Fashionable
You can wear fashionable clothing instead of armor. Fashionable clothing costs the same as the equivalent armor but takes up no Inventory Slots. Fashionable clothing is Fragile, and gains a Break (-1 Def) each time you take fire damage, acid damage, get really wet, or get really dirty.

Duelist
Each time you defeat an enemy in single combat (such as a duel), keep track of what type of weapon they were wielding. You get +1 Defense against that type of weapon. This ability cannot raise your Defense higher than 6, as if you were wearing plate.

Insult Swordfighting
You can make a CHR test to sling a one-liner at a target and gain advantage when attacking or defending vs them. If you fail the test, they have a devastating comeback that gives you disadvantage when attacking or defending vs them. You may only target one enemy at a time with this ability.

Blade Throw Finisher
If you are reduced to 0 grit, you may make a ranged attack with your blade. If it hits a target of your level or lower, they die and you immediately gain 1d6 grit.

Chandelier Swing
Once per session, you may add an advantageous piece of architecture to the scene, a chandelier, a waterwheel, a tall ladder, a floor of loose boards. You may use this to attack up to 2d6 enemies in a single zone, either dealing 1d6 damage, knocking them prone, or shoving them into an adjacent zone.
