Mind you, it should be clear that these are not exclusive terms. As it stands, Ro is a punchlock/arcane fist and mixing styles is completely allowed. There’s also the unarmed magus, which is exactly as it sounds, the celestial timebomb, and the bear puncher, which is a druid that turns into bears or other animals and punches things (I know it’s confusing).

Glad we could clear that up. Please let me know if I missed anything.
