Weapon Master (Kensai) - Orient Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Harnessing ki energy is an essential ability for many characters in Oriental Adventures. For weapon masters (kensei), the perfection of ki is found in the mastery of a single melee weapon. Weapon masters seek to unite this weapon of choice with the body, to make them one, and to use the weapon as naturally and without thought as any other limb.
Weapon masters are most often fighters or samurai, since the sheer number of feats required to qualify deters many other characters. Weapon masters are not trained in the samurai schools of Rokugan, but individual fighters or samurai, under the tutelage of a more experienced master, may adopt the weapon master prestige class.
