Quicksilver Style Ideas

Awaiting Final Approval

This combat style was created by Alarond Davenson in the city of Torf. Alarond was a streetrat who couldn't afford a sword let alone a dagger. Alarond spent most of his time down in the fighter pits begging for scraps and change watching the fights when the guards were seek of hearing his cries for arms just let him in to watch. And watch he did, one of his favorite gladiators was a street fighter named Donovan who only fought with his fist and no armor here is a recolection of that fight.
"Two combatants are in the "pit" as you look down from your vantage point, high on one of the walls. The first, a strapping young man of large build. He carries no weapons and looks like he is a veteran of this type of fight. His skin is sun darkened and hard, almost like leather. His fists are large and bony, with large knuckles used to hitting solid objects. He wears simple boots and breeches, nothing that would offer his opponent a holding place. The man he is fighting is older and more expeirienced it appears. He moves with an easy grace not to quick to strike, but not fearful also. in his hand, he holds a long knife. larger than a dagger, but not quite as long as what would pas for a sword in this region. They stare at eachother for a few minutes, each taking eachother's measure. The spectators call for action, but these are no gladiators playing the crowd for advantage. These two men only care about one thing. leaving the pit alive, and each one knows, one mistake, and his opponent will be the one to walk away. The swordsman makes the first move, when his opponent steps unevenly. He lunges forward and strikes with his weapon, cutting a deep line in his opponent, but the bare-knuckled fighter does not go down. In fact he seems to take the woulnd with a grunt and uses the opening to punch the swordsman in the knee. As the sowrdsman drops down, he follows up with a kick to the thigh and groin. One more punch to the head finished the blade weilder and the crows cheers. "

This was Alaronds first step into the study of this style a day for history in the making.
