13.4.1 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   

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