Swordsman (One Piece)
A swordsman is a warrior who has, at some point in their life, been trained in the art of swordplay. Be it from a wise Ronin, an elegant tutor or an infamous warrior - the choice is yours.
You walk into a bar in a new and exciting port town, a sword to your hip and a flagon balled in your fist. Suddenly a fight breaks out, and a spilled drink here or a knock more forceful than courteous causes you to spring into action. Perhaps you draw your weapon, and deal with them all in one swift but powerful blow. Perhaps you draw two weapons, dodging and weaving through the fray until they're all cut to ribbons. Or, perhaps you even draw three, dealing with the thugs with an onslaught of unbeatable offensive power. The bodies drop, and the rest of the bar falls silent to you wonderfully exotic fighting style.

(Prerequisite: Santoryu Archetype, 11th level swordsman)
- (Leopard Harp Orb)
The swordsman jumps forward while spinning in the air, forming a ball shape with his blades. This is basically a feinting maneuver, so even if the target manages to read the pattern of this attack and move out of his trajectory, they will still be cut as he careens past them. The attacker rolls an attack with his melee weapon, on a hit the target takes the damage dealt from the weapon and the balled up swordsman 'ricochets' to another enemy within 10 feet. They repeat the process with the attack and keep ricocheting until either there are no more enemies to ricochet from or you miss an attack.

- O Tatsumaki: (Black Rope Dragon Twister)

On a failure, they are thrown 10 feet backwards and 15 feet in the air, as well as taking the full 6d8 + your Dexterity modifier in slashing damage. Unlike the inferior 'Tatsu Maki' technique, the tornado created by the swordsman is black and the wind is much more visible. The tornado will disperse after 4 rounds, until then the tornado zone counts as difficult terrain. Any creatures entering the zone or starting their turn in said zone have to repeat the same saving throw or take 6d8 + your Dexterity modifier in slashing damage. This technique costs 5 Swordsman points. (Prerequisite: Santoryu Archetype, 20th level swordsman)
- Rengoku Oni Giri
- (Purgatory Ogre Cutter)
A much stronger version of "Oni Giri", where the swordsman still faces away from the opponent and waits for them to come. He then turns around and leaps towards the attacking opponent. This may be a way to make his already lightning-fast triple-slash even more sudden. The effect of this attack leaves an X-shaped stream of blood and generates a powerful shockwave that destroys the surroundings. All creatures within a 15ft cone take xd8 + your dexterity modifier, with 'x' being 1/2 of your level. You are also moved 15 feet in the direction you faced the cone after the attack. You do not take attacks of opportunity while moving in this manner. This technique costs 5 Swordsman points. (Prerequisite: Santoryu Archetype, 20th level swordsman)
- Santoryu Ogi - Ichidai Sanzen Daisen Sekai
- (Three Sword Style - Three Thousand Worlds)
The swordsman delivers massive slashes to his opponent one after another. This technique can be done airborne and is capable of cutting through a large amount of solid stone with ease. The swordsman swings his swords in front of him in a rotating wheel in order to charge up momentum, this creates a powerful whirlwind in a 60 foot row in front of the user by proxy - Anyone caught in the whirlwind takes 4d10 + the swordsmans Dexterity modifier in slashing damage. Afterwards, the swordsman leaps forward and delivers devastating slashes to every creature in a 60 foot cone, causing them to take 10d8 Slashing damage as they are hit with a flurry of lightning fast and accurate slashes. This costs 10 swordsman points. (Prerequisite: Santoryu Archetype, 20th level swordsman)
