ok so this is my first post. yes im newb. but hey ive playd dnd sice well as far back as i can remember. ive noticed that as of yet there is only one class that actually counts as a wrestler / martial artist. and that would be the reaping maluer. but its very hard to make that class as even a monk. so i took it one step farther and this is the result.

Quick Grappler is broken. Make it a swift action, or else when you can grapple someone, you can try as many times as you like.

thanks for the catch. i changed it to immediate action. since you can preform them anytime even when its not your turn but still only one per round unless you replace move or standerd.
