Once the dust clears after a battle, the fighter can stand proud, wipe the sweat from his brow and be grateful for the skill and training that allowed him to keep himself alive and vanquish his foes. The field of battle is the home of the fighter, the class that is best suited for combat, showing depths of training that outshines a barbarian's power and rage, the paladin's righteousness, the monk's discipline and the ranger's instincts. Fighters have a wide range of options, with more paths and choices open to them than any other class, for it is they who can decide how they will approach combat, and what abilities they will learn.
With the help of this sourcebook, any character choosing the fighter class will find many alternatives and options for expanding his range of abilities. With career paths, fighters can customise their advancement and gain special benefits from their chosen branch of training. Legendary classes offer a subset and expansion of their combat prowess that may take them to epic levels and beyond. Multiclassing offers a fighter a complement to his abilities, while superior tools can enhance his performance. Tricks of the Trade expands the range of tactics a fighter can use in the field, while weapon mastery and attack moves describe a series of advanced techniques that a fighter can master for even more devastating effects.
