An half-orc, with the body covered in magical tattoos, each one a drawing of a different weapon. He walks with caution towards the human knight in front of him, a powerful foe cladded in iron and wielding a greatsword rushes towards its direction. With a big swing of the sword, the knight aims for the half-orc, who just barely dodges the strike, while touching the drawing of a knife. The ink materializes in the shape of a dagger, that the orc uses to aim for the weak spot on his opponent armor, cutting the artery underneath his armpit.
A dwarf faces the leader of the goblinoid army on the battlefield, a giant bugbear. With a longsword in hand she charges towards the enemy, swing the sword with precision. With a mighty blow, the maul of the bugbear strikes hard the blade of the sword, shattering it upon impact. The bugbear laughs, preparing to end the fight with only one swing against the unarmed opponent. Without a second of hesitation, she just lunges forward, and a blade appear on her hand, pulled from thin air, and she swings in a wide arc, carving a wound on the enemy's chest. With a grin as an confused expression is formed on the bugbear face, she drops the sword, that keeps floating in the same position, as if it was held by an invisible warrior, while she raises both hands on the air, and an greataxe mystically appear on the empty hands. With a downward pull from the axe, the fight ends with a thunderous impact.
In the top of a hill, the half-elf starts his mourning training routine. He deepens his stance, while slowly and firmly he opens his arms in a horizontal line, revealing a quarterstaff that wasn't there a second ago. He raises his stance, lifting one leg and balancing on the other, as he jumps and twists in the air, before striking the ground with the weapon. As he lifts the weapon of the ground, is no longer a staff, but a spear that he uses to pierce the air with a mighty thrust. As he pulls his hands, the spear is no longer there, his hands being filled with a pair of scimitars. As the combat form progresses, weapons appear and disappear from his hands in a split second, changing constantly the range of the battle, firing arrows with deadly precision, and flipping in the air with grace. As the form come to an end, his master nods in approval.
