Some notes are jotted down with a few blood stains
Foinally mastered de whirlwind attack and de defensive stance (expertise)! Oi nae lost me shield except once of late and Oi was toired after all de trainin'. De key on de stance is te set ye feet in a loine with ye power soide back a bit and den ye gota anticipate de blows and cleave after de come through wit der swing.
More trainin on me waraxe. Oi be takin it te bed with me and cookin' on it and erm even talkin te it sometoimes. Specially in battle. De waraxe has grown on me so dat Oi nae even realoize Oi holdin' eht sometoimes.
Met another weapon master of late. Johnny he called himself. Real quick with his dual weildn' on de scimmies. We along with Ke and Gumbo went on jog through Dregar and deadmans pass. Fought goints, a nasty drake, bugbear warlords, huge snakes and aye trolls at de end. Johnny given me some pointers on me swing and troid gettin me te swing sneaky but dat nae me way. Eht worked gud for him though. Oi go practice somemore with me waraxe after watchin and listenin' te Johnny.

His shield lands on the ground and skips clanging against a nearby wall. Well dat whirlwind swing nae went as planned. He grumbles a bit but picks up the shield and tries a reverse grip. Maybe dis will keep me shield from flying cross de room. He continues to practice the special whirlwind attack he's seen Wimpkin perform with varying levels of success
While he's at the Vehl arena he also take the time to get into the stance he's seen Jinn use so many times in battle. He continues to practice this as well on the combat dummies
By the end of each training session his hands are blue and knuckles sore after the constant swinging at the dummies. He does his best to incorporate the style of swinging that he's seen from other weapon masters he's fought with and against.
At the end of his training he sits in a corner and meditates on his training and jots a few notes down about his travels including his trip up the mountains near Storans crypt to help the girl get her oil flask back. He went with Khrom and Gumbo and met a new gnome named Jay. Good fighter and seemed in tune with his kukri's he dual weilded. He jots some notes down about what he learned from studying his battle technique. He also recounts a trip they went to in a misty bandit holdout with another gnome named Wimpkin who truly was learned in the ways of a weapon master. Various scribblings are written down about him as well including blade grip, stance, angle of swing etc.

Finally found Deadman's Pass. No sign of them Stonesmashers though. Bron, one of the kin of the Crimson Tide left a note with the pawn merchant for us at the Fort nearby, North Fort I be thinkin' it's called.
More trainin' on me war axe. Tryin' different angles of attack, different grips, and such. I've studied some of the kin in battle.
Jinn gots a good stance with his footin' which means he don't get hit alot but he suffers in his swing...hmm. Could be useful for holdin off the enemy and keepin our wall.
After much trainin' and practice I've mastered how to move about in battle and avoid cheap shots from those I pass by so I can focus on battle more. It's all about situational awareness I like ta call it. After so many battles you learn what is a threat and what is not and train yer eye and body to spring to the threat.
Need rest for now. Resume trainin' in the morn.

*Vanderfall peers into the shop and seems impressed with the layout changes. He makes his way to the back of the shop and drops off some crystal rods to start his account*
2 crystal rod I's at 450 = 900

*Zig finally get up and brushes off the leaves and ashes from his leathers. The branches rustle in the large trees still remaining on the outskirts of the devastation. Zig tilts his head at their voice and a glimmer of hope comes across his wrinkled face. Has he felt something new, something learned, or is he just happy that his headache is gone?*

Been at Center now for a good while. Not as orderly as the Gate which is nice for a change. I do enjoy my freedom. The town is dirty and meager with dangers everywhere outside the town proper and even below! Huge underground rats, deadwalkers in a nearby crypt. Gnolls and Orcs in the fields and plains.
I met up with some kins and other good folk and we set out to explore this dangerous land. Callin' ourselves the Crimson Tide. My dwarven waraxe, Gatekeeper, has found plenty of action.
I've learned from those around me and have attempted to train and learn in the ways of battle. Proper fighting stance, how to move in battle as to avoid my enemies takin' cheap shots, and most of all train' my butt off with me waraxe. The blade cleaves well enough but with more training I'm certain I can get more out of it.
I've heard of those who have walked this path of weapon perfection. Maybe I'll seek one out that is worthy. Until then I'll keep trainin' and focusing on me axe.

Theres a trade skill journal? that can be purchased in game that will tell you your crafting skill level/points needed to reach next level.
Also by clicking on one of the skills in the journal it will take you to a list the top ten crafters in that particular field. The list is for crafters who have logged in within the last 90 days I think Orth said.
The old all time crafters list unfortunately does not exist anymore that I can find. We discussed all this on discord recently hehe!
