This could lead to the assumption that Wardancers are nothing to be afraid of, but the frenzied movements of a skilled Wardancer are as effective and deadly as the great war machines of the Temple. Twisting and turning to a rythm only they can hear, these warriors turn the brutal violence of combat into a refined and deadly dance that only they survive.
The magic of Wardancing often relies on the manipulation of sand or another Element of Magic as a part of the dance. Often the dancer lifts themselves on a coil of magical power, or uses it to increase their martial prowess. During battles, the Dancers wear masks that depict the face of an animal. In a process similar to Spiritism, each Wardancer is in tune with a particular beast that corresponds to their nature, and they are able to shift their form between human and animal and any intermediate stage between both.
