I've been sitting back and thinking about this alot actually. I haven't heard many using spellweaving, if at all in a samurai set, but of coruse, becoming a spellweaver in the first place is a very difficult prospect, but these are teh basic ideas I was looking at for a specific spellweaving vampire; Archer/Chivalry/Spellweaving Now I say an archer because as templates go, Archery gives the most freedom, because you aren't tied to needing parry anymore. That's 100 points free, and chivalry helps in healing. This means with the extra 100+ points you have left you can attempt to build up spellweaving. The premise is that as an archer you have the range, and with both bushido honoring and enemy of one you can also perform the damage at that range to enemy types (basically sounds like this is the ultimate monster hunter template idea (yea yea, I know there are those vamp/paladin/sammies with skill jewerly)). What I am looking at is a template that doesn't require skill jewelry to succeed and basically has a number of redundancies. Close Wounds and Cleanse by Fire would basically be the ultimate burst damage and dangerous status effects cleansers with remove curse as well. Gift of Renewal and Confidence would provide healing for the small annoyances. Consecrate Weapon, to send your attack tot he weakest resist, Immolating Weapon to add extra fire damage ontop of that. Attune Weapon to reudce damage from enemies by 50%. Gift of Life for those annoying accidents. Word of Death when the big monsters are nearly dead. Arcane Empowerment to increase healing and maybe immolating weapon effectiveness and if you really need it and think you can handle it, reaper form for increased swing speed and resists. It's a bizarre thought and concept, I dunno hwo viable it could be, and since test doesn't like to give a flipping spellweaving book to test, jsut curious if anyone has attempted a samurai with spellweaving.
