actually using Hokuto Shinken via the weapon.
