There are those fighters in the lands of Aelisus who swearing their blood oaths upon their blades dedicate their life to achiving perfection in the art of swordplay. These Blademasters focus on accuracy and agility above brute force and by becoming one with their chosen weapon are capable of fighting with speed and grace unknown to any other proffesion. Able to attack with equal ferocity with one or two weapons, they study the anatomy of their enemies and land terrifying critical strikes to cripple and disable their opponents. Their focus on dexterity and agility in combat allows them to choose various battle positions as well as weapon placement in order to adapt to any situation. Late in their career they begin to learn secret stances allowing them to perform feats in combat impossible for any other guild and become experts and masters in anatomies of their choice. However, these abilities do not come without a price, they must enter deep meditation in order to restore the clarity of mind required for their battle skills.
