Whisperblades are members of the Freeguild Command Corps that support the Freeguild Marshals of the Freeguilds as spymasters and information brokers.[1]

Role

Whisperblades act as spymasters and information brokers for the Marshals. They are capable of moving almost silently across the army keeping the Marshal apprised of cowardice and dissent. Empowered to take the law into their own hands they will observe possible traitors within their ranks before striking a killing blow with their enchanted blades which also instils a healthy paranoia among possible troublemakers.[2a]

Whisperblades have networks of spies and informants at their disposal allowing them to unravel the best-laid plans of the enemy and disrupt the commands of enemy generals.[2b]

Wargear

Whisperblades wear cloaks of Ulguan falsecloth that gives them the ability to blend with the shadows. When entering combat or executing a traitor they are armed with Enchanted Rapiers. [2a][2b]
