        *pat pat* No worries, it's called friendly advice because I'm used to GMing, so I'm saying the things I'm seeing.

        I may also be wrong btw, it's just the feeling it's giving me.

        You're still the GM in the end, so your word is the rule! I'm just trying to help a bit because I think I'm more used to this kind of thing! >.<

    Ability Summary:
    Lothar is a decent fencer, having done quite well for himself in a number of fencing contests. In addition, his duties as a citizen require him to sign on to his town's militia, and though his shifts were mostly quite boring, being in his mind wasted time that could be spent on worthier pursuits, there were still enough serious alterations to be dealt with that ensured that Lothar was no stranger to messy brawls.

    While his scimitar did not see much use during recent years, he has more than made up for any lost practise during his panic-filled escape to the frontier, though he would have rather left his blade rusty than stain it with undeserved blood.

    Principal Tactics:
    Enemy is passive (Plays at Dawn)
    • The Play of the Cobra: Assume an open stance to invite attacks from the inexperienced or bold, while being able to power strikes with ease.
    • The Play of the Anaconda: When crossing weapons with an opponent, put pressure on the side of the opponent's weapon and feint the motion of stepping forward, in order to goad them. Against weaker opponents, consider committing to a step forward if they are too passive, pushing their weapon to the side and then striking at them.
    • The Play of the Rattlesnake: Make a provocative attack, to invite the enemy to strike. Commit enough to threaten the opponent but allow the attack to fail and drawback immediately if facing resistance from a moderately skilled opponent, in order to goad them. Do not use against fools and master alike- the former does not need to be disadvantaged, while the latter will not be disadvantaged.
    Enemy changes guards or moves. (Plays at Morning)
    • The Play of Bared Fangs: Feint, then expulse the enemy's weapon to the side. Follow-up with a strike or further plays.
    • The Play of Bitten Hands: Feint, then strike to the forearm as they react.
    • The Play of the Switched Basket: Use this play against those familiar with your style. Expulse their weapon with great force, then cut to the forearm, forcing them to react to your fierceness.
    Enemy Strikes (Plays at Noon)
    • The Play of the Coiled Schemer: Pre-emptive strike to the forearm as they move to attack. Follow-up with a strike or further plays.
    • The Play of the Gambling Charmer: Void attack without the usage of weapon, allowing for an immediate counterstrike with the weapon already in position.
    • The Play of the Foreign Merchant: Known as Arrebatar to Castillian fencers. Counter-cut through the attack to expulse it, then twist the blade and cut back into the enemy.
    Body Mechanics (Stance, Footwork, Guards)
    • Stance: Put your weight on your front foot. Lead with either left or right, depending on how you are feeling.
    • Footwork: To void back, step diagonally sideways and opposite to the direction of the incoming cut, lead with your back foot (Back foot moves first). To pass forth, move your back foot to the front to close the distance, whether it be for a regular strike or a lunge.
    • Guards: A wide variety of guards rather than a handful of principal guards, with a favour for stances that allow for wide, sweeping strikes for power due to the plays.
    Inspirations from real masters
    • Joachim Meyer
    • Domingo Luis Godinho
    • Giovanni Dall’Agochie
    Knowledge of the sorcerous and occult swims around Lothar's head, whispering to him. He has been trying to sort through it, to no avail. Part of him wants to leave it be, but he knows that he will have to deal with these echoes of forgotten sages and devils one way or another sooner or later...

    TBA: Stuff he has sorted out.
    Story:
    Lothar was a humble artisan of a nondescript town, sculpting statues and taking part in fencing contests. However, his name is now universally reviled in his town for actions he has never done.

    His heart aches every time he sieves through his memories, but there is nothing he can do to prove his innocence, and indeed, he understands the feelings of those that despise him. At the same time, his sorrow quickly turns to rage at the being that has robbed his peaceful life from him.

    All he can do now is to carve a new life in the frontier, which he does with renewed gusto. However, he doesn't intend to live a slow life again, nor could he afford to. After all, it is only a matter of time before he meets with them again, and this time he intended to stand his ground.

    Inventory:
    The well-worn handle speaks of a familiarity with countless bouts, through the blade seems to be undiminished despite.
