Who do ou think is more skilled with the sword?

Tanus or Taita? (we are talking about when they are in there prime)

I know Tanus is a warrior but Taita kinda wrote the book on sword fighting.
my opinion I'd say its Taita because of the amount of experiences he would of had gained in his 150 years or whatever of living :!:

Tanus because he has more practical knowledge - for Taita its mostly theory. Good question, I had a hard time choosing!!

Yeah I agree Tanus - Taita wouldn't have the musculator structure of Tanus due to the lack of testosterone, them bronze swords would be heavy!

I have to buy another copy of rivergod, I let my friend keep my copy ( he better read it) for now I would say that Taita is more skilled, but if he was to fight Tanus he would lose seeing as Tanus is a warrior who's had alot of battle experience..

I'll vote for Taita simply because brains beat brawn. I've seen many movies where some young enthusiastic guy is being trained by an older guy in sword play and is beaten every time. (The first Zoro movie is a good example.) :lol:

Also, since the pen is mightier than the sword and WS is Taita, there's no way you're ever going to see Taita beaten! :)
