    Default The Star Dream the Martial Maneuvers of the Fey (ToB, PEACH)

    New Sword Sage Discipline:
    Star Dream

    After Reshar had founded the Temple of the Nine Swords and his students began to travel the world inadvertently spreading the Sublime Way, one of these disciples encountered a terrible baron of the fey court. The unseelie's champion was defeated with ease and the swordsmen was allowed to wander onward, the fey held back by a mixture of awe and fear.

    Despite his seeming surrender, the unseelie baron was not one to allow defeat to rest easily upon him. For years he studied and reviewed the battle and the art of the blade that had been used to defeat his champion. He found another student of the sublime way and seduced the young warrior into his service. From there he placed his servants into a harsh training regime. For years they practiced and they learned.

    They integrated the powers of Reshar's sublime way with their own innate, or bestowed, powers. When they had finished they unveiled a new style of battle technique, one that focused on the subtle power of the fey. He used this new army to begin a reign of terror over the neighboring woods. Unfortunately his reign was cut short when a band of mortal heroes rose up from the nearby farmlands and through harsh battle put an end to his life.

    With his death his forces scattered and first fey, whether of the summer or the winter court, and then mortals learned this blade magic.

    The Star Dream discipline focuses on the powers of the fey blending the wild powers of beasts and plants and the bewitching powers of the fey with the art of the sword perfected by the mortal races. Star Dream
    In tune with the powers of nature and allowing the great spirit of the wild to flow through you is the path to great power. The Star Dream discipline taps into the powers of the fey and woods to perform unparalleled feats of martial prowess. With an emphasis on speed and agility, this discipline includes not only agility but control over plants and the channeling of animalistic powers.
    Bluff is the key skill for the Star Dream disciple. The associated weapons for the Star Dream disciple are the rapier, elven thinblade, elven courtblade, and dagger.

    Because the Star Dream discipline was never taught widely at the Temple of the Nine Swords or any similar center of training, most martial adepts do not know any maneuvers from it, or even know it exists. Only Crusaders, and Swordsages can learn maneuvers from the Star Dream discipline. There are two ways to master the discipline. The first is to have been trained in it. If you choose to make a martial adept that has already been trained in the Star Dream discipline, you simply replace one discipline that adept could normally learn maneuvers from with the Star Dream discipline. He loses the associated skill of the replaced discipline as a class skill, but gains Bluff as a class skill.

    The other way is to seek out a master of the Star Dream–a martial adept capable of using at least 5th-level maneuvers from the discipline–and training under him. You must train for a month under the master, or spend a month in research, and spend 1,000 xp at the end of your training. You gain the ability to learn maneuvers from the Star Dream discipline, and add Bluff to your martial adept class’s list of class skills. In addition, you may exchange your maneuvers known for maneuvers of the Star Dream discipline. You may exchange one maneuver of each level, and the new maneuvers you learn must be of the same level as the exchanged maneuvers, unlike normal.

    Concerns
    Besides that my formatting for maneuvers is probably bad.

    I'm not sure if I have enough maneuvers of each level or enough stances. I'm also uncertain on the power level of several strikes as well as if the ratio of strikes to boosts/counters is good or if it is too strike heavy.

    So please tell me your thoughts and opinions on this discipline.

    Note: I made this discipline a year ago and actually joined these forums when looking around to see if it was balanced. Seeing the vastly superior quality of some of the work here I've been too shy to post it. But here goes; PEACH away. If something is broken tell me; if something is weak tell me; if something is just plain lame tell me.

    Fluff- I like it.

    This makes it hard to read but it isn't awful. You may want to look at some other homebrew disciplines to see good formatting options for this. My Narrow Bridge is an example that is I think well formatted. (Since you've read The Demented One's you could also look at his which is essentially where I got the formatting from. To see the actual code for formatting quote a post and then just look at that.)

    I'm not sure if I have enough maneuvers of each level or enough stances. I'm also uncertain on the power level of several strikes as well as if the ratio of strikes to boosts/counters is good or if it is too strike heavy.
    20 maneuvers is a good total overall and it looks like they are distributed close to evenly so that's good. The number of stances is low but it isn't so low that I'd be concerned. I wouldn't worry too much about the ratio of strikes to boosts/counters since that varies a lot in the standard 9 disciplines.

    Some of your wording and grammar needs a bit of work; some parts would read better with commas while some commas should probably be periods. For example,

    You say for Blade of the Dancing Stars "The target must make a Will save (DC 19 + your Charisma modifier) or be stunned for 1d4 rounds, this is a mind-affecting effect. This maneuver is a supernatural ability and any bonuses on saves/immunity versus Enchantment/mind-affecting effects apply against its stunning effect." I'd say something like

    "Additionally, the target must make a will save (DC 19 + your Charisma modifier) or be stunned for 1d4 rounds. This aspect of the maneuver is a mind-affecting effect. Additionally, any ability that would apply to resisting spells and other effects from the Enchantment school applies to resisting this stunning effect."

    Tongue of the Fey Woods- possibly too large a bonus especially at mid levels. Diplomancers are already a problem. This is asking for potential game breaking. If one used something like The Giant's modified diplomacy rules this might be less of an issue.

    Prerequisites: One Star Dream Stance
    Benefit: When in a Star Dream stance you gain a +3 to Initiative and a +1 on Reflex saves.
    Do you mean bonuses? If so, say so. Are they unptyped? If so this should be clear. Something like "When in a Star Dream stance you gain a +3 bonus to Initiative and a +1 bonus on Reflex saves."

    Whenever you use a Star Dream maneuver in actual combat when wielding a Star Dream weapon you heal a number of hp equal to the level of the maneuver you used.
    So, um this is awkward. In general things that need to make a distinction about whether one is in actual combat is always an issue. You get weird situations with people harassing squirrels or with people engaging in deliberate non-lethal duels with other party members. It might make more sense to just make this give you temporary hp and forget about whether or not it is really in combat. However, in general I'm not sure I understand the fluff here exactly. What does the maneuver system have to do with healing?
    There's a similar problem with Summer’s Caress in that what constitutes a threat could be a serious issue. Saying that a Level 1 Commoner doesn't count as a threat is reasonable but do you really want to have to leave this to the DM to adjudicate each time? Also, you could have situations where even a level 1 commoner is a threat, like when one of your allies is down to 1 hp or -1 hp and dying and the commoner is trying to kill the ally. Needs a clearer mechanism.

    Winter’s Fury - I'd suggest having all or half the damage be cold damage.

    PLEASE don't phrase it as "Only Swordsages and Crusaders can use this discipline"... it makes it sound like you have read all the homebrew base classes and maybe even PrCs that are part of The Age of Warriors and decided that this doesn't fit ANY of them... while that is theoretically possible, I suspect it isn't the case. "Swordsages and Crusaders may learn maneuvers from this discipline normally, Warblades may not" would be a bit better of a phrasing.

    Considering they're homebrewed and this isn't part of the reboot...that's honestly a needless criticism. It's clear he's making this without any connection to the project at hand so he dosn't -have- to note any of the unoffical classes other people have made.

    Actually I phrased it that way because the others that are part of the reboot phrase it that way and I haven't read through all the other base classes; I also thought those were being decided on a case by case basis and that it wasn't my place to decide, but instead the forum-goers in general.

    Also what would be a better way to phrase it?

    I changed the Summer Dream feat to temporary hit points and took out the line about a peasant in Summer Caress. I'm a little hesitant to change Winter's Fury to half cold damage because the damage is already a little low for that level and that throws in energy resistance; I should look at Lv 7 Desert Wind powers and compare and decide what to do. Also clarified that the Winter Dream feat does give bonuses.

    The fluff reason for the healing is that the Summer (or Seelie) Court of the Fey is associated with healing and renewal so I needed to give them some power that reflected this.

    You probably want to put a duration on those temporary hit points. It's what makes them temporary.

    Changes

    Made Tongue of the Fey Woods add only 1/3 (instead of 1/2) initiator level and be an insight bonus.

    Put a duration on the temporary hit points from Dream of the Summer Stars.

    Modified the wording of Blade of the Dancing Stars.

    Put the names of maneuvers in bold so that they'd be easier to find.
