The tempest is the point of calm within a whirling barrier of deadly blades. Poets use colorful terms such as dancer to describe the movement of a tempest and her two blades, but mastery of this fighting style is not about dancing. not is it about impressing anyone - least of all poets. The tempest focuses on learning the ultimate secrets of two-weapon fighting for a single purpose - the destruction of her enemies.
Typically hardy individualists, tempests rarely learn their skills through any sort of formal training. Instead, they master their art though constant application of its disciplines and experimentation on their foes. Similarly, no matter how famous tempests become, it's rare for them to take on students. Their art, they say is one that can be learned but never taught.
