    Default Mystic Eclipse (Martial Discipline)

    The Mystic Eclipse discipline is a controversial one. Unlike the disciplines studied at the Temple of the Nine Swords, the Mystic Eclipse discipline actively denies people access to power, even other martial adepts. As such, the masters of the Temple of the Nine Swords did not see fit to include the Mystic Eclipse discipline in their teachings, though masters of the discipline still practice it today.

    Mystic Eclipse
    Be prepared. A practitioner of the Mystic Eclipse discipline knows that mages abound, and that their power is great. The martial adept doesn't claim to be more powerful than a mage, he knows better. A practitioner of the Mystic Eclipse discipline studies the art of denying their foe access to their abilities. Where a Setting Sun disciple seeks to use their foes strengths against them, a disciple of the Mystic Eclipse doesn't give them the chance to even attack. Maneuvers of the Mystic Eclipse discipline are not known for their damaging strikes, but for their ability to deny their opponent the opportunity to use their own abilities against them.

    Spellcraft is the key skill of the Mystic Eclipse discipline. By understanding the art of the most powerful of foes, one can understand all others. Weapons associated with the Mystic Eclipse discipline are the Shortbow, Longbow, Dagger, Ranseur and Flail (light, heavy, and dire).

    Learning the Mystic Eclipse Discipline

    There are multiple ways to learn maneuvers from the Mystic Eclipse discipline.

    • 1. Upon taking your first level in a class capable of learning maneuvers, you may choose to be unable to learn maneuvers from any one school, and become able to learn Mystic Eclipse maneuvers. You loose the following features from the class:
      • Proficiency with the associated weapons of the chosen discipline, unless they are also associated with a different discipline that class can access.
      • The discipline's key skill as a class skill, again unless it is the key skill of a different discipline that class can access.

      And instead gain:
      • Proficiency with the Shortbow, Longbow, Dagger, Ranseur and Flail (light, heavy, and dire).
      • Spellcraft as a class skill for this class.

    • 2. Taking the Martial Study feat (Tome of Battle, page 30) or Martial Stance feat to gain a single maneuver or stance.
    • 3. Wearing a Ring of the Mystic Eclipse (found in a later post) will grant a single maneuver known from the discipline.
    • 4. Studying under a master of the Mystic Eclipse discipline for a length of time. One is not considered a master of the discipline until they know at least 2 maneuvers of 5th level or higher from the discipline. This time must be spent undergoing physical and mental training as directed by the master for a number of weeks equal to the highest level maneuvers you can access +1 (So a character with an Initiator Level of 13 would need to spend 8 weeks training under a master of the discipline.). At the end of this training, which the master will almost certainly expect payment for, you may swap maneuvers you know for any maneuver of the same level from the Mystic Eclipse discipline that the master knows.

    Mystic Eclipse Maneuvers
    1st Level
    Spoiler
    Show
    Inquisitor's Stance:
    Mystic Eclipse (Stance)
    Level: 1
    Initiation Action: 1 Swift Action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Stance
    You become thirsty for the blood of your foes, specifically, mages.
    While in Inquisitor's Stance, you focus on harming magical foes (see Inherently Magical Foes, below). You deal +1 damage/Initiator Level to such targets on all attacks.
    Stuttering Strike:
    Mystic Eclipse (Strike)
    Level: 1
    Initiation Action: Standard Action
    Range: Melee/1 Range Increment
    Target: One creature
    Duration: 3 rounds
    Saving Throw: Reflex Negates
    You strike at a foe's joints, leaving them unable to make quick movements.
    As part of this maneuver, you make a single attack. This attack must target a creature within melee range if the weapon you use is a melee weapon, or within 1 range increment if it is a ranged or thrown weapon. The target is unable to take 5-ft steps for 3 rounds, unless they succeed at a Reflex save DC 11+ your Str modifier.
    Pure Rising:
    Mystic Eclipse (Boost)
    Level: 1
    Initiation Action: 1 Swift Action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 round
    You momentarily focus on your weapons, gaining insight against the magic your foes carry in their souls.
    You know the stress points that magic leaves on a creature, and use that insight to deal additional damage against magical foes. For 1 round, your attacks deal an additional 1d6 damage +1/Initiator Level (to a maximum of +5) to inherently magical creatures.

    Mystic Knowledge:
    Mystic Eclipse (Counter)
    Prerequisites: 1 Mystic Eclipse Maneuver
    Level: 2
    Initiation Action: 1 Immediate Action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    With but a moment's thought, you unravel the effect of the ability threatening to overcome you.
    You see the attack coming, and figure out the mystical response to it without a second to lose. You may use this maneuver whenever you would make a save against a Spell, Power, Supernatural Ability, Spell-Like Ability, or Psi-Like Ability. Instead of a saving throw, you roll a Spellcraft check, using that result to determine success or failure. As this is a skill check, and not a savings throw, a natural 20 is not an automatic success and a natural 1 is not an automatic failure. Abilities that depend on saves to activate, such as Evasion, still take effect based on the success or failure of this check.
    Power Forsaken:
    Mystic Eclipse (Strike)
    Level: 2
    Initiation Action: Standard Action
    Range: Melee/1 Range Increment
    Target: One Creature
    Duration: 2 rounds
    Your strike slips into the opponents mind, stripping away one of their powers.
    You attack with such ferocity that you strip the knowledge of one of your opponents most powerful abilities from them. As part of this maneuver, make a single attack and a Spellcraft check versus a DC 15+ the level of the opponent's most powerful spell, power, or maneuver. If you are executing this strike with a melee weapon, your target must be within your reach; if you are executing this strike with a ranged or thrown weapon, your target must be within 1 range increment. If the attack is successful, it deals an additional 2d6 damage; and if the Spellcraft check is successful, one spell, maneuver, or power randomly selected from the highest level of spells, maneuvers, or powers the creature has access to is forced from the target's mind. The creature loses the ability to use the spell, power, or maneuver; loses a spell per day, the minimum power points to manifest the power, or the maneuver readied (and granted, if applicable); and is treated as if they did not know the spell, power, or maneuver for all purposes for the duration of this maneuver.
    Finally, for each spell, power, or maneuver lost, the target takes 1 point of damage per level of the spell, power, or maneuver as it is forcibly removed from the target's mind. A Fortitude Save DC 12+ your Strength modifier halves this additional damage.

    Watchful Eye:
    Mystic Eclipse (Stance)
    Prerequisites: 1 Mystic Eclipse Maneuver
    Level: 3
    Initiation Action: 1 Swift Action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Stance
    You keep a watchful eye on the battle before you, waiting for someone to make a move.
    While you maintain this stance, you may make attacks of opportunity with a ranged weapon, provided the creature that provoked an attack of opportunity is within 1 range increment of the ranged weapon.

    Additionally while in this stance, any creature that you have line of sight and line of effect to that initiates a maneuver, casts a spell, or manifests a power provokes an Attack of Opportunity from you. Unlike normal Attacks of Opportunity, you may make these Attacks of Opportunity with a ranged weapon. In the case of a spell, maneuver, or power that takes next to no time (i.e. takes no longer than a Swift or Immediate action to activate) to use, you may only take this Attack of Opportunity by successfully identifying the action (whether via Psicraft, Martial Lore, or Spellcraft; as appropriate) and expend an Immediate Action along with an Attack of Opportunity.

    Mystic Eclipse (Boost)
    Level: 3

    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 round/Initiator Level
    You select a foe, and as your blade meets theirs, gain a small understanding of their techniques
    When initiating this maneuver, select a single creature. If you successfully hit the opponent with an attack during the round, you gain a +3 Insight bonus to saving throws versus their abilities, and opposed checks they provoke: such as a Listen check to find them, Martial Lore check to identify their maneuvers, or a Strength check to avoid being tripped by them.
    Hunt the Mad:
    Mystic Eclipse (Strike)
    Level: 3
    Initiation Action: Standard Action
    Range: Melee/1 Range Increment
    Target: 1 creature
    Duration: Instantaneous
    You shun those driven mad by their power, attempting to nullify their abilities
    You attack an opponent, seeking to end the enchantments upon them. While initiating this maneuver, make a single attack, which, if successful, dispels magical effects. If you are executing this maneuver with a melee weapon, the creature targeted must be in reach of the weapon; if you are executing this maneuver with a ranged or thrown weapon, the creature targeted must be within 1 range increment of the weapon. Treat this as a targeted Dispel Magic targeted on the creature attacked, using your Initiator Level as your Caster Level for the purposes of this effect.

    Target: 1 Creature
    Duration: 1 minute (10 rounds)
    Save: Reflex negates
    In one powerful strike, you bring the full might of the Mystic Eclipse to your opponent. You render them incapable of even the simplest orders of power.
    In this ultimate strike of the Mystic Eclipse discipline, the master renders their target unable to use their mental energies, and even drains them of such ability. While initiating this maneuver, you make a single attack. If you are executing this strike with a melee weapon, your target must be within your reach; if you are executing this strike with a ranged or thrown weapon, your target must be within 1 range increment. A successful attack deals 2d4 ability damage to a mental stat (Charisma, Wisdom, or Intelligence) of the initiators choice in addition to dealing damage as normal. Additionally, the target must make a successful Reflex save DC 19+ your Strength modifier or be treated as having no Caster Level, Manifestor Level, or Initiator Level for the duration of this maneuver. This causes the target to be unable to cast spells, manifest powers, or initiate maneuvers, amongst other drawbacks. The target may receive a new save against this portion of the maneuver each round by spending a standard action.


    Inherently Magical Creatures
    Whenever a maneuver, feat, or stance from the Mystic Eclipse discipline targets 'Inherently Magical Creatures' it will effect creatures with any of the following characteristics:
    • Can cast spells, manifest powers, or use Spell or Psi-Like abilities.
    • Has any ability or feature which is denoted as Supernatural
    • Has the Elemental, Fey, Magical Beast, Outsider, or Undead type
    • Has an alignment subtype (Chaotic, Evil, Good, Lawful), or the Incorporeal or Extraplanar subtype.

    Mystic Eclipse Feats

    Mystic Stalker
    You can apply your training against specific foes to your study of breaking magic.
    Prerequisites: Favored Enemy, 1 Mystic Eclipse Maneuver
    Benefit: Whenever a Mystic Eclipse Maneuver targets inherently magical creatures, you may also target creatures appropriate for your Favored Enemy. In addition, you may add the bonus granted by your Favored Enemy ability to the save DC's of your Mystic Eclipse maneuvers if the target is an eligible Favored Enemy.

    Inquisitor
    You know methods for disrupting concentration, and can take opportunities from your opponent devoting their concentration on other tasks.
    Prerequisites: 1 Mystic Eclipse Stance
    Benefit: While you are in a Mystic Eclipse Stance, and attack with one of the Mystic Eclipse associated weapons, you may add twice the level of the highest Mystic Eclipse maneuver (including Stances) you know to the DC of any Concentration check that is made by enemies you threaten. In addition, any action that requires a Concentration check (such as gaining Psionic Focus, casting defensively, and certain Diamond Mind maneuvers) taken by a foe that you threaten provokes an Attack of Opportunity from you.
    Special: Inquisitor may be used in place of Mage Slayer (Complete Arcane, pg 81) in order to meet prerequisites.

    Way of the Eclipse
    You understand the major teachings of the Mystic Eclipse, and can use this knowledge in combat.
    Prerequisites: Spellcraft 9 ranks, +4 Base Attack Bonus, two Mystic Eclipse maneuvers, Inquisitor
    Benefit: You know the three major tactics taught by the Mystic Eclipse. This feat allows you to employ three tactical maneuvers.
    Strike From the Shadows
    Whenever you make an attack against a target that you have a miss chance from their attacks, you gain a +1 bonus to your attack rolls for every 10% of miss chance you have.
    Follow Through
    Whenever you dispel, disrupt, or force the target to forget a spell, power, or maneuver, you gain a bonus to damage against the caster, manifestor, or initiator equal to twice the level of the spell, power, or maneuver dispelled or disrupted for 1 minute against that foe.
    Guard Your Soul
    Whenever you successfully save against an effect, or successfully negate it via Spell or Power Resistance, you gain a +3 bonus to all saves, and gain a stacking +3 Spell Resistance and Power Resistance for one minute.

    This silver gem inset with magical blue gems functions exactly like a Crown of the White Raven except it grants an appropriate maneuver from the Mystic Eclipse discipline. See the Tome of Battle (page 149) for more details.

    Price: 3,000 (novice), 15,000 (scholar), 45,000 (master)

    Not much to comment on until we actually get some maneuvers written up, but I can at least say that:

    The thread title says "Mystic Eclipse", but everything in your post says "Mythic Eclipse". Should probably fix that.

    This paragraph-
    Be prepared. A practitioner of the Mythic Eclipse discipline knows that mages abound, and that their power is great. The martial adept doesn't claim to be more powerful than a mage, he knows better. A practitioner of the Mythic Eclipse discipline studies the art of denying their foe access to their power. Where a Setting Sun disciple seeks to use their foes power against them, a disciple of the Mythic Eclipse doesn't give them the chance to strike. Strikes of the Mythic Eclipse discipline are not known for their powerful strikes, but for their ability to deny their opponent the opportunity to use their own power against them.
    -uses the words "power" and "strikes" a little too frequently. It just reads kinda weirdly. "Strike" three times in fourteen words is a tad much, verging on "Die in the wrathful flames of my wrath!" territory.

    Granted, since you're just now getting to bed, that's probably a case of sleep deprivation induced repetition. But I figured I should mention it all the same.

    Yea, insomnia will do that to a person. Fixed up that paragraph, and (hopefully) all instances of Mythic where it should say Mystic.

    Also, Maneuvers up to 3rd level are up.

    All the way up to 6th level Maneuvers now, and the first two feats are up. Working on the tactical feat and 7th-9th level Maneuvers, hope to have them up by the end of the weekend.

    I've been asked a question, and while looking over this, I noticed a few things I wanted to change to better accommodate bows.

    I would have posted in-thread, but it would be thread necromancy.
    The way it's written currently, it doesn't do anything at all unless you threaten with a ranged weapon. The third level Mystic Eclipse stance Watchful Eye allows you to do this for certain effects currently. I'm going to add to the stance so that it allows for threatening for all purposes. I believe there's other ways to threaten with a range weapon, but I don't know them offhand.

    I'm also going to add to the AoO counters that you can use a ranged weapon for them.

    Strike From the Shadows
    Whenever you make an attack against a target that you have a miss chance from their attacks, you gain a +1 bonus to your attack rolls for every 5% of miss chance you have.[...]
    A +10 bonus to attacks for having Displacement or a similar effect up seems way too high. I would halve that.

    Otherwise, this is a very cool discipline. One of the better "mageslayer" disciplines I've seen.

    That's a good idea. A +2 bonus for concealment seems much better anyway. I altered it to +1 for each 10% concealment.

    Otherwise, this is a very cool discipline. One of the better "mageslayer" disciplines I've seen.
    Thank you.

This causes the target to be unable to cast spells, manifest powers, or initiate maneuvers, amongst other drawbacks. The target gets a new save against this portion of the maneuver each round.
    The target[/list]
    So this lasts till they save, or does it have a duration?

    That was a case of missed copy/paste. It's the same as the Wrenching/Stuttering/Halting Strikes. 1 round/Initiator level. There's also a Reflex save to negate the secondary effect.

    One question regarding the Inquisitor feat.

    Is the second part of the feat (provoke AoO) also only usable when wielding Mystic Eclipse weapons?

    As written it isn't, although it was not originally intended. This is a thing I will clarify.

    Also, while I'm at it, I'm going to update it to how it is currently used.

    • The names of the Rising line have been changed from Iron Heart knock-offs to Pure/Absolute/Perfect Rising.
    • The duration of the Strike line has been altered. Stuttering/Wrenching/Halting Strike now lasts 2/3/4 rounds respectively. The repeating save per round has been removed.
    • The duration of the Forsaken line has been altered. Knowledge/Power/Path Forsaken now lasts 3/4/5 rounds respectively. Additionally, the damage progression has been smoothed.
    • Mystic Eclipse, the 9th level maneuver, has been altered to a flat duration of 1 minute (10 rounds), and the repeating saves now costs a Standard action to receive.
    • The Ring of the Mystic Eclipse has been added, and the Legacy weapon (a Ranseur) will be added hopefully by Wednesday.
