Please apologize if I'm abusing this forum, but it seemed a logical place to look for this type of information. I'm currently playing in a tabletop roleplaying game set during the Warring States period. I need help devising a few martial arts that use the sword as main weapon. Ideas, suggestions, complete descriptions are all welcome. What I need are four or five techniques, using the sword. The techniques may or may not be woven around a common theme. Here are a few guidelines:
Let me hear suggestions.
- Must use sword.
- Must be somewhat rare.
- Must be powerful. Let's assume the person who knows this martial art is the last of his clan, and one of top 5 fighters in the Martial Arts world.
