Specifically, how do they work, exactly? For instance, Hun-Zuti lists three flowcharts for the two-action moves, one that starts with Knife Hand at -1 and chains to either Draw Weapon at -1 or a second Knife Hand at -1; a second that starts at Knife Hand -2 and goes to Trip, and a third that's Nerve Strike -1 and Lock -1. My understanding is that, if he wants to use a two-action cascade, his first action must be either Knife Hand or Nerve Strike, if he picks Knife Hand he must have either a -1 penalty and follow it up with drawing weapons or a second Knife Hand at -1, or he can do Knife Hand at -2 but then must do a Trip with no penalty for his second action.
His understanding, however, is that he can combine whatever individual attacks are listed for the cascades, and assign the cumulative penalty however he wants to the actions, so he could do a Knife Hand at -2 and then Nerve Strike with no penalty, or two Knife Hands with the first taking no penalty and the second taking -2. Which of us is correct?
My second question involes the Eldritch Society Ninjutsu. It has a special note that a Tager in their shifted form can use their natural attacks instead of the listed attacks, as long as they take the same penalty. I'm not sure how to interpret this however, would anyone be able to give me an example or two?
