    Default Enlightened Blade (Martial Discipline, PEACH)

    So This is my first martial discipline to be made, so any advice on how to improve it is welcome. It was inspired by Tenshi Hinnanawi from Touhou, and the Earthcrafters from Codex Alera.

    So without further ado, I give you the

    Enlightened Blade



    Introduction: There are some whose devotion wills them to continue on and keep fighting for their allies. Some get their power through the earth,
    while others yet are empowered by their unbreakable mind. One day, a young traveler of the ninefold path witnessed a battle between three warriors,
    each specializing in one of those three styles. The fight moved him, and he began to meditate on what it truly meant. Through years of meditation
    the man had become enlightened on the way of the nine, and discovered a method to blend the discipline of the Diamond Mind,
    The power of Stone Dragon, and the resiliency of the Devoted Spirits, and the mystic nature of the Setting Sun into one, Enlightened Stance.
    Powerful Practitioners of the stance are nigh indestructible, capable of wielding their immense strength in ways to tear the land asunder,
    absorb its power, and harden their bodies and mind, and see through any deception of their opponents, striking them at their true selves.
    However the concentration it takes to do so forces all but the most masterful of it to deaden their reactions.

    Class: Any Martial Adept may learn the Enlightened Blade style, by forgoing access to Any of Stone Dragon, Devoted spirit, or Diamond Mind.

    Default Re: Enlightened Blade (Martial Discipline, PEACH)

    One issue that I see is the overlap of Sword of Scarlet Perception and Wielder of Scarlet perception. A stance and strike that completely obliterate magic. Yes the stance can last longer, but maneuvers aren't a one a day thing. Two things of the same level with the same purpose feels wrong.

    Issue with the level 9, I realize level 9 maneuvers are big and interesting, but 15d6 and stunned for a round against things that don't have mettle, and by things I mean 17-20 enemies within 1080-1200 ft. You have to hit with a touch attack, which you did, to severely damage and stun anything core + anything that doesn't have mettle, which is quite a few things, but that is just me. To many worrying about such things isn't done at level 17+, maybe lower.

    Regarding the feats:

    Stone That Calms the Land
    It may just be me, but it feels like it should add "while in an Enlightened Blade stance"

    Silent Nirvana, you ignore the major drawback of the stances, and become immune to grappling, entangling, slowing magic, being slowed by water, and probably something else.

    Would a drop to 10d6 and shaken/dazed be an acceptable change?

    And Freedom of Movement does seem a bit much. I hadn't thought of all of those,and was primarily thinking of entangling and grappling. Also regarding stone, I thought I had included that, and will edit it now.

    I would say to dazed, and the damage be 10d6 on save yes. Dazed is still a death sentence if it comes at the wrong time, and if the enemy flys with wings and cannot hover(dragons I'm looking at you), then the falling happens anyways, so it keeps that utility.

    The Enlightened one forces their opens to really see themselves as who they are, stripping away all falsehoods they carry.

    While in this stance, each time the initiator hits a target with a melee attack, the target is treated as if they were the subject of Dispel Magic, which resolves at a CL equal to the initiator's IL- 2.
    While in this stance, the initiator has their movement speed reduced to 10 ft, unless it is 5 ft already.

    An Enlightened one cannot be deceived through simple deception, relying only on their own instincts they know just how to strike.

    The initiator gains the ability to see invisible or ethereal creatures, as well as darkvision up to his normal vision range for five rounds, during which time he automatically sees through illusions as though they were not there. The initiator can also strike ethereal and incorporeal creatures with no miss chance for the duration.

Any creature struck must pass a will save or have it's emotions focused on the initiator, suffering a -8 penalty on all actions not pertaining to directly harming the initiator, but receiving a +4 bonus on attack and damage rolls against the initiator.

    With an empowered blow to the ground, an Enlightened one can create hills, mountains, and even plateaus with their knowledge of the world.

    One to Four target 40 foot areas, no more than 20 feet apart at the edges, are raised up into the air, 10 feet per rank of knowledge (nature) the initiator possesses, and they stay that way for 3 rounds per rank of knowledge (nature) the initiator possesses.

    An important step to enlightenment is to go with the flow, and to make a boon out of curses thrown one's way.

    The Initiator performs an attack against the target, and any attack the target makes against the initiator instead heals the initiator for the damage it would deal. Should the target choose not to attack the initiator, they are subject to an Attack of Opportunity at the end of their turn.

    Always Rising After Falling
    Stance
    Prereq 3EB
    An Enlightened one realizes that their lives, like the world around them, have peaks and valleys. Naturally, the largest peaks are found next to the deepest of valleys.

    Any time the initiator takes damage this round, they get a +2 bonus to AC, Fortitude and Reflex saves. They also deal an additional d4 damage on each attack they make that hits during the next round. These effects are replaced by that rounds effects each round. Being in this stance reduces the initiator's movement speed to 10ft per round.

    Ex: Reginald Blackadder is struck by the enemy Fighter 3 times and takes damage from the fire raging around them. The next round, He defeats the enemy Fighter with a full attack dealing an additional 8d4, and avoids
    the hits from the enemy rogue thanks to his increased ac of 8.However he is still burnt by the fire. The next round he only has a +2 to AC and Fort/Ref, and only a +1d4 to damage.


    Okay, I fixed your spelling, grammar, rules viability and so forth for the first five levels, and then gave up - the result is in the spoiler box. You need to have a look over it and fix it all up so that it makes sense.

    For "Always Rising After Falling" I have no clue how the ability works, so I didn't try to fix the whole thing to make sense.
