Runewarden

Clad in shimmering armour and armed with weapons inscribed with arcane runes, the Runewardens are the epitome of discipline and honour in combat. Protection and preservation is their motto, and they are selfless in whatever cause they represent. Fittingly, they possess the knowledge of crafting defensive totems. Their studies of the magic inherent in representational forms also has given them the knowledge to sketch runes not only on totems and weapons but upon themselves, others, and on the ground, each rune possessing a different power.

Strengthened with runes and usually dripping with coated venoms, the flashing blades or brutally bludgeoning weapons of a Runewarden are a magnificent sight in full combat. Discipline and honour are the watchwords of a Runewarden, and the movement of their formations on the battlefield can be a dazzling sight indeed.

Runelore

The skill of Runelore revolves around two aspects: Runes and Totems. By sketching various runes on the ground, on yourself, on other people, or on weapons or armour, a variety of beneficial or harmful effects may be achieved.

While Runes are a nice supplement to other skills, the true power of Runelore is only unleashed in the Totem. By sketching up to six runes on a Totem, and then either Implanting it, or Standing it, a Runewarden is able to create a weapon of destruction that can wreak havoc with anyone the Totem is tuned to affect.

Dual blunt: Master of destruction, these specialists obliterate an opponents limbs with flails and morningstars.

Two-handed: Wielding the largest weapons available, these warriors conquer their enemies with bastard swords and warhammers.

Chivalry

Chivalry is a skill that may be thought of as having three distinct parts. The first part, Falconry, involves the raising, training, and use of falcons. The second part of Chivalry is archery. By gaining the abilities to assess wind direction and speed and use different kinds of bows (longbows, crossbows, darkbows) you may attack from afar, or shoot at a cowardly opponent who has fled to the skies. The third and final part of Chivalry involves an assortment of aggressive abilities ranging from howling a Battlecry, to Engaging your unlucky opponent, to boosting your prowess with Fury..
