Sword Marshal

Prerequisite: Warlord, proficiency with a heavy blade

You have extensively studied the use of light blades and heavy blades, and your weapon of choice has become a symbol of your power and leadership. You never enter a battle without your blade in hand, and your allies know to look for that gleaming weapon when they need help or inspiration.
