Martial Arts Styles in AD&D

Frequently it is necessary to select a style (as for Kensai Challengers or other non-player characters) by form and method.  This chart is used for that purpose.  Roll d3 for form, d8 for method.  Then roll a die one greater than the number of styles present.  If the result is the number one greater than the number of styles listed for that form and method, create a new one.  If there is no style at that form and method, create a new one.

 If in the course of examining this material, you want to know more about AD&D, there are at least hundreds of sites on the web which may help; I'll just recommend my own two:
M. J. Young's Dungeons & Dragons Materials as source material for many campaigns and situations;
and all you need to create a character, Character Creation for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons First Edition.
