I have to admit that I have more or less ignored the martial arts styles. I’m just… not really into it. Unarmed? Pfff. I realize it’s probably extremely powerful if you put time into it, but anyway.
Are there any benefits to taking a martial arts style with the intention of using melee weapons? I understand some of them give bonuses if you keep moving, etc. But I’m curious if they apply if you are armed.
I’m interested in making a character who was a competitive sword-fighter (or whatever) and I’d like to see if there’s any point in investing in a martial art.
