The Fool’s Grip discipline allowes those who have mastered it to always be armed, by teaching them to find weapons in anything. Though improvised weapons are typically far weaker than the swords and armaments most warriors employ, the techniques of the Fool’s Grip discipline allow them to strike with lethal force and speed. A Fool’s Grip master will use trickery and misdirection to strip his foes of their advantages, and them ruthlessly attack them with whatever weapons he can find.
The Fool’s Grip discipline is a martial tradition born out of necessity, in the chaotic days following the fall of the Temple of the Nine Swords. In those chaotic times, when many martial adepts had lost their blades or had them destroyed, and attack could come from anywhere at any moment, a group of martial masters banded together to form a new discipline.
