Some warriors are known for their skill in battle, others for their mastery of their weapons. silverblade hunters are those who have trained in the use of true silver, refining their skills beyond those of normal warriors by taking advantage of the weightlessness native to their prefered metal.
This ability replaces the silverblade hunter’s proficiency with heavy armor and tower shields.
When a silverblade hunter begins play or takes his first silverblade hunter level, one of their weapons can be upgraded using a specialized forging process. The resulting weapon is treated as mithral in all ways (even if it was previously of a different special material, or even a weapon not made of metal), except that the secrets of its use are unique to the silverblade hunter. All other creatures treat this weapon as if it had the broken condition. If the weapon already has the broken condition, it does not work at all for anyone else trying to use it. This does not add any value to the weapon; the weapon can still be sold for its normal value.
Mithral Armor Training
Beginning at 3rd level, a silverblade hunter’s armor training applies only while wearing mithral armor. In addition, while wearing mithral armor, the armor is treated as one size category lighter for all purposes, including proficiency. This is a modification to the normal rules for mithral armor.

Mithral Weapon Training
Beginning at 5th level, a silverblade hunter’s weapon training applies to all mithral weapons, rather than weapons of a specific weapon group. Every four levels thereafter (9th, 13th, and 17th), the silverblade hunter may choose an additional weapon group. For the purposes of the fighter’s versatile training class feature and similar abilities, the mithral weapon group’s associated skills are Acrobatics and Sleight of Hand. Additionally, a silverblade hunter treats mithral weapons as one weapon category lighter when it would be beneficial to him. For example, he may use Weapon Finesse with a mithral longsword because he may treat it as a light weapon instead of one handed.
