An Iron Tortoise initiate learns a valuable stance that forms the core of their discipline, that being the nature of the Defending Shell. By focusing one’s attention to defense with their shield, their martial skill improves their defense. The martial adept gains an additional +2 bonus to his shield AC bonus for every 5 initiator levels he possesses (minimum of +2 to a maximum of +10).

Seems really good at a very early level, but the /5 Initiator levels irks me when you mention a +10 maximum. This would have to make his Initiator level... oh come on brain do some basic math 25, in order to reach the cap? Most abilities in D&D are made in mind of a non-epic leveled campaign, and having it like this just kind of rubs me the wrong way.

I really love this Homebrew though. Like, a lot.
