|Traits: 2 pts: Zealot, Enlightened |
|* Note: During times of famine or uprising, groups of young men would form into societies and associations, taking colorful names like The Red Scarves, The Plum Blossom Society or The Red Lantern Association. These young men would band together under a master and learn his technique. Going from town to town, they would preach their cause--sometimes for the government, sometimes against it--while recruiting new members with demonstrations of the association's martial prowess (and often getting into trouble with the local authorities. Hence their name!)|

|* Note: Certain branches of rebel boxers broke away from the mundane societies, preaching that the training of the spirit--not the body--was the pinnacle of their art. They also made wild claims that belief in their doctrine would provide invulnerability and immortality to the practitioner. Those that die in battle? Their belief was impure.|
