Weaving

From AchaeaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The art of Weaving is twofold: first and foremost, it is the practice of forging weapons from the substance of Creation, calling to your hand a blade or mace and dismissing it as soon as its work is done.

Second, it is the means by which a practitioner may begin the return to Creation of a foe, unweaving their mortal shell and consigning them to a grim fate.

The skill of Weaving is available to members of the Psion class, along with Psionics and Emulation.
