MASTERS WEAPONRY
You have worked long and hard with one particular type of weapon: swords, axes, daggers, whips, or whatever you choose. Thus, you are a swordsman, an axemaster, a mistress of knives, or whatever is appropriate to your chosen weapon. A master of the rapier is different from a master of the warhammer.
You might wear a symbol—a badge, a pin, a tattoo, an amulet, certain colors, and so on—that indicates the school in which you trained, the style of fighting you have mastered, or the name of your mentor. Your weapon is almost certainly your finest possession. Not only is it well cared for and of high quality, but you probably keep it in a beautiful scabbard, harness, belt, case, or something similar.
Additional Equipment: You have a high-quality weapon of your choosing.
Weaponry Abilities: If you cast spells or have similarly overt abilities, your attacks always look like your chosen weapon. So a force blast appears to be a large weapon made of force. These alterations change nothing other than the appearance of the effects. As another example, Barrier becomes a wall of swirling blades of energy. This alteration changes the ability such that it is not a solid barrier but rather inflicts 1 point of damage to anyone who touches it and 4 points of damage to anyone who passes through it.
Minor Effect Suggestion: The target is so dazzled by your expertise that it is dazed for one round, during which time the difficulty of all tasks it performs is modified by one step to its detriment.
Major Effect Suggestion: Make an immediate additional attack with the weapon as part of your turn.

Tier 1: Weapon Master. You deal 1 additional point of damage with your chosen weapon. Enabler.
Tier 1: Bringing the Pain: You deal 1 additional point of damage with every attack you make. Enabler.
Tier 3: Rapid Attack (3 Speed points). Once per round, you can make an additional attack with your chosen weapon. Enabler.
