    Target: You
    Duration: Instant

    The applications of martial lore expand beyond that of sword and shield, arrow and spear. They also include baking. By initiating this boost you entice your allies and enemies alike with a tray of 1d20 delectable cookies that last for 1 round per initiator level. These cookies function as shuriken with an enhancement bonus equal to 1/4 of your Initiator Level. As part of making a standard or full attack action, or initiating a strike you can throw one of these cookies at an enemy within range as a free action. If the cookie hits the enemy, they must succeed on a Will Save (DC 16+ Initiation Modifier) or have their attitude towards you improved by one step. This is an extarodinary ability of the cookies and is not mind affecting or a charm effect.

    That's a little on the... incredibly strong side from every angle.

    Mind affecting without being mind affecting.
    Built in diplomancy.
    Strange duration. Do they only work while warm and gooey? *drools*
    I wish I could make that many cookies in that amount of time. Regardless of how powerful the effect is, I'm too jealous of all of those free cookies.

    For some reason this makes me think about this custom artifact i made. It was a bread stick. Every part of the bread stick could regenerate into a new bread stick. Even the crumbs and even if it was eaten. Eating it would cause someone to explode eventually. All the pieces of it needed to be destroyed in the volcano that powered the bakery that made it.

    It also makes me thing about the +10 sandwich. which was just a very delicious sandwich.

    Also, the attitude increase will almost always be immediately negated if you're already in combat with them. It's main use would be throwing cookies at people when they aren't in combat with you, but then it's an attitude-increase with only an attack roll needed to trigger it. I'd set a duration (maybe increased attitude for 1 minute, after which you can make a Diplomacy check to keep their attitude that way?).

    Entwining Temptress Technique

    Sandbox Goliath (Stance)
    Level: 1
    Initiation Action: 1 swift action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Stance

    Exploiting your uncanny flexibility and keen knowledge of sensitive areas, you gently coax your opponent's body into a position from which he can not move easily. Flustered and caught off guard by your fluid, intimate movements, he finds himself unable to escape the hold.

    While in this stance, you gain a competence bonus on all grapple checks equal to half your initiator level and may use your Dexterity modifier in place of your Strength modifier. Any grapple check made to oppose your actions uses the lower of the defender's Strength and Dexterity modifiers, though creatures acting against you on their own turns use their Strength as normal.

    While in this stance, you gain a competence bonus equal to half your initiator level on checks made to grapple a foe or break a grapple, as well as to your CMD against a foe attempting to grapple you or break your grapple. Furthermore, you may add your Dexterity modifier to your CMB in place of your Strength modifier when making a check to grapple a foe or break a grapple, and your foe does not add its Strength modifier to its CMD against the check.



    Temptress's Caress

    Sandbox Goliath (Boost)
    Level: 3
    Prerequisite: One Sandbox Goliath maneuver
    Intiation Action: 1 swift action
    Range: Touch
    Target: One creature in a grapple with you
    Saving Throw: Will negates
    Duration: 1 round

    With a single stroke of your hand you send rapturous sensations throughout your opponent's body. He immediately ceases his struggling and stands limp in your embrace.

    When you initiate this maneuver, make a grapple check opposed by your target's grapple check. If you succeed, your target must make a Will save (DC 13 + your Charisma or Dexterity modifier, whichever is higher) or be stunned for 1 round.

    When you initiate this maneuver, make a combat maneuver check; any bonuses or abilities that apply to checks to grapple a foe apply to this check. If you succeed, your target must make a Will save (DC 13 + your primary initiating modifier) or be stunned for 1 round.



    DISCLAIMER: Sith_Happens bears no responsibility for any legal action or blunt force trauma incurred as a result of using these maneuvers in actual gameplay.

    EDIT 5/8/15: Raised stance level from 3 to 5.
    EDIT 5/12/15: Removed dazing effect from stance; reduced stance level from 5 to 1; added Temptress's Caress boost.

    Um... at-will save-or-daze is way, way, way too strong for third level, even if gated behind a successful grapple check. In fact, I'd say it's way too strong for any level, especially since it's (Ex). I'd remove the save-or-daze aspect of it entirely; the grapple bonus and str->dex replacement are enough by themselves (you may want to lower it to first or second level, though). But then, I might just be biased because this stance is really rape-y and that makes me feel pretty uncomfortable about it.

    Eh, I think it'd definitely be fine as-is at 5th. The save-or-daze needs to stay, is the thing. For thematic reasons.

    But then, I might just be biased because this stance is really rape-y and that makes me feel pretty uncomfortable about it.
    The... recreational uses of the stance are definitely intentional (I did write it to mess with LoyalPaladin after all), though I was thinking more in terms of a willing grapplee.

    The primary concern is that a dazed creature can't attempt to break out of a grapple. Maybe limit them such that the only action they can take is to attempt to break out of the grapple via Escape Artist/their own Grapple check? Otherwise this negates literally every defense against grapple other than pumping CMD.

    Seerow's Surprising Stomach Punch
    Sandbox Goliath (Boost)
    Level: 4th.
    Prerequisites: 1 Sandbox Goliath maneuver.
    Initiation Action: Swift Action.
    Range: Your natural reach.
    Target: 1 creature.
    Duration: Instantaneous.

    When you initiate this maneuver your torso opens up and a spring-loaded boxing glove shoots out to strike an enemy. you must make a melee attack roll to strike with this attack, and if you succeed at a Bluff or Perform (Song) check with a DC of their AC the target is considered flat-footed. This boxing glove deals 1d6 damage per three initiator levels, and does not add your Strength modifier, Power Attack, or any modifiers which apply specifically to weapon damage, but it ignores DR.

    If you are defeated in an encounter in which you used this maneuver your opponent(s) gain 15 Silver Points.

    Huh. It's already been done, I guess. I'm not very familiar with the DSP maneuvers, otherwise I'd have known that. And theirs is a lot better than mine. Sorry.

    I'm glad that you guys like it. The more I think about it though, the more I think that maybe I should make the essentia it gives you last 2 rounds instead of one. As is, you can't really use it effectively with a lot of soulmelds (especially the ones I can think of off the top of my head where you really want to be loading up essentia), because you're only getting the benefits of adding more essentia to them on the back end of your full attack and on passive abilities that work during other people's turns.

    It should be until the end of your next turn, gives you a turn to build up, a round of passives, and a turn to use it. Though I'm not sure about ignoring capacity limits what with being able to get +8 essentia into a single soulmeld (2 weapons, haste), or +16 with Time Stands Still... then again Time Stands Still plus a boost (rabid mongoose) can already kill a Balor most of the time without putting feats into two-weapon fighting and you'd either be spending a feat to get a soulmeld not bound to anything or multiclassing... ok it's probably just my natural worry about uncapped/loosely capped numbers.

    The end of your next turn seems a little out of phase with standard D&D terminology. I think I'll just make it two rounds.

    Uncapped things do have the potential to get a little screwy, especially as blender-style natural attack builds can clear that +8 essentia. It might be worth considering making the cap higher but not arbitrarily high. Doubling essentia capacity would make it so a two-hand user without haste would hit the baseline cap, while those with class features/feats/things to increase the soulmeld's capacity could hit those caps by expanding their attack routines. Anyone have any thoughts on that?

    This one sprang to mind because the Warblade in my group picked up up recently:

    You have violated the- you know what. You guys enjoy your naked stance. I'm going to go mope on Snowbluff's floor.

    Late to the party, but I give permission! I want to see if anyone is bored enough to get to me past all of the others who have asked for them.

    ...I worry the answer is yes.
