Motionless and mesmerizing, these peerless warriors fight with mind, body, and spirit, combining all into the speed of a striking adder. Attacks seem to cut through armor as though it isn't there; unstoppable, deadly maneuvers are turned on those who strike at them; wounded enemies suddenly halt in place. All these skills, and more, are the purview of the Spirit Warrior.

Masters and Grand Masters (levels 4 and 5) have abilities known only to the practitioners who have obtained those levels (Find Out in Play). Possibilities may be discovered via in play information and rumors, or may be hinted at in various legends, lore, and stories told around campfires and at the bedsides of children. The truth is a closely-guarded secret, and such tales are just as likely to be hearsay and exaggeration as the actual reality. Such is, as always, the stuff of legends, and a wise Master or Grand Master will allow people to make all the assumptions they wish.
