Blade Musician[edit]

A lone man walks down the street. He still has many miles ahead of him until his destination. Suddenly, he hears a sound behind him: a beautiful dulcimer. He turns around, and the music plays in the background. The man playing the instrument smiles. Suddenly his hands fly over the strings, and the dust around him swirls as if blown by an invisible wind. From his hands, a flurry of invisible blades erupts towards the traveler. He falls, his head first, and then his body.

Kung-fu Hustle[edit]

This is loosely based on the guys with the Guzheng from Kung-fy hustle.

Perfect Blades[edit]

A blade musician has at least a dozen blades, each with a precise length and perfect pitch.

Blind Throw
If a blade musician throws a blade in pitch dark or magic darkness and it hits any creature, the ringing sound that the perfect blade makes when it hits or bounces off the creature tells the blade musician how far away the creature is, how large it is, what direction the creature is moving, what kind of armor it has, and what its armor class is.
