    Adaptive Stratagem
    Scarlet Bravura (Strike)
    Level: Crusader 1, Warblade 1
    Initiation Action: 1 standard action
    Range: Melee attack
    Target: One creature
    Duration: One round

    With a wide, powerful swing, you can knock your foe off balance, leaving them open to attack by your allies. As part of this maneuver, you make a single melee attack against an opponent. If the attack is successful, that foe is thrown off balance. For 1 round, whenever one of your allies attacks that enemy, they gain their choice of a +2 bonus on their attack roll, or +1/initiator level bonus on their damage roll. They must choose which bonus to apply before they make their attack roll.

    Commander’s Exhortation
    Scarlet Bravura (Counter)
    Level: Crusader 1, Warblade 1
    Initiation Action: Immediate action
    Range: 60 ft.
    Target: One ally
    Duration: Instantaneous

    With a shout of warning or an encouraging battle cry, you spur on your allies to attack. Whenever an enemy provokes an attack of opportunity from one of your allies, you may initiate this maneuver. If you do, that ally may make the attack of opportunity without it counting as their one attack of opportunity for that round, and it deals an additional 1d6 damage if it hits.

    Lunging Assault
    Scarlet Bravura (Strike)
    Level: Crusader 1, Warblade 1
    Initiation Action: 1 standard action
    Range: Melee attack
    Target: One creature

    Thinking without regard for yourself, you deliver a punishing blow to your foes. As part of this maneuver, you make a single melee attack against an opponent. If it hits, it deals an additional 2d8 damage, but you are flatfooted.

    Reckless Offense
    Scarlet Bravura (Stance)
    Level: Crusader 1, Warblade 1
    Initiation Action: Swift action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Stance

    Dealing out powerful blows, you mark yourself as so dangerous a threat that your foes cannot ever let their guard down against you. Even as they strike at your allies they cannot help but look back a you, giving your allies a chance to dodge the blow. Whenever you deal damage to an enemy with a melee attack, that enemy takes a -2 penalty on all melee attacks it makes against your allies. The penalty lasts until you damage another foe. If an enemy reduces you to -1 hp or less while you are in the reckless offense stance, it takes a -2 penalty on all attack rolls for as long as your hp remains below 0, never sure that you are truly down.

    Sheathing the Blade
    Scarlet Bravura (Counter)
    Level: Crusader 2, Warblade 2
    Initiation Action: Immediate action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Instantaneous

    With reckless abandon, you disarm your foe by letting them strike you, catching their blade in your very flesh. Whenever an enemy makes a melee attack against you, before they make their attack roll, you may initiate this maneuver. If you do, you lose your Dexterity bonus and any dodge bonuses to AC. However, if the attack hits, the weapon lodges in your flesh, automatically disarming the foe of it. You may take a move action to draw the weapon out of your flesh, dealing no damage to yourself thanks to this technique. You can only disarm foes of slashing and piercing weapons with this maneuver.

    Tide of Battle

    Level: Crusader 2, Warblade 2

    Range: 60 ft.
    Target: One ally
    Duration: Instantaneous

    With a shouted command, you lead your allies to attack, your attention perfectly focused on their offense. When you initiate this maneuver, one of your allies may make a single melee attack at their highest base attack bonus as an immediate action. However, if their attack misses, then you become flatfooted.

    Valiant Defense
    Scarlet Bravura (Counter)
    Level: Crusader 2, Warblade 2
    Initiation Action: Immediate action
    Range: 5 ft.
    Target: One ally
    Duration: Instantaneous

    With a quick push, you shove your allies out of harm’s way, taking the blows that were meant for them. Whenever an enemy makes a melee attack against an ally adjacent to you, before they make the attack roll, you may initiate this maneuver. You and the targeted ally exchange places, and the attack is made against you, instead of that ally.

    You dive headlong into the blast of a spell to deliver your allies from it.

Any enemy that makes a melee attack against you provokes attacks of opportunity from all of your allies that can reach that enemy.

    It is said that when Commander Gurran left the Temple of Nine Swords, Reshar himself tried to stop his flight, begging him to stay. The Master of Nine is said to have asked the Scarlet Bravura General why he left, what he believed the nine disciplines lacked. Commander Gurran’s response is a legendary one word reply: “Sacrifice.” The pinnacle of the discipline he created embodies this principle, sacrificing all to assure victory. As part of this maneuver, you make a single melee attack against an opponent. If it hits, it deals an additional 15d6 damage, and confers several bonuses on all your allies for 1 round. They gain a +5 bonus on all attack rolls, any melee attack they make deals an additional 2d6 + 1/initiator level damage, and they gain a +5 morale bonus on all saving throws and to AC. However, until the end of your next round, your AC falls to 0, and you automatically fail all saving throws. If you die while suffering from the penalties of ultimate sacrifice, ultimate victory, then the bonuses it confers on your allies last for the duration of the encounter, rather than for 1 round.

    I no longer actively read the forums, and probably won't respond to any PMs. I'm fine with people using my homebrew in anything, including fan-compilations and wikis, as long as you credit me.
