The Runeblade is a master of both magic and melee. Using arcane runes and precision blade arts, the runeblade weaves through enemies with the power and certainty of a typhoon. Are you capable of delving into the ancient runic secrets?

Leviathan and The Terrun Calibre[edit]

To aid in this quest, it gifted it's knowledge and experience to mortals who would stand by its side. Gifting them the balance between swordsmanship and arcane runes, those mortals became runeblades. Time has long since passed and the Great Leviathan has all but disappeared from the worlds. But one group remains devout to Leviathan's Teachings and keep the path of the Runeblade alive; The Terrun Calibre. A reclusive order who trains under the caste leader, the Anchorite.

Beginning at Level 3, You can use your action to create your Leviathan’s Blade in your empty hand. You can choose the form that this melee weapon takes each time you create it but it must be a bladed weapon. You are proficient with it while you wield it.

You can then dismiss the weapon, shunting it into an extradimensional space, and it appears whenever you create your Leviathan’s Blade thereafter. The amount of runes a Leviathan's Blade can hold is equal to 2+ the normal max for their size. The weapon ceases being your Leviathan’s Blade if you die, if you perform the 1-hour ritual on a different weapon, or if you use a 1-hour ritual to break your bond to it. Your Leviathan’s Blade appears at your feet if it is in the extradimensional space when the bond breaks.
