Please help me! I basically remember a plot about a misplaced man from earth ending up as a swordsman. There are differing levels of skill all the way to the 7th level. This is for the entire world. there are levels of priests, swordsmen, etc. There is also a river that plays a major role in the series. What is the name?!?!?!?!

Could it be The Reluctant Swordsman by Dave Duncan? http://www.amazon.com/Reluctant-Swordsman-Seventh-Book/dp/0345352912

I haven't read it, but that's what I found when I searched around for your description.

ETA:  One of the reviews says this: "The hero is a 7th level swordsman who picks up a 7th level priest as a travelling companion."
