Now that the class is officially being used I do have a few questions:

Holy Swordsman is a specialized fighter trained by 'The Sky God' that entails specific strikes or attacks that invokes variuos types of energy to execute extraordinary feats. WHere does this energy come from how is it harnessed through the attack. I'm asking as a story teller, not about game mechanics but how is it explained and narrated?

Example: A druid calls on the forces of the natural world to affect said world and bend it to their will. A wizard calls on the knowledge of the arcane arts to command great power. A cleric is endowed with the will of her god and through prayer uses the divine grace to bestow favor.

Put the Holy Swordsman into words. How is his power wielded?

What is a Holy Swordsman's driving mentality? Are they just fighters on a crusade to slay 'The Demon Krovak'? If so, what happens if a Holy Swordsman slays him? Once the others find out, what is their purpose after that?

I don't know what Shoo will say, but the way I see it is:

The Holy Swordsman imbues his sword with his soul when he strikes down his enemies.

It could explain why the blade changes color when one of their abilities is used.

I'm a little confuse as to what you mean by driving mentality but I'll try the best I can. I would think that their mentality would be to fulfill their gods wishes. ATM they are an army made to destroy the demon. So they would always work towards that goal. As to how they would act, that's just like any other class/race/player. They could all be completely different in how they do things.

"Are they just fighters on a crusade to slay 'The Demon Krovak'? If so, what happens if a Holy Swordsman slays him? Once the others find out, what is their purpose after that?"

They are an army that specializes in this style of fighting, but they have the capability to use other forms as well. So, no they are not just fighters on a crusade, they are a force of their god on a crusade. If a Holy Swordsman slays Krovak then their current mission is complete. As we all know about gods, they live to grant quests for those who worship them. When Krovak is destroyed, the Sky God and all of his people will turn to Bahamut for their next challenge. Until he grants them the privilege of his presence, they will live their lives as any other nation.

Looks like your background not only creates a class identity but material for its own campaign with a nation, gods, and quest all its own. Very interesting.

What other forms do you speak of?
