Ratling fencer is a type of monster that can be generated in dungeons. They are notable in that they are one of a few monsters that can disarm the player. This is one way of removing a cursed weapon.

Fencers are a more harmless version of the ratling duelist, who have the same disarming powers, but also bypass the character's armor with their (frequent) hits.

Monster memory[]

A flexible weapon and lightning-fast movements are the strong points of a ratling fencer. They can be very deadly with their rapiers, so aspiring adventurers had better watch out! While you're still impressed with their whirling weapons, your sword of sharpness may suddenly be wrenched from your hands as if by magic. If you listen to them closely, you will find them muttering in a foreign lingo. But honi soit qui mal y pense.
