Sword Master[edit]

It's funny. I never thought of myself as a Master until you brought it up. I've been a mercenary so long, at some point I started being better than the rest. That's about it.
—Radgian, mercenary Sword Master of Faerun

Becoming a Sword Master[edit]

Fighters, Rangers and Barbarians commonly become Sword Masters, though any class specializing in melee combat can become one.

Class Features[edit]

Extreme Combat Style (Ex): At 1st level, the Sword Master must choose either the Single of Dual Wield Epic Combat Style. If single wield is selected, they gain Epic Weapon Focus and Epic Weapon Specialization at 1st level, Overwhelming and Devastating Critical at 5th level, and Blade Bond at 10th level. If they choose Dual Wield, they gain Perfect Two-Weapon Fighting and Two-Weapon Rend at 1st level, Overwhelming and Devastating Critical for as many as two different kinds of swords at 5th level, and Dual Wield at 10th level.

Dual Wield (Ex): Dual Wield removes all penalties - you may now use two full sized weapons without penalty. You also gain a +2 to attack and damage rolls while dual wielding.

Blade Bond (Ex): You now add 1/2 your strength(or dexterity, if using weapon finesse) to your attack rolls and apply 1&1/2 your strength modifier to damage rolls. When using a weapon two handed, you add double your strength modifier to damage rolls.

Damage Reduction (Ex): At 1st level the Sword Master gains Damage Reduction 2/-. At level 3, 6, and nine, it increases by 2. This damage reduction stacks with those granted from armor, magic, and other feats.

Focus (Ex): When not flat footed, the Sword Master gains an additional 5 to all reflex and will saves.

Improved Focus (Ex): For all effects that have a reduced effect for successful will or reflex saves, instead take the reduced effect on a failed save and completely negate the effect on a successful one. This bonus is only conferred versus magical or psionic effects, and then only when the Sword Master is aware of the source of the effect.

Super Speed (Ex): When being attacked by any ranged attack you can do a reflex save to slice the attack in half making it useless no mater how many attacks are being launched you can do this you level number of time.

Epic Sword Attack (Ex):You take all the swords you have or any swords in a 25ft radius and put them into a target then take a final blade and slice the thing hit with the swords igniting them all and dealing the damage of each weapon used even if you use 100 you still use them all but if you use a special weapon such as a class that can create the weapon out of thin air you can double the damage that weapon does.

Sword Masters gain a bonus feat (selected from the list of Sword Master feats) at level 4 and level 8.

Sword Master Bonus Feat List: Armor Skin, Damage Reduction, Devastating Critical, Dire Charge, Energy Resistance, Epic Endurance, Epic Leadership, Epic Prowess, Epic Toughness, Epic Weapon Focus, Epic Weapon Specialization, Exceptional Deflection, Improved Combat Reflexes, Improved Manyshot, Improved Whirlwind Attack, Infinite Deflection, Instant Reload, Legendary Commander, Legendary Rider, Overwhelming Critical, Penetrate Damage Reduction, Perfect Two-Weapon Fighting, Reflect Arrows, Spellcasting Harrier, Storm of Throws, Superior Initiative, Two-Weapon Rend, Uncanny Accuracy.
