Master at Arms


Not all of noblemen are dreaming of a military career. Many of them just serve for minimum period of five years and resign to become politicians, landlords or scientists. But there is always some problems which nobleman can solve only by force of arms. So even not in the service nobleman should keep himself in good condition. Many of them take expensive lessons from famous masters at arms. Nevertheless only few of them maybe someday can reach skill level of their tutors. Nor short swords, nor long pikes, nor armor, nor magic, nor numerical advantage can save enemies of master at arms from inevitable death. Fortunately masters at arms usually not interested in killing somone - all they want is student learning, self improvement tournaments with their own kind. Nevertheless sometimes rulers and warlords manage to call one of these legendary warriors to arms, manipulating their self-interest or sense of duty.
