Ssome of the starting abilities some brutes can start with are awesome. Another one of my pupils started with an Axe. Two hits of about 43 points each and i was dead.
Not one offensive blow at all!!
Hope you do well.
Edit - Gave you your first pupil mate. The Demigod didn't stand a chance against your hatchet, though i got a few good blows in with my sword before you murdered me!!
