|Swoop of the smith|
The Swoop of the smith skill conjures a bound blacksmith's hammer into the heroine's hand. This momentum guides the swing, directly targeting the opponent's head. Even at low levels, this is very effective.
Inflicts considerable fracturing damage, if quick enough to connect before the hammer disappears. The heroine or hero often finds herself swinging empty-handed, flying forward into a heap through a cloud of dematerializing smith's hammer, and retreats cursing their low conjuration skill.
After long practice while walking the milestones, determined to ignore the opinions of passers-by, the heroine learns to conjure the hammer up long enough for a good smiting. The heroine will usually get cocky and begin to practice combo moves, though fortunately the skill duration is still brief enough that a wild flying hammer will evaporate before coming back down.
The hammer size will continue to grow with skill, fully exploiting the hidden dimension of hammerspace until the heroine is able to pull ancient giant's hulking ebony smith hammers from a patch of thin air somewhere behind her spine. This is usually fatal to the opponent.
