Prestige Path: Weaponmaster


This was created by combining the 3.5e Weaponmaster and the 4e Blademaster.

“My blade is exquisite and deadly, as much a work of art as it is a weapon. And in my hands, it is unstoppable”
– Swordmaster Torc

You and your weapon are as one. You are a master of the sword, axe, maul, spear, able to employ your craft in ways that no lesser warrior can even imagine.

The weaponmaster focuses body, mind, weapon, and will. They devote their strength and their life to the service of a master or an ideal they accepts as greater than themselves. Some weaponmasters become masters in their own right, but even one who becomes an emperor sees himself as a servant of some higher power.

Most characters who become weaponmasters aspire to the path from the beginning of their careers. Often, other weaponmasters or elite military organizations train likely young men and women in the principles of service, the arts of war, and the purity of mind and body necessary to become a weaponmaster. Even those who do not qualify at the end often become powerful adventurers.

Prestige Paths are a way to add another layer of flavor onto a character without using class levels. They are somewhere between a class and a background. Class levels are finite in 5e, so this allows for a light version of a class without breaking normal progression.

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.
