That's true but if your going for hero in the shadows then don't forget three swords, i mean even Decado and Skilgannon both taking him on would have some trouble considering he's literally inhuman! I mean Skilgannon had to train for years with his balance but three swords was born or more accurately reborn with even better balance, reflexes, etc as well as having a few life times to hone his skills.
P.S I loved the part(as evil as it may be) where three swords juggled his swords and killed the three noblemen with them in a matter of seconds that was pretty bad @$$ .
I think I might make a post/ poll on just DG swordsmen, considering its quite unfair for all the melees when there's Shannow with guns and Waylander with a crossbow.
You are so right, i clear forgot about THREESWORDS, although he wasn't a re-born he was a Jiamad (or Joining). I totally agree with the juggling/ slaying, but also loved the fact that he regretted killing the Dukes wife as killing women didn't fit in with the whole warrior life.
I must admit that i haven't read the Shannow novels, but then when i think of heroic fantasy guns just don't really seem to fit that niche
If you are going to make a post on DG swordsmen then i shall definately have to read and post
