    -Epic Martial Adept Feats-

    Dual Stance Mastery [Epic]
    You are capable of holding yourself in a way to gain multiple benefits.
    Prerequisites: Martial Lore 12 ranks, ability to use at least one 9th level maneuver, and an 8th level stance.
    Benefit: You are capable of using two martial stances simultaneously, or if you have a class feature that gives you this benefit(such as the warblade or master of nine) you are instead capable of using three. You are also capable of taking two swift actions a round, so long as one of them is used to go into a martial stance.

    Empower Maneuver [Epic]
    You strike with great power and force with each maneuver, dealing out blows like no other.
    Prerequisites: Blade Mediation, 24 ranks in the chosen discipline associated skill, ability to use one 9th level maneuver of the chosen discipline, and at least one other strike.
    Benefit: When you take this feat, choose one martial discipline for which you know one 9th level maneuver and have the Blade Mediation feat. All numeric effects that increase the damage of attacks, variable or invariable, of your maneuvers of this discipline are increased by one-half. Saving throws and opposed rolls are not affected. For example, a maneuver that would normally deal 10d6 extra damage now deals 15d6 damage, a maneuver that would deal flat 20 damage now deals 30 damage. A maneuver that grants a +4 bonus to attack rolls does NOT give a +6 to attack, and a maneuver that would grant two bonus attacks does NOT instead grant you three bonus attacks.
    Special: This feat can be taken multiple times, each time selecting a new martial discipline.

    Epic Blade Mediation [Epic]
    You've learned an even deeper insightful mediation of your discipline to become closer to being a grand master of your chosen school.
    Prerequisites: Concentration 10 ranks, Blade Mediation, base attack bonus +21, five maneuvers from any one discipline, which must match the discipline you chose for the Blade Mediation feat.
    Benefit: Select the martial discipline for which you already have the Blade Mediation feat when selecting this feat. You gain a +10 bonus on all damage rolls dealt with the discipline associated weapons of the chosen discipline. You gain a +10 to all checks of the class associated skill, and all saving throw DC's of the chosen discipline increase by +3.
    The benefits of this feat do not stack with those granted by the Blade Mediation feat.
    Special: This feat can be taken multiple times, each time selecting a new martial discipline.

    Martial Knowledge [Epic]
    You take on greater knowledge of combat maneuvers.
    Prerequisites: Ability to use at least one 9th level maneuver.
    Benefit: You learn two maneuvers and a single stance of any level for which you meet the prerequisites to learn.

    Maximize Maneuver [Epic]
    You strike with full power with every strike you can muster.
    Prerequisites: Empower Maneuver, ability to use one 9th level strike and at least three other strikes.
    Benefit: All variable, numeric effects of a maneuver of the discipline you chose for your Empower Maneuver feat you use are maximized. Saving throws and opposed rolls are not affected, nor are maneuvers without random variables. This stacks with the Empowered Maneuver feat.
    Special: This feat can be taken multiple times, each time selecting a new martial discipline.

    Signature Move [Epic]
    You have eternal mastery over a single martial strike, to the point where it's as easy for you to use as any normal attack.
    Prerequisites: Martial Lore 12 ranks, 24 ranks in the discipline associated skill of the chosen maneuver, Adaptive Style, ability to use at least one 9th level strike.
    Benefit: Select a single martial boost, counter or strike you know. Whenever you use that martial maneuver, it is not considered expended but you must still have it readied.
    Special: This feat can be taken multiple times, each time selecting a new martial maneuver.

    Strike of the Dual Adept [Epic]
    You have the ability to strike your foes with double the power you are normally capable of using.
    Prerequisites: Martial Lore 30 ranks, ability to use one 9th level maneuver, and at least two martial strikes.
    Benefit: You are capable of using two strikes, two counters or two boosts simultaneously, so long as each includes a single strike that takes a single standard or full-round action. An exception to this is if the strike or boost involves multiple attacks, which can either be combined if both strikes or boosts is associated with multiple attacks per round, they can be used in conjunction.

    Strike of the Triadic Master [Epic]
    You have sheer mastery over your maneuvers, capable of using up to three in a single strike.
    Prerequisites: Martial Lore 33 ranks, Strike of the Dual Adept, ability to use one 9th level maneuver, and at least five martial strikes.
    Benefit: This feat functions just like the Strike of the Dual Adept feat, except you are capable of using three martial maneuvers in a single attack instead of two.
