It looks really cool and I am so keen to play it. To note though:
- There are a couple spelling errors.
- With the Blade of the Wind ability, it's very overpowered. I would consider following Matthew Unger's approach to it, by means of his "Chain Strike" ability, as follows:


Starting at 12th level, when you make a dash action and move
at least 10 feet in a straight line you can spend 1 focus point
and make a melee attack against a creature, you may then
move past that creature, this movement does not provoke
opportunity attacks, and if there is another creature at least
15 feet away from your first attack target, you may move up to
an additional 10 feet and use a bonus action to attack the
second creature.

I just realized after I submitted my review I mistyped about the perfected weapon. Have the AC drop by 1; 2 at the utmost. Not drop it by 1;2 at the utmost. Then it would be -4/-3 to AC respectively.

I see what you mean, I think I will tweak it down to a -3 instead of a -5. Thank you for your feedback, an updated version will be available in the next couple of days.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
