I used to be one of the greatest blades in the realm. However, due to my age I lost my edge and strength, couldn't keep up with the young ones. My respect, fame and fortune went next. Desperated, I've traded my sight for total clairvoyance (a few seconds forward is all I need with my skills), but it covers only a small area around me, enough to be undefeated in melee once again. I can even dodge arrows!

How will you defeat me, younglings?

Oh, it's quite elementary, my dear Watson. If your clairvoyance only covers the area around you, and you are blind otherwise, then the path to defeating you is obvious. We need merely use a pit trap or crusher with a large area of effect Or a hail of arrows. Large area of effect with quick deployment time is the ticket.

>> No.53216539

He knows exactly where the arrows will be and h's fast enough to dodge, so he'd be fast enough to deflect, imo.

The large crusher should work, if the area is large enough that he can not move out of its range in a few seconds. But I think something like a poison gas works better.

>> No.53216553

Why would I want to defeat you? Teach me your swordsmanship before age takes what edge you still have left.

>> No.53216562

If your clairvoyance allows you to see only the future, then my answer would be to attack you from the past.

That way you won't see it coming until the attack has already occurred. Your futuresight is meaningless before my conceptual strike.

>> No.53216599

That's the most obvious and sensible way of doing it.

That is why I don't expect my players to make use of it.

Assuming that the casters are occupied with someone else, what could a martial do to win? I just want to give them some interesting enemies to encounter.

Good filename.

Words sometimes are sharper than swords.

2) Use wicked magic

Your clairvoyance doesn't mean shit if I don't know what the fuck I'm doing.

>claim you can use it to dodge arrows
By the time an arrow enters the range of your clairvoyance, it's too late for you to dodge it.

>> No.53217269

You suddenly become aware that something moving 200mph (average speed of an arrow fired from a compound bow) is about to hit you. Note that it is already travelling towards you, as you had no warning that it was fired, only that the projectile's flight path is going to intersect with your body. Your clairvoyance is only going to let you change the spot it hits, not avoid it outright.
No wonder this faggot swordsman lost all respect, he's overblowing his own abilities and gave up his eyesight for objectively shit clairvoyance

I'm undead so...I won't tire, you will. But at least the fight will be a spectacle.
