If you're inviting critical analysis...the hand position on the sword is all wrong. I used to fence Saber in college, and you couldn't maneuver the weapon worth a dang holding it in a clenched fist like that.


Ever notice that "adventurers" always wear some type of mask?

John Cox:

Thanks for the input. I won't be illustrating any dueling manuals soon.


....and by the way,...he looks just like the Dread Pirate Roberts in "Princess Bride"...which is not a bad thing...

Andre the Giant, as Fezzik:
"Why you wear a mask...Were you burned by acid or something?"

Westley: "Oh no. It's just they're terribly comfortable. I think everyone will be wearing them in the future.”


You don't go for touches in combat. You go for casualties. Grip it and rip it. Knock the saber out of Frenchy's hand on the first whack and then carve him up like the Black Knight.


The plane is mightier than the sword.
