I’ve been doing reading and prepping for game, including evaluations of the awesome (and sometimes broken) martial arts styles available in the game. After a good deal of research, I got a feel for community consensus on what styles are broken, what styles aren’t, and what revisions that exist are best to use when possible.
In response, here’s a comprehensive list on what styles are permitted, and what revisions to use in some cases: Martial Arts Allowed and Altered
There’s two things I want to draw your attention to for your own sakes if you’re still looking at style choices.
1. Several styles exist in the Debris of the Fallen Races book. I’m not sure if we have a PDF, but it’s worth looking for. Only one is a CMA.
2. Holden (Exalted editor) wrote several styles that are in the wiki prior to his ascension to a full writer. These aren’t canon, but are considered Grade A, super good styles. We’ll be allowing them. They’re at the end of the list in my post and written up in the Exalted Wiki. They may be worth checking out.
