Axes, Two HandedEdit


Every child knows how to throw a punch. Even the platter-fed children of the richest patricians wrestle each other in their infancy.

For many of the inhabitants of the city, learning to fight with one's bare hands is a matter of life and death. The survival rate of Steps district children is slim. Those who survive learn how to deal with daily black eyes and broken noses. Not surprisingly, such an environment breeds brutal, if unrefined, fighting techniques.
