Jump to: navigation, search

Throughout history men have sought enlightenment and the divine. One of the many ways it was approached was through the way of the Mystic, men and women who sought their god/gods or enlightenment through personal experience or revelation. In so doing they learned fundamental truths about their souls, and their minds and bodies.

A Mystic Blade is a man or woman who seeks to learn those lessons by not only honing his body, but also his mind and his spirit. Many come from the ranks of would be swordsages concerned with a more lofty matter than simply mastering the sword, some come from clerical backgrounds, some are scholars, and many are just men touched by the divine at sometime in their life and seeking to find it again.

These men and women have learned to passionately seek what lights their soul on fire and the many truths hidden behind the veil of the physical world. Many are proud and disciplined but many are also wild men throwing off all burdens in their pursuit of the divine.

Alignment: Any

While Mystic Blade's are passionate and enlightened. Not all truths of the world are good, and so Mystic Blade's are also not always good. Some souls burn with a dark fire, devouring their enemies and lusting after power and some are uninterested in this world. Of course their are still others whose souls burn with heroic intensity, and desire to be a shining light in dark times.
