- When the fog of war is lifted, two kinds of soldiers remain: The dead and the legendary. Many of the Yutonians who returned to Sunrise Hills after the Second Black Gold War recounted wild tales of Vigo’ras. The number of enemies who crumbled under his blade is the stuff of legend—Some say he felled hundreds; others insist it was thousands.
- But everyone was certain on one thing: Kael always emerged from battle bathed in the blood of his foes, having shed not a drop of his own. Upon homecoming, the Yutonians could see Kael’s prowess first-hand. He wove spells like a master magus while baffling onlookers with a radiant flurry of chops and thrusts. Using these two talents was what made him such a force on the battlefield. The leaders of the Yutonian Kingdom hastened to spread Kael’s fighting methods. This generation of warriors came to be known as the Spellswords.
The ambitious dream of wielding devastating sorcery and exceptional swordplay is realized in these protégées. More agile than the standard mage and better suited for spell-weaving than warriors, their strikes are amorphous and lethally unpredictable. Their rare talent is fully utilized under the Erlandir banner and a deadly force to be reckoned with.
Refined through years of conflict and adaptation, the Spellswords achieved magical prowess nearly unequaled in the land of Montel. Through the mastery of elemental forces, the Spellswords are able to fortify themselves at expense of their foe, sapping the life force and constraining the enemy into speechless misery. Agility and speed paired with explosive strength are the hallmark of these magic-wielding swordsmen.
Strongest when equipped with a sword and an energy shield, their unique skill set requires both agility and adequate protection in intensive skirmishes.
