The samurai of the realm learn five elemental styles of combat. They are
able to switch between their styles at a moments notice to always be in 
the most desirable form.

While in combat if a Samurai shifts to align their style with their attunement
they will do a bonus elemental strike against their foe.

Style Name   : Hitsu-Do
Stat Base    : Intelligence

Samurai can channel the primal rage of fire when they adopt the

tongues of fire, sharing the same pace of those flames. However, the 
samurai sacrifices some of the power those attacks could have done.

Style Name   : Kaze-Do

Style Name   : Mizu-Do
Stat Base    : Strength

Style Name   : Tsuchi-Do
Stat Base    : Constitution

The obstinance of the ancient mountains fuels the style of tsuchi-do.
The samurai fortifies themselves against all attacks.  However, mountains
are not known for their speed and the samurai will find their mobility
