Apprentice Skills: Taskmaster
Taskmasters specialise in feats of physical prowess. They are the front line of warriors or quick and capable scouts that can serve as defenders or aggressors. Apprentice Taskmasters are often squires, guards or hunt guides. Expert Taskmasters are often the foodwinners and resource gatherers for their groups. Taskmasters are often instinctually at one with the environment, thriving under the pressure of a fight or taking up only the most daring of physical challenges. All Apprentice and Expert Taskmaster abilities are assumed to be Skills.
