Epic Weapon Master (from Sword and Fist)
The epic weapon master is an unparalleled expert in the use of his chosen weapon, whether that weapon is sword, axe, or nunchaku.
You can improve your already prodigious combat talents by selecting Epic Prowess, Epic Weapon Focus, or Overwhelming Critical. Alternatively, enhance your defensive capabilities with Epic Combat Expertise or Epic Toughness. As a melee fighter, Strength is likely your most import!ant ability score, so it should receive the lion's share of ability increases.
Other Options: If your chosen weapon is a reach weapon, it's tough to beat Improved Whirlwind Attack. Penetrate Damage Reduction is great if you routinely find yourself facing foes whose DR your chosen weapon can't overcome. If you go the Weapon Finesse route, then Dexterity becomes a prime target for ability increases.
Hit Die: d10.
Skill Points at Each Additional Level: 2 + Int modifier.
Ki Damage (Ex): The epic weapon master can use his ki damage ability one additional time per day per level gained after 10th (11/day at 11th, 12/day at 12th, and so on).
Increased Multiplier (Ex): The epic weapon master can declare that he is increasing the critical multiplier of his chosen weapon one additional time per day for every 2 levels gained above 10th (6/day at 12th, 7/day at 14th, and so on).
Bonus Feats: The epic weapon master gains a bonus feat (selected from the list of epic weapon master feats) every 3 levels after 10th.
