Samurai are great warriors of the blade and cutting weapons. They have a special ability to slice an opponent wide open, causing extensive bleeding. This bleeding often leads to death for any life form that has a circulatory system. They also have decent polearm and knife skills. They even can do fairly well with a bow, although they definitely prefer melee combat. They have minor dodging and parrying ability and can move fairly well in wooden and padded armor, unlike most other vocations.
