Telekinetic Swordsage The flying sword dances again.

1
You possess a mastery of Swords.
Used by Gideon Lockhart, Created by leonvanderblight.

An entirely new, and elegant form of blade dancing. Through controlling the sword with his mind and years of assassin training Gideon has inadvertently created a new school of sword fighting. Unfortunately, it's not exactly like anyone else could ever practice it. Though given it has been further enhanced by a gift it's perhaps not surprising that this school will never spread beyond its initial practioner.
