for my other contest entry, the gear healer, click here! [link]
this is fedora. she is a haberdasher/martial artist.
the haberdasher/martial artist is an unique but quite deadly class combination. these secretive individuals are rigorously trained from birth, and their hands can kill a man in as many ways as they can make stylish headwear. all are born into the life, and by the time they can crawl, they can slay a full-grown man at ten paces using only a beanie. some specialize in the deadly use of bowlers, knit caps, berets, burnooses, or whatever head covering is available; however, the most feared are those skilled in the use of the top hat. one of the mysterious restrictions imposed by their order is that the haberdasher/martial artist must never use helms or chain caps, though hard leather coifs are not forbidden.
haberdasher/martial artists of less scruples than their fellows are readily employed as assassins at balls, galas, or other black-tie affairs. few people realize that the custom of removing one's hat indoors is not a matter of manners, but was actually started in an attempt to weed out these fashionable killers. of course, such a precaution could never foil a master of haberdashery and martial arts; soft felt hats and collapsible top hats are easily smuggled in, and still can be used with all the efficacy of their more traditional counterparts...
hahaha, i'm on so much cold medicine i can't see straight.
anyway, this was surprisingly fun to both draw and write. this is my first entry for the seventh sanctum "class act" contest: [link]
the idea is to use one of three generators and make a character based on one of the classes you get. i used the humorous fantasy class generator [link]
, and hopefully i will have another entry done before the deadline.
