I've just become a courtier only to find out I can't train in sword fighting anymore. I'm still able to issue duel challenges (am I able to attend tournaments)? What is the rational behind this?

Each class can train the skills that are directly relevant to them.

Only infiltrators can train infiltration.

Only courtiers can train bureaucracy.

Only warriors can train swordfighting and jousting.

Then shouldn't courtiers just be banned from duels and tournaments like priests are?

Courtiers can fight, they just aren't focused on it.

And who says the skills you train in the academy have to include everything that character could possibly do at that time?
