• Powerful Build: The physical stature of oni lets them function in many ways as if they were one size category larger.
Whenever a oni is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as during grapple checks, bull rush attempts, and trip attempts), the oni is treated as one size larger if doing so is advantageous to them.
A oni is also considered to be one size larger when determining whether a creature’s special attacks based on size (such as improved grab or swallow whole) can affect them. A oni can use weapons designed for a creature one size larger without penalty. However, their space and reach remain those of a creature of his actual size. The benefits of this racial trait stack with the effects of powers, abilities, and spells that change the subject’s size category.
• Drunken Strength (Ex): An oni’s body handles alcohol differently from other races. They can drink a large tankard of ale, a bottle of wine, or a corresponding amount of stronger alcohol (usually sake, see below) as a move action. Every bottle, tankard or other unit of alcohol is added to a special pool of points used for special maneuvers that only oni can perform. The shackled oni can have a maximum number of points equal to their Constitution modifier (minimum 1), and they lose one point every hour until the pool is empty. Unless otherwise mentioned, multiple points may be used at once to increase the benefits of the maneuver.
Bushido: The Samurai is a warrior and a scholar. The art of Bushido improves them on and off the battle field. Starting at first level, and every fifth level after that a Samurai gains a +1 to Attack, a +1 Dodge Bonus to AC, and +1 miscellaneous bonus to 5 Class skills of the Samurai’s choice.

Code of Honor: The Samurai’s Code of Honor is paramount to their life. The Samurai swear themselves to this code, which emphasizes duty, honor, loyalty, and obedience. This code extends not only to the samurai’s lord and master, but also to his comrades and family. The Code of Honor is as follows: The samurai must protect the life and lands of his lord with his life.
