A true warlord is willing to make any sacrifice to defend his allies. By making the oath of the unfailing commander, you stand resolute, your menacing presence drawing your enemies to you alone. While in this stance, you take a -4 penalty to AC. However, your enemies cannot attack any ally adjacent to you, and take a -5 penalty on any attacks rolls made against all allies within 60 ft. of you. In addition, your loyalty to your comrades sustains you as you fight. Whenever an enemy makes a melee attack against you, as long as at least one ally is adjacent to you, you gain an amount of temporary hp equal to your initiator level. Regardless of how many times you are attacked, you can only gain this temporary hp once per round. If an enemy reduces you to -1 hp or less while you are in the oath of the unfailing commander stance, then all enemies take a -5 penalty on all attack rolls for as long as your hp remains below 0.
I smell potential for cheese. Put two people with this stance next to each other and one cannot attack either. I'd suggest allowing a will save for enemies to be able to attack adjacent allies.
