The way of the Devil Tiger is a simple method of undeniable ferocity coupled with unstoppable aggression in the face of the enemy. Rumor has it that the style originated with a particularly martial sect of orcs or hobgoblins that used their rage and sharpened it with discipline. By focusing the cold rage within a warrior’s heart and combining that power with calculated skill and intellect, the Devil Tiger practitioner is a force of remorseless warfare that is capable of truly devastating shows of force. While lacking the subtle elegance of other disciplines, the Devil Tiger discipline is a blunt instrument of effective force, and thus is a widely taught school of combat throughout the whole of the world. Where there is battle, there will be the Devil Tiger discipline.
The practitioners of this discipline are widely varied lot, as many races, religions, and creeds can find members who use this discipline.
