Welcome to the tenth (!) post for Street Fighter D&D 5E–a special NEW CHALLENGER edition! I ran into this amazing little homebrew the other day (about 20 times cooler and frankly I think better balanced than what was in Unearthed Arcana this week) and I was like “god damn I want to make a drunken master” and that got me thinking about Virtua Fighter.

As a Sega diehard (*shakes fist towards Sony*) I played a lot of Virtua Fighter and you just cannot beat Shun Di for awesome fighters to play as, the kind of bold character that really made Sega games distinct in the marketplace. I mean he drinks booze while fighting–how cool is that. So while he’s not in Street Fighter, I felt compelled to put him together to someday unleash on an unsuspecting party. 😀

If you dig this please comment or share it about or like it or what have you, check out last week’s character (Dhalsim!), and if you think this can be improved in any way don’t hesitate to speak up (@MikeMyler2 on Twitter, over here on Facebook, and also on Google+) and let me know!

Next week I’m getting back to Street Fighter (probably going to be YOU-KNOW-WHO) but if there’s someone you’d like to see instead I do these by requests so let me know and we’ll get your pick in queue! Also check out the main page for Street Fighter D&D 5E for some new guidelines on how to get the most out of these builds.

Also check out Mists of Akuma! There’s free stuff! ^_^ Thanks for visiting my website!

Outlander Background Feature: Wanderer. Shun Di can always recall the general layout of terrain, settlements, and other features around him. In addition, he can find food and fresh water for himself and up to five other people each day, provided that the land offers berries, small game, water, and so forth.
Bonus Proficiencies. Shun Di gains proficiency with improvised weapons and treats them as monk weapons.
Down in the Dirt. While prone Shun Di’s melee attacks don’t have disadvantage and enemy melee attacks against him don’t have advantage. In addition, standing up costs him 10 feet of movement.
Drunken Technique: Spill the Cup. When Shun Di would take damage he can use his reaction and spend 1 ki point to half the damage and fall prone. This technique cannot reduce psychic damage, and cannot be used if he is already prone.
Drunken Technique: Teetering Monkey Rush. As an action, Shun Di gains the ability to move through the space of other creatures until the end of his turn. WHen he moves through the space of a Large or smaller creature in this manner he may choose to spend 1 ki point. That creature must then succeed on a Strength saving throw or take 1d10 magical bludgeoning damage and be knocked prone. On a successful save the creature takes half damage and is not knocked prone. Shun Di may choose to spend ki in this way for each creature he passes through. He cannot end his move in another creature’s space.
Evasion. If Shun Di is subjected to an effect that allows him to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, he instead takes no damage if he succeeds on the saving throw, and only half damage if he fails.
Hollow Body, Sloshing Belly. As a bonus action on his turn, Shun Di can spend 1 ki point to induce a drunk-like state in himself and begin sloshing. His sloshing lasts for 5 minutes, ending early if he is knocked unconscious. Once Shun Di has used this feature 3 times, he cannot use it again until he finishes a short or long rest. While sloshing, he gains the following effects:

  • When he starts sloshing, he gains 11 temporary hit points.
  • Shun Di has advantage on Dexterity saving throws.
  • Shun Di has advantage on advantage on opportunity attacks and opportunity attacks against him have disadvantage.
  • Shun Di makes Wisdom checks and saving throws with disadvantage.
  • Shun Di is able to perform drunken techniques only while sloshing.

Ki (15 points). Shun Di harnesses the mystic energy of ki and can spend these points to fuel various ki features. When he spends a ki point, it is unavailable until he finishes a short or long rest, at the end of which he draws all of his expended ki back into himself. He must spend at least 30 minutes of the rest meditating to regain his ki points.

  • Diamond Soul. Whenever Shun Di makes a saving throw and fails, he can spend 1 ki point to reroll it and take the second result.
  • Flurry of Blows. Immediately after Shun Di takes the Attack action on his turn, he can spend 1 ki point to make two unarmed strikes as a bonus action.
  • Patient Defense. Shun Di can spend 1 ki point to take the Dodge action as a bonus action on his turn.
  • Step of the Wind. Shun Di can spend 1 ki point to take the Disengage or Dash action as a bonus action on his turn, and his jump distance is doubled for the turn.
  • Stunning Attack. Shun Di can spend 1 ki point to attempt to stun a creature she hits with a melee weapon attack. The target must succeed on a DC 18 Constitution saving throw or be stunned until the end of his next turn.

Martial Arts. Shun Di can use Dexterity instead of Strength for the attack and damage rolls of his unarmed strikes and monk weapons, and he rolls a 1d8 in place of the normal damage of his unarmed strike or monk weapons. In addition, when Shun Di uses the Attack action with an unarmed strike or a monk weapon on his turn, he can make one unarmed strike as a bonus action.
Purity of Body. Shun Di’s mastery of the ki flowing through him makes him immune to disease and poison (with the exception of alcohol).
Stance of the Stout Boar (3). Shun Di’s unarmed strikes deal an additional 1d8 bludgeoning damage, he may ignore nonmagical difficult terrain or terrain movement costs (such as from climbing or swimming) so long as all his movement is in a straight line and ends with him making a melee weapon attack, he has advantage on saving throws against effects or spells that would cause him to move, and he gains resistance to bludgeoning damage.
Stillness of Mind. As an action, Shun Di can end one effect on himself that is causing him to be charmed or frightened.
Timeless Body. Shun Di’s ki sustains him so that he suffers none of the frailty of old age, and he can’t be aged magically. He can still die of old age, however. In addition, he no longer needs food or water.
Tongue of the Sun and Moon. Shun Di can touch the ki of other minds so that he understands all spoken languages. Moreover, any creature that can understand a language can understand what he says.
Unarmored Defense. While he is wearing no armor and not wielding a shield, Shun Di’s AC equals 10 + his Dexterity modifier + his Wisdom modifier + the number of martial arts stances he knows.
Unarmored Movement. Shun Di’s speed increases by 25 feet while he is not wearing armor or wielding a shield, and he is able to move along vertical surfaces and across liquids on his turn without falling during the move.
Unarmed Savant. Shun Di’s unarmed strike damage increases by one step (to 1d10) due to his soburi heritage and he gains proficiency in the Athletics skill.

ACTIONS
Unarmed. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 15 (1d10+1d8+5) magical bludgeoning damage.

REACTIONS
Deflect Missile. Shun Di can spend his reaction to strike a missile when he is hit by a ranged weapon attack. When he does so, the damage he takes from the attack is reduced by 15 (1d10+1d8+5).
Drunken Technique: Grasshopper Rises Early. While prone Shun Di can use his reaction and spend 1 ki point to immediately stand up. Each creature within 5 feet of him must make a Dexterity saving throw or be knocked prone. If he would hit a creature that is already prone, it takes damage equal to 2d10 magical bludgeoning damage.
Slow Fall. Akuma can use his reaction when he falls to reduce any falling damage he takes by 75.

Notes on Shun Di

I really, really like drunken master monks (the Drunken Master movies are all top notch in my book) and really enjoy this monastic tradition. If I were building a PC with this I might go with different techniques but for an NPC I think he’s right on the money — use Teetering Monkey Rush to spook the PCs, wait until a critical or the last likely attack of the round to use Spill the Cup and go prone, then kick off his next turn with Grasshopper Rises Early and either pummel or Teeter again! Couple in some drunken buffoonery and a bit of physical comedy and whammo you’ve got yourself a very solid (and memorable I reckon) encounter. Add additional Shun Di duplicates as needed — talk about a dope bar fight!

Welcome to the second post for Street Fighter D&D 5E! If you dig this one please comment or share it about or like it or whatever, check out last week’s character (Akuma!), and if you think this can be improved in any way please let me know. 😀

Next week I’ll be putting up M. Bison but if there’s someone you’d like to see after him, I am doing these in order of requests (then favorites — Fei-Long is already done and raring to get up here!)

Note: Not only am I not the world’s most learned Street Fighter junkie (I’ve been out of the loop since SF4 on the Xbox 360, and even then my heyday was the original release for MvsC3), but Q is a pretty mysterious character. The version below is built with the statistics for the steametics race because from what I can tell there’s a lot of signs pointing to the character being robotic, but if that’s not what’s up let me know (and I can make him into a human with augmetics instead). Just in case he is Chun-Li’s father in disguise however, he is a detective. 😉

Deductive Mind (Feat). When making an Intelligence (Investigation) check, Q may also choose to make a Sleuth check. After making a Sleuth check, Q cannot make another until he has taken a long rest. A Sleuth check reveals any information an equivalent Intelligence (Investigation) check would uncover, but it always reveals something that can proceed Q’s goals.

  • Patient Defense. Q can spend 1 ki point to take the Dodge action as a bonus action on its turn.

Q can use Dexterity instead of Strength for the attack and damage rolls of its unarmed strikes and monk weapons, and it rolls a 1d6 in place of the normal damage of its unarmed strike or monk weapons. In addition, when Q uses the Attack action with an unarmed strike or a monk weapon on its turn, it can make one unarmed strike as a bonus action.
Observant (Feat). If Q can see a creature’s mouth while it is speaking a language Q understands, it can interpret what is being said by reading lips. Q gains a +5 bonus to its passive Wisdom (Perception) and passive Intelligence (Investigation) scores.
Sneak Attack 5d6 (1/turn). Q deals an extra 18 (5d6) damage when it hits a target with a weapon attack and has advantage on the attack roll, or when the target is within 5 feet of an ally of Q that isn’t incapacitated and Q doesn’t have disadvantage on the attack roll.
Stance of the Stout Boar (3). Q’s strikes deal an additional 1d8 bludgeoning damage. It may ignore nonmagical difficult terrain or terrain movement costs (such as from climbing or swimming) so long as all its movement is in a straight line and ends with it making a melee weapon attack. Q gains advantage on saving throws against effects or spells that would cause it to move and resistance to bludgeoning damage.
Stance of the Striking Serpent. Q has advantage on Acrobatics checks and its strikes deal an additional 1d4 piercing damage. This damage is not multiplied on a critical hit.
Stance Scion. Q has learned 4 martial arts stances from its training and is able to simultaneously utilize up to 2 at once.
Unarmored Defense. While it is wearing no armor and not wielding a shield, Q’s AC equals 10 + its Dexterity modifier + its Wisdom modifier + the number of martial arts stances it knows.
Unarmored Movement. Q’s speed increases by 15 feet while it is not wearing armor.

 I’m starting  a new series of blog posts: Street Fighter D&D 5E!

Each (~weekly) entry will feature a different member of the Street Fighter cast built using Mists of Akuma (my eastern fantasy noir steampunk campaign setting) to provide you with a badass NPC to assail your adventuring group with!

It is only fitting that we begin this process with the Great Demon himself! If there’s a particular character you’d like to see, let me know and I’ll move them up the queue. 😀

*Due to popular demand, Akuma’s now got a raging demon feature! I’ve also taken the opportunity to up his AC a bit (that Haitoku-derived reduced damage helps, but he still felt a little flimsy to me for a challenge 16 foe).
*A user on the EN World forums brought up that his hit points and damage were on the low side. While that’s intentional (he has lots of little extra bits and pieces that interact with one another) I was still feeling a little wishy-washy on the low hp total and damage output so I went ahead and gave him higher Strength and Constitution (guess he just rolled well when generating attributes amirite? 😉 ) to bring those up slightly.

Hated. Akuma is at disadvantage when making Wisdom or Charisma checks against any humanoid that doesn’t also have the hated condition but he cannot suffer disadvantage on Intimidation checks.
High Haitoku. Akuma gains a +10 ft. bonus to speed in combat, +1 to Strength and Dexterity, he ignores the first 3 points of damage from attacks and spells, but has a visible physical mutation, and suffers disadvantage on Dignity ability checks and saving throws. When Akuma’s anger is raised or he begins to focus his ki, scarlet flames lick and dance around him and his body stretches and distorts to appear larger and more demonic.
Ki (16 points). Akuma harnesses the mystic energy of ki and can spend these points to fuel various ki features. When he spends a ki point, it is unavailable until he finishes a short or long rest, at the end of which he draws all of his expended ki back into himself.

Martial Arts. Akuma can use Dexterity instead of Strength for the attack and damage rolls of his unarmed strikes and monk weapons, and he rolls a 1d8 in place of the normal damage of his unarmed strike or monk weapons.

He gains advantage on Intimidation checks and may roar as a bonus action to give enemies within 20 feet of him the frightened condition for 1d4 rounds; a DC 16 Wisdom saving throw resists the effect. After using this feature, Akuma cannot do so again until he has completed a long rest.
Stance of the Waning Moon (2). Akuma’s unarmed strikes deal an additional 1d6 necrotic damage and he gains resistance to necrotic damage.
Stance of the Wicked Oni (3). Akuma’s unarmed strikes deal an additional 1d8 damage to humanoids (this damage is multiplied on a critical hit). By spending a bonus action, he can grant a creature that can see him the frightened condition for 5 rounds. A creature that succeeds on a DC 20 Wisdom saving throw made at the end of each of its turns negates this condition. Once a creature has been frightened by Akuma’s oni stance, it cannot be frightened by it again for 24 hours. In addition, he gains advantage on saving throws made to resist the abilities and spells of oni and by spending an action, Akuma may use his Haitoku score in place of any other one score of his choice for 5 rounds.

Tongue of the Sun and Moon. Akuma can touch the ki of other minds so that he understands all spoken languages. Moreover, any creature that can understand a language can understand what he says.
Unarmored Defense. While he is wearing no armor and not wielding a shield, Akuma’s AC equals 10 + his Dexterity modifier + his Wisdom modifier + the number of martial arts stances he knows.

Unarmed Strike. Melee Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (1d8+7) magical bludgeoning damage plus 4 (1d8) damage to humanoids, 3 (1d6) necrotic damage, and 2 (1d4) slashing damage.

Slow Fall. Akuma can use his reaction when he falls to reduce any falling damage he takes by 80.

Haitoku Prayer Beads

Legendary

These dark wooden beads have been used by Akuma to focus prayers and spiritual energy for decades, rapidly instilled with fell power by the shed blood of his enemies. Haitoku prayer beads have 8 prayer points; Akuma has attuned them to grant sacred armor (2 points), sacred skill Perception (2 points), and sacred strike x2 (4 points). In addition, they allow grant him the following features:

Shakunetsu Hadoken (Scorching Heat Surge Fist). Akuma is able to use his Fury of Blows monk feature in conjunction with eldritch blast (gaining two additional eldritch blasts as a bonus action) though when doing so all of his beams must target the same creature and he deals fire and necrotic damage instead of force damage. Once Akuma has used this feature, he cannot do so again for 1 minute or until he is reduced to 20 hp or less.

Shun Goku Satsu (Raging Demon). As an action, Akuma may spend 6 ki points to become incorporeal and move towards a target enemy spending movement speed as part of this action. This movement does not provoke opportunity attacks and ignores difficult terrain. If this puts him within melee range of an enemy, a grapple attempt is made with advantage. On a success, the opponent makes a DC 15 Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, the opponent is reduced to 0 hp and knocked prone. On a successful save, the target takes 10d10 necrotic damage and is knocked prone. Akuma’s remaining movement for the turn is reduced to 0 and he cannot take reactions until the start of his next turn. Once Akuma has used this feature, he cannot do so again until he has finished a long rest.
