About EditShort Sword Combat is a sub-class of regular Sword Combat but is not limited to swords alone. The skill level represents the talent and skill an individual possesses with short swords, knives, rapiers and other cold steel weapons of short length. Most of its users wield knives in combat and tend to be Thieves or Ninjas.
Unlike common swords, users are faster opponents with better aim and evasion, but it compensates with the lack of potent attacks and it's mostly incapable of going through heavy armor.
This skill level is a lot less common than the standard sword combat though.
