If object is larger than the ninja, or very thick, DM may double or triple the damage.

-At level 10, the ninja can Kill an opponent with his punch/kicks. First he must stun them and then a d20 is rolled. If he rolls his THACO at -3, he successfully kills the opponent. NOTE: the opponent cannot be more than twice the size of the ninja.

EARTH- MAJ-EARTH, MIN-WATER, FIRE NON-AIR

-At level 18, the Ninja's God grants him the knowledge of all Dragon Languages. He can speak it only telepathically.
-At level 19, the Ninja is able to perform a dragon punch 3/day, and a breath weapon, 1/day. The move does double normal hand/foot damage. The Breath weapon is variable to the ninja's god.

Followers:
-A ninja gains 1d4+1 followers at level 10, providing he has built a Dojan, a temple of training and worship. These are level 1 ninjas seeking the training and skills of the PC. They will train under him until level 9, where they set off to build their own Dojan. For every level after 10, the PC gains an additional follower of level 1. The Ninja must not upkeep these followers, but must provide them with weapons and living space.
