The Darkstalker Files
You have worked long and hard with one particular type of melee weapon: swords, axes, daggers, whips, or whatever you choose. Thus, you are a swordsman, an axemaster, a mistress of knives, or whatever is appropriate to your chosen weapon. A master of the rapier is di erent from a master of the warhammer.
You might wear a symbol—a badge, a pin, a tattoo, an amulet, certain colors, and so on—that indicates the school in which
you trained, the style of ghting you have mastered, or the name of your mentor. Your weapon is almost certainly your nest possession. Not only is it well cared for and of high quality, but you probably keep it in
a beautiful scabbard, harness, belt, case, or something similar.
Additional Equipment: You have a high- quality weapon of your choosing.
Minor Effect Suggestion: The target is so dazzled by your expertise that it is dazed for one round, during which time the difficulty of all tasks it performs is modi ed by one step to its detriment.
Major Effect Suggestion: Make an immediate additional attack with the weapon as part of your turn.
