The Windrunner (4e Paragon Path)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

You cannot catch me, for I am swift like the breeze!

Prerequisite: Elemental Swordsman (4e Class)

You have never been the serious sort of person and even though you have dedicated years of your life training to be able to wield the power of the elements within your blade, you still have that element of playfullness and spontaneity. The spirit of the wind is similar to you and for once feels that it has found a person worthy of the title 'The Windrunner'. Many have attempted to wield the power of the wind in similar ways before you, but none have mastered it as well as you.

Quick on your feet, swift with your blade are the two things which describe you best. Your mastery of the wind doesn't stem from your tight control of your actions and rigorous training; it is rather because you play with the wind, letting it flow where it pleases and going along for the ride.

Your foes beware or they may find your blade run through them in the blink of an eye.
