13.3.2 Proficiencies

With this ability, you will find yourself able to specialize in specific weapons, such as the longsword, broadsword, javelin, halberd, flail, and many others. In order to gain proficiency, you must first seek out someone with the knowledge to teach you that specific weapon. Once you have located such a person, you must then ensure that you have enough lessons to persuade the teacher to teach you. You will need 100 lessons to learn each proficiency.                                              

The syntax that you will want to use to learn a weapon proficiency is:
LEARN PROFICIENCY IN <weapon name> FROM <whomever>

After you have given your lessons to the teacher, you must go out and practice with the weapon you are seeking proficiency in. Simply go out and use the weapon as it was intended, and eventually you will master it.                                                                     

Typing PROFICIENCIES will show you what you are currently proficient in, and what you are practicing to be proficient in.
