Traveling Masters

Germany's martial-arts masters were similar to England's Masters of Defence: commoners who trained until they attained master status through grueling public duels. Like the Masters of Defence, they knew how to put on a show. Groups of masters - accompanied by their journeymen, apprentices, and inevitable camp-followers - would travel around Germany demonstrating their skills at festivals. They would conduct tests for mastery, stage mock combats to show off their proficiency, and collect money from spectators. In a historical campaign, such an eclectic group of combat-trained wanderers would be an ideal party of PCs!
