Desert Wind

Speed and mobility are the hallmarks of the Desert Wind discipline. Desert Wind maneuvers often involve blinding flurries of blows, quick charges and agile footwork. Some maneuvers of this discipline, however, draw upon the supernatural essence of the desert and allow an adept to scour his foes with fire.
