I wrote these a long time back, but for whatever reason never actually posted them. And well to be perfectly honest I saw a PbP that they might fit in so need them somewhere to reference, so I'm posting them now. Of course that doesn't make any thoughts and critiques any less welcome!

This is a system of martial maneuvers with a focus on utility both in and out of combat, meant to be balanced against level-appropriate (but not broken) spells and shooting for a roughly Tier 2 level of power for martial adepts (and other noncasters if using an "everyone gains maneuvers" system or homebrew replacements that include maneuvers). It is...long. I gave each discipline one maneuver per maneuver level, two at 9th, dividing them up among two main themes for each discipline. So yeah, there's ninety maneuvers down there. Fortunately, I did add a compressed list of one-line descriptions, so anyone interested but who doesn't want to wade through all the text can browse those and just check out the maneuvers that interest you.

The capabilities for each discipline are:
Desert Wind: Instantaneous movement and area damage.
Devoted Spirit: Healing and defense.
Diamond Mind: Information gathering and awareness.
Iron Heart: Pre-battle preparations and counter-magic.
Setting Sun: Counter-intelligence and battlefield maneuvering.
Shadow Hand: Infiltration and misdirection.
Stone Dragon: Terrain alterations and battlefield control.
Tiger Claw: Wilderness survival and battlefield dominance.
White Raven: Social influence and teamwork.

My main aim here is to provide martial characters with (mostly) non-magical capabilities that provide a degree of utility both in and out of combat, that is roughly on par with spells of equal level. The target power I suppose is to bring the martial adepts from Tier 3 to Tier 2. As a result, these maneuvers will likely be more powerful than normal maneuvers. That is intentional - the point of this system is to provide martial characters with powers roughly level-appropriate to spells. That being said, most of these maneuvers don't operate like existing strikes, so the normal maneuvers still have their place, these just greatly expand on a martial character's tactical and non-combat utility. Some maneuvers already did that, and might wind up considered less valuable in comparison. Others provided unique attack actions and boosts to combat efficiency, and should still hold their own just fine.

That being said, while these capabilities are meant to be similar to spells, they are aiming for spells of reasonable power for their level, working on the theory that Tier 2 status is from the diversity of various options, rather than the game-breaking power of the most ludicrous spells. There won't be duplicates of things like Gate and Polymorph that are simply mechanically broken. They may have some advantages or disadvantages in comparison to similar spells. For example, the higher-level Desert Wind teleports have no range limits, but have a much longer initiation time (and Retrace the Wind and Retrace the Breeze in particular are a level higher than related spells Teleport and Greater Teleport). Likewise, Retrace the Wind doesn't have the failure chance that Teleport does, but also requires you be Familiar or Very Familiar with the place you teleport to.

I also kept a few specific rules for balance that won't always be found in spells. For example, maneuvers that affect or hinder opponents always allow some sort of check to avoid or mitigate, and most of the maneuvers that provide out of combat utility have longer initiation times.

As far as keeping things less-magical, I went largely by how the disciplines themselves work. So Desert Wind and Shadow Hand contain explicitly supernatural effects. Devoted Spirit promises really hard that it's not magically healing you, honest, cross its heart. The Zone of Command system, in particular Zone (Mobile) effects, allow for area effects by working on the assumption that skilled warriors are deft in combat, able to make tactical changes in position quickly to control their portion of the battlefield - giving them more credit for mobility than the D&D norm, but pretty clearly not magical. Diamond Mind...I think is the only one I went outside the box with, moving it from pretty explicitly nonmagical to right up there with Devoted Spirit. It's basically asking "how much credit do you give meditation" instead of "how much credit do you give morale". Likewise, most of the other maneuvers do assume, if not explicitly superhuman capability, at least being able to do things in a mechanically superior manner than what physics should allow. Since we're already playing a game where the implicit assumption is that a guy with a sword can bring down a dragon several times bigger than him in a straight fight (possibly in one blow, depending on optimization standards) I think we're okay there.

Of course, all of these things are goals, not assurances, so if I failed to meet any, let me know!

Name of Maneuver: {Discipline. Initiation Action. Target.} - Description.

An Initiation Action of Boost or Counter follows the normal rules for those types of maneuvers.

An Initiation Action of Constant means the maneuver is active as long as it is currently readied.

Some actions have a target entry of Zone. This is a new mechanic, which means the action's targeting is based on your Zone of Command. A character's Zone of Command is an area of the battlefield that it can control, either through supernatural effects, personal presence, swift movement, or the like. A character's Zone of Command is one square out from them per two character levels, or their threatened area, whichever is more. All abilities and maneuvers that apply to adjacent targets or characters, or those within a fixed range, can apply within the Zone if that is more favorable.

Some of these effects are tagged as Zone (Mobile). In this case, whenever the maneuver is used or takes effect, or a character takes advantage of the maneuver to target or interact with something in its Zone, the character may instantly move into a square that threatens one of the squares it took effect at. If the character can affect multiple targets in its Zone, it targets as the Zone was when the action was initiated, and can end up threatening any one target. For example, one of the Tiger Claw maneuvers, Control Your Territory, allows a character to make a standard action attack that targets every opponent in its Zone of Command, and has Zone (Mobile) targeting. When using the maneuver, the character would make an attack against every foe who is in its Zone, based on its current position, and upon finishing the attacks, could choose to instantly move so that it is threatening at least one of the targets. Its Zone of Command would only then be recalculated according to the character's new position.

Zone (Mobile) abilities assume movement on the part of the character. The character can be assumed to take the most advantageous routes within its Zone, and as such, does not provoke attacks for this movement unless all routes to the target would cause it to provoke (as may be the case when affecting a target with reach). The character can use Tumble checks to avoid such attacks of opportunity normally. Likewise, the character can ignore any barriers or harmful terrain unless every possible route to the target would pass them. Note that this free movement is restricted to the character's Zone of Command, so a barrier may block the character if the only route past it is outside the character's Zone.

New Feat - Ranged Command: You can command the battlefield at a distance. As a move action, you can target an area with a diameter equal to your Zone's radius anywhere within one range increment. This area is treated as your Zone of Command as well as your normal Zone. This remains until you move further than one range increment from the targeted area, or take a move action to reposition your ranged Zone. Zone (Mobile) effects do not allow you to move to this area.

Ki Bolt (Su): {Desert Wind. Standard. Medium.} - You fire a bolt of elemental Ki energy out to medium range, dealing 1d6 points of damage per initiator level. This bolt requires a ranged touch attack to hit, and targets receive a save to halve the damage. When you gain this maneuver, choose the energy type you use from the list below; the energy chosen determines the save required and applies a special effect to the attack. You may gain access to additional energy types by spending two skill points for each (these additional options apply to similar maneuvers as well). Any other maneuvers, spells, or abilities you possess that normally deal fire damage change to deal damage of whatever energy type you chose (if you have multiple available energy types, you can choose which energy type you use with each use of an ability).

Fire (Ref): The Ki bolt deals one additional point of damage per die.
Cold (Fort): The target of the Ki bolt is Slowed for one round if it fails its save.
Electricity (Ref): The target of the Ki bolt is Staggered for one round if it fails its save.
Acid (Ref): The Ki bolt deals additional damage at the start of each of the target's next four turns equal to half the number of dice rolled, rounded up.
Sonic (Will): The target of the Ki bolt is Deafened for one minute, and the bolt ignores hardness.
Force (Fort): The Ki bolt can affect ethereal and incorporeal creatures without a miss chance.
Positive (Fort): The Ki bolt deals double damage to the undead, and heals living allies for 1/3 the damage rather than harming them.
Negative (Fort): The Ki bolt heals undead rather than damaging them, and heals the caster 1/3 the damage dealt.
Water (Fort): The target of the Ki bolt is knocked prone if it fails its save.
Wind (Ref): The target of the Ki bolt is knocked back 5' per two points it fails its save by.
Earth (Fort): The target of the Ki bolt is immobilized for one round if it fails its save.
Light (Ref): The target of the Ki bolt loses all Concealment for one round if it fails its save, and is also Blinded if sensitive to light, and takes max damage if vulnerable to sunlight.
Dark (Ref): The target of the Ki bolt is Blinded for one round if it fails its save.
Holy (Will): The Ki bolt deals +2 damage per die against Evil creatures.
Unholy (Will): The Ki bolt deals +2 damage per die against Good creatures.
Axiomatic (Will): The Ki bolt deals +2 damage per die against Chaotic creatures.
Anarchic (Will): The Ki bolt deals +2 damage per die against Lawful creatures.
Psychic (Will): You need not be able to see the target (though you still need line of effect). The target makes a Will save in place of any touch attacks or Reflex saves.

Tend the Wounded: {Devoted Spirit. Boost. Touch.} - You assist any healing magic being used by tending to an ally's wounds. Roll a Heal check; the target heals an amount of hit points equal to the amount rolled, up to a maximum equal to the amount of healing it receives from other sources. If you learn this maneuver, Heal becomes a class skill for you, and any Heal ranks you purchased at a cross-class rate are retroactively upgraded to full class ranks (if this would push your rank above your maximum, you do not benefit from the extra ranks until you reach a high enough level). If you wish, you may substitute your initiator level for your ranks in Heal for purposes of this maneuver.

Open the Eyes: {Diamond Mind. Ten minutes. Personal.} - You fall into a meditative trance, concentrating on the underlying energy that permeates the world. For the next hour, you can detect a certain type of aura of your choice, emulating any first or 0 level spell with the word Detect in its name. You receive information as if you had been concentrating for three rounds.

Disrupt Opponent: {Iron Heart. Constant. Threatened Foes.} - You are too mighty a threat to ignore, and the impending danger of your blade distracts enemy casters from their spells, or skilled fighters from tending to the rest of the field. The DC required to cast a spell defensively while threatened by you increases by your BAB. In addition, any opponent who you damage with a melee attack reduces the radius of its Zone of Command and its threatened area by half the radius of your Zone of Command for one round or until you no longer threaten it, to a minimum radius or area of 5'.

Tactical Swap: {Setting Sun. Constant. Zone (Mobile).} - You help guide your allies into position, subtly coordinating their efforts so the way is clear for them. Allies within your Zone of Command may end their turn in a space occupied by another ally, displacing that ally to an adjacent space. When entering a square in this manner, the square the character exits is not considered threatened for purposes of attacks of opportunity. Additionally, allies within your Zone of Command do not provide cover to your opponents, count as in melee with opponents for purposes of ally ranged attacks, or block other allies from charging.

Combat Cloak: {Shadow Hand. Constant. Personal.} - You reduce any penalties on Hide and Move Silently checks by your initiator level.

Earth Breaker: {Stone Dragon. Standard. Area.} - You strike the ground with such force that a shockwave ripples through the earth, leaving an area of ground broken and difficult to traverse. You can affect an area up to twice the size of your Zone of Command, and may place this area anywhere within a range equal to five times the radius of your Zone of Command. This area becomes difficult terrain.

Lore of the Wilds: {Tiger Claw. Constant. Personal.} - You can track as per the Track feat, and for each five points you beat the DC by, the DM provides one piece of useful information about the people who made the tracks (their likely destination, armor or encumbrance level, emotional state, etc). Additionally, you increase the DC to follow your own tracks by your Survival ranks or initiator level, whichever is higher. If you know this maneuver, you gain Survival as a class skill, and any previous ranks purchased at the cross-class rate are retroactively upgraded to full class ranks (if this would push your rank above your maximum, you do not benefit from the extra ranks until you reach a high enough level). You may substitute your initiator level for your Survival ranks for purposes of this maneuver.

Inspiring Presence: {White Raven. Boost. Close or Zone.} - You inspire strong emotion in a single target in Close range, or all targets in your Zone of Command. When you use this maneuver, choose if you provide a positive or negative effect. A positive effect affects allies; a negative effect affects any foes who fail a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 Level + Cha modifier). The effects last for one round per point of your Charisma modifier. When you use the maneuver, choose the emotion you incite; a positive effect provides a +1 Morale bonus to a certain stat based on the emotion, and a negative effect imposes a -2 penalty. These modifiers increase by +1 or -2 per three points of your Charisma modifier, or per two points if you target the effect rather than affecting your Zone. Anyone who succeeds a save against this maneuver, or one of its advanced forms, becomes immune to your presence for 24 hours.

Calm: Bonus to Will, Doubled Penalty to Damage.
Fear: Bonus to AC, Penalty to Attack.
Joy: Bonus to Reflex, Penalty to Fortitude.
Pain: Bonus to Fortitude, Penalty to Will.
Hate: Bonus to Save DCs, Penalty to DR (negative DR increases damage taken).
Hope: Bonus to Attack, Penalty to Reflex.
Love: Bonus to DR/-, Penalty to Save DCs.
Rage: Doubled Bonus to Damage, Penalty to AC.

Flash Step (Su): {Desert Wind. Stance. Personal.} - While in this stance, any movement you take can be performed as teleportation rather than normal movement. You must have line of effect to the location you wish to teleport to.

Ease Suffering: {Devoted Spirit. Stance. Zone.} - You inspire your allies to press on. All allies within your Zone of Command receive temporary hit points equal to twice your initiator level. These temporary hit points do not stack, and refresh every round.

Know Your Surroundings: {Diamond Mind. Constant. Personal.} - You are constantly aware of your surroundings. While this maneuver is active, you count as occupying every square within your Zone of Command for purposes of determining what you have line of sight to. In addition, you receive no penalty to Spot or Listen checks due to distance within this area, and penalties from greater distances are reduced accordingly. You can search your entire Zone of Command with a single Search check, and any abilities that let you automatically make search checks activate if the appropriate trigger enters your Zone of Command.

Instant Student: {Iron Heart. One Hour. One or more allies.} - You give your allies a primer in the use of a particular weapon or armor, training them in its use. You must be proficient with the item in question. For the next twenty-four hours, affected allies become proficient with the item, and receive the benefit of any feats you possess specific to that item (so if you have Weapon Focus and Weapon Specialization for it, affected allies would too). A character can only have one such temporary capability per point of its Intelligence modifier at any given time.

Break the Trust: {Setting Sun. Constant. Personal.} - If you catch a person in a lie, whether by succeeding a Sense Motive check, pointing out contradictory evidence, magical discernment, or some other manner, the target must immediately make a Bluff check opposed by your Sense Motive check. If you have demonstrable proof of the lie, it takes a -10 penalty. Even if this check succeeds, the target receives a -10 penalty on all future Bluff checks against you for one day per initiator level, and you ignore any magical bonuses to its Bluff checks during that time. If it fails, these penalties apply to everyone who witnessed you catch the lie, and the target must immediately reroll any successful Bluffs it made against those people within the past day (incorporating the penalty).

Cloak the Field (Su): {Shadow Hand. Stance. Zone.} - You fill the area around you with shadowy figments. Your allies see right through them, but your foes find them quite distracting. Allies within your Zone of Command have concealment. This concealment can be used to hide, but viewers would be aware that they are hiding within your zone, and the zone itself is obvious to observers.

Slow the Rush: {Stone Dragon. Counter. Zone (Mobile).} - You are quick to move about and disrupt foes' movements. Until the end of your next turn, when an opponent tries to move through your Zone of Command it must make a Strength or Dexterity check against a DC of 15 + your Strength modifier. If it fails, it moves at half speed and cannot charge, run, or make five-foot steps through your Zone. Each five points it fails by further halves its speed.

Prowl Your Territory: {Tiger Claw. 5' Step. Zone (Mobile).} - You are quick to move about the battlefield. When you take a 5' step, you can activate this maneuver to move anywhere within your Zone of Command (as it was when you begin the movement).

Lead the Unit: {White Raven. Constant. Zone.} - All allies within your Zone of Command may perform an Aid Another action as a Swift action. They may Aid any other ally in your Zone, and the bonus applies to all attacks the ally makes or receives in the next round. Additionally, the bonus for an offensive Aid Another applies to both attack and damage rolls, and the bonus for a defensive Aid Another applies to both AC and saving throws.

Ki Burst (Su): {Desert Wind. Standard. Zone.} - You unleash a wave of Ki energy that fills your Zone of Command. Any allies in your Zone are passed over harmlessly, but foes sustain 1d6 points of damage per initiator level, with a saving throw for half. You may select an energy type for this maneuver following the rules for Ki Bolt.

Triumphant Surge: {Devoted Spirit. One Minute. 60' radius.} - You may begin initiating this maneuver within one minute of winning a battle with an EL no less than the party's average level - 2. You extoll your allies and encourage them to press on to greater heights of glory. All allies within sixty feet of you feel a surge of strength, and recover half the hit points they have lost (so a warrior with 20 hit points remaining out 70 would recover 25 hit points). A character can only benefit from this maneuver once per victory.

Meditative Glimpse: {Diamond Mind. One Minute. Personal.} - You fall into deep meditation, and have an out-of-body experience receiving a vision of a being or place within 100' per initiator level. You need not know the name of the target, but you must be able to unambiguously identify it (such as 'the nearest guard' or 'the room on the other side of that door'). If you choose a person, it receives a Will save DC 10 + 1/2 your initiator level + your Wisdom modifier to avoid the effect. For each round that you maintain the vision, you must make a Concentration check, DC 5 per previous round. The vision ends when you fail. You are helpless while you are meditating.

Parry Spell: {Iron Heart. Counter. Zone (Mobile).} - Your weapon is deft enough to parry even magical attacks, and you are swift to defend your allies from them. When an opponent casts a targeted spell that either allows a Reflex save or requires a Touch attack against a target in your Zone of Command, you can activate this maneuver. Make an attack roll; the target's Reflex save or Touch AC are replaced by your attack roll, if otherwise lower.

Outmaneuver: {Setting Sun. Counter. Zone (Mobile).} - Every movement creates an opening for a ready warrior to exploit. You may activate this maneuver when an opponent completes its movement for the round. For each five feet the opponent moved through your Zone of Command, you can move an ally within your Zone (or yourself) five feet, but this movement cannot take your ally out of your Zone. Once you have activated this maneuver, you can trigger its effect anew multiple times until the start of your next turn, spending one attack of opportunity each time. The ally does not provoke attacks for this movement.

Bypass Security: {Shadow Hand. Special. One Object.} - You can bypass locked and barred doors, alarms, traps, and the like, using a combination of simple skill and perhaps some minor magic, bringing your party with you. You must be aware of the security feature to bypass it, and doing so requires time and caution. Roll a Disable Device check against the normal DC to pick the lock or disable the trap (DC 20 for things like barred doors). You cannot take 20 on this check, and when dealing with a trap, a failure by 5 or more sets off the trap. If you know this maneuver, you add Disable Device to your list of class skills, and any ranks of Disable Device previously purchased at a cross-class rate are retroactively upgraded to full class ranks (if this would push your rank above your maximum, you do not benefit from the extra ranks until you reach a high enough level). The time it takes per character you are getting past depends on how much you succeed or fail the check by:
Fail by 10 or more: Ten minutes per point over nine you failed by.
Fail by less than ten: One minute per point you failed by.
Success by less than 10: One standard action.
Success by 10 or more: Free action.

Dig In: {Stone Dragon. Standard. One or more Squares.} - You prepare terrain to protect your allies and hamper your foes. For each use of this maneuver, you can affect one 5' square per three initiator levels within your Zone of Command. While in the affected squares, your allies receive cover, and if they take the Total Defense action, this upgrades to improved cover. Enemies treat the affected squares as difficult terrain.

Embrace Nature's Fury: {Tiger Claw. Constant. Zone.} - You use your survivalism skills to keep yourself and your allies safe from natural hazards. You and all allies in your Zone of Command ignore environmental dangers as if you were constantly protected by Endure Elements. Additionally, against any natural hazard (including falling damage) that deals one or more dice of damage, you and allies in your Zone lower the number of dice of damage you receive by your initiator level.

Demanding Presence: {White Raven. Boost. Zone.} - This maneuver functions as Inspiring Presence, but rather than providing a bonus, you demand an action. Affected allies may immediately take the listed action as an immediate action; affected foes must take the listed action on their next turn. An action marked with an asterisk limits the target's tactics for one round per point of your Charisma modifier, rather than for only one round. There is also a third option for each emotion, listed as social, which allows you to force certain courses of action in a social setting. In this case, the effect lasts one minute per level; at the end of this time, targets generally return to their normal course of action, and may repent or recant things that they did or said while under the influence of this maneuver.

Calm: Allies: Roll a new Will saving throw against an effect upon it. Foes: Delay turn. Social: Talk peacefully and refrain from hostilities.
Fear: Allies: Take a single move action away from an opponent (no AoO). Foes: Take the run action away from initiator. Social: Back down from any argument or confrontation.
Joy: Allies: Leap to your feet (stand up with no AoO). Foes: Waste turn laughing, indulging in something, etc. Social: Take advantage of entertainments and otherwise have a good time.
Pain: Allies: Roll a new Fortitude saving throw against an effect upon it. Foes: Fall prone, overcome with sudden despair. Social: Mope around and refrain from interacting with others.
Hate: Allies: Make a single melee or ranged attack. Foes: Attack the initiator in preference to other targets*. Social: Insult and belittle those nearby.
Hope: Allies: Take a single move action towards an opponent (no AoO). Foes: Dismiss or end as many active defensive spells and abilities as possible (i.e. dismiss or stop concentrating on protective spells, lower SR, stop using Combat Expertise, etc). Social: Encourage and agree with actions, beliefs, etc that are reasonably presented as positive.
Love: Allies: Perform an Aid Another action. Foes: Refrain from attacking directly*. Social: Act on, display, or communicate positive feelings for those nearby.
Rage: Allies: Make a partial charge (no benefit from pounce). Foes: Attack in melee rather than with magic or ranged attacks*. Social: Argue, bully, or yell at those nearby, or attack them if there is reason or desire to do so.

Walk the Desert Winds (Su): {Desert Wind. Stance. Personal.} - A hot, swirling wind kicks up around you at your will, allowing you to move across open air much as if you were under the effects of an Air Walk spell.

Mitigate Damage: {Devoted Spirit. Stance. Zone.} - You encourage your allies to press on, ensuring them of divine favor. Each round you gain a floating pool of points that can be used to prevent damage on a point-for-point basis to any ally within your Zone of Command. This pool is equal to one-quarter your maximum hit points. Any unused points fade away at the start of your next turn.

Pinpoint Threat: {Diamond Mind. Constant. Personal.} - Any time an opponent you cannot perceive targets an action into or while within your Zone of Command, you may roll an immediate Spot check opposed by its Hide check to pinpoint its location. You retain awareness of the target's position for one round if it is outside your Zone of Command; if within your Zone of Command, it remains pinpointed until one round after it leaves. Each time you fail this check against a given opponent, you receive a +5 bonus on future uses during this encounter, and once you succeed, you automatically succeed all future attempts against the same opponent during the encounter.

Instant Apprentice: {Iron Heart. One hour. One or more allies.} - This maneuver functions like Instant Student, but you train the targets in a more advanced technique. The targets receive one of your feats or maneuvers, or your ranks in a chosen skill, for twenty-four hours. A character can only have one such temporary capability per point of its Intelligence modifier at any given time.

Hear the Lies: {Setting Sun. Move. Personal.} - You may use this maneuver to get a sense of what people are telling you, in conjunction with a Sense Motive check. For the next ten minutes, you automatically discern if any statement that you hear is anything less than completely honest (note: completely honest, not literally true) unless the person making the statement beats your Sense Motive check with a Bluff check. If you forego any magical bonuses to your Sense Motive check, then any Bluff checks made against it likewise lose any magical bonuses. When you successfully detect dishonesty, you are aware of exactly how the target is trying to deceive you (a direct untruth, ommitting information, telling a literal truth that you could misinterpret, just making up an answer to a question it doesn't know the answer to, etc).

Uncertain Location (Su): {Shadow Hand. Standard. Zone.} - When you initiate this maneuver, you summon up a number of quasi-illusory extra bodies anywhere within your Zone of Command. You summon one double per three initiator levels, which last until destroyed, until you activate the boost again, or for one round per two initiator levels. You constantly, stealthily move between these bodies, although you choose one as an anchor for your Zone of Command. You can move all of the bodies with a single move action, and your attacks (and spells, if you have them) can fire from any of the bodies, but the extra bodies do not, themselves, gain additional actions. All of the bodies threaten their normal area for purposes of flanking and making attacks of opportunity - they can even flank with each other. Any body can be attacked by your enemies, but each body has an equal chance of being the real one at a given time (roll a die with maximum sides at least equal to the number of bodies on the field, with a roll of 1 indicating your body was struck and excess numbers rerolled). Your position shifts constantly, but it remains anchored to a given body for at least an entire initiative count, so if multiple foes attack the same body on the same turn, only one check for reality is required, and once a body is determined real no other bodies will for the remainder of that initiative count. Likewise, any actions readied against your action will always target the correct body, since that body is where you are targeting the action from (though of course the body must be in the readying character's attack range). If a "fake" body sustains at least 20% of your current hit points from a single attack, it is destroyed; lesser attacks have no effect. Unlike mirror images, these false bodies are vulnerable to area attacks.

Halt Progress: {Stone Dragon. Counter. Zone (Mobile).} - You fight hard to lock down any opponents who come near you. Until the end of your next turn, any opponent who attempts to move through your Zone of Command must roll a Reflex save (DC 10 + 1/2 initiator level + Strength modifier) or its movement for that action ends.

Defend Your Territory: {Tiger Claw. Stance. Zone (Mobile).} - You are quick to strike at any foe who nears. While in this stance, you are considered to threaten every square within your Zone of Command.

Team Tactics: {White Raven. Constant. Zone.} - You lead your allies in supporting each other's actions. None of your allies within your Zone of Command are denied their Dexterity bonus to AC or flanked unless they all are, and they can all act during a surprise round if any can. Additionally, as long as at least one other ally within your Zone of Command is threatening the same opponent as them, they count as flanking.

Ki Flash (Su): {Desert Wind. Standard. Zone.} - This maneuver functions like Ki Burst, but the damage increases to 1d8 per level and the special effect of the energy type is improved:

Fire (Ref): The Ki flash deals two additional points of damage per die.
Cold (Fort): The target of the Ki flash is Slowed for one round/level if it fails its save.
Electricity (Ref): The target of the Ki flash is Dazed for one round if it fails its save.
Acid (Ref): The Ki flash deals additional damage each round equal to the number of dice rolled for one round/level, if it fails its save.
Sonic (Will): The target of the Ki flash is Stunned for one round if it fails its save.
Force (Fort): The Ki flash can affect ethereal and incorporeal creatures without a miss chance, and deals maximum damage to them.
Positive (Fort): The Ki flash deals double damage to the undead and Turns them on a failed save, and allies within the area are healed 1/3 the damage dealt, rather than taking damage.
Negative (Fort): The Ki flash heals undead rather than damaging them, and inflicts one negative level per five dice of damage on a failed save.
Water (Fort): The target of the Ki flash is subject to a Trip attempt, and Nauseated for one round/level if it fails its save.
Wind (Ref): The target of the Ki flash is subject to a Bull Rush attempt, and Confused for one round/level if it fails its save.
Earth (Fort): The target of the Ki flash is Staggered for one round/level if it fails its save.
Light (Ref): The target of the Ki flash is Blinded for one round/level if it fails its save.
Dark (Ref): The target of the Ki flash suffers a 50% miss chance for one round.
Holy (Will): The Ki flash deals +2 damage/die against Evil creatures, and maximum damage against Evil Outsiders.
Unholy (Will): The Ki flash deals +2 damage/die against Good creatures, and maximum damage against Good Outsiders.
Axiomatic (Will): The Ki flash deals +2 damage/die against Chaotic creatures, and maximum damage against Chaotic Outsiders.
Anarchic (Will): The Ki flash deals +2 damage/die against Lawful creatures, and maximum damage against Lawful Outsiders.
Psychic (Will): The Ki flash inflicts one point of damage to all mental ability scores per three dice of damage on a failed save.

Triumphant Recovery: {Devoted Spirit. One Minute. 60' Radius.} - You may begin initiating this maneuver within one minute of winning a battle with an EL no less than the party's average level - 2. Your encouragement coupled with divine providence helps your allies throw off weakening or persistent effects. Your allies automatically receive and succeed any future saving throws they would be entitled or required to make against existing effects (such as poison, disease, or negative levels, but not merely negative effects that last on a duration). Further, you may purge a total of one point of ability damage or ability drain per initiator level, divided among your allies as you see fit. A character cannot benefit from this maneuver more than once per victory.

Meditative Insight: {Diamond Mind. Ten Minutes. Personal.} - You spend several minutes in deep meditation, opening your mind to subconscious insights and universal understanding. Upon completing this maneuver, you may ask one question, to which the DM provides an accurate answer. The answer cannot be untruthful or even misleading unless misdirecting powers are in play, but can be incomplete - it should, in short, provide a clue or hint, rather than the answer to a dilemma, although it might also provide simple factual data on a subject, or even the DM's assessment of how a course of action will turn out. If you ask a question about another character which that character wishes to keep secret, it may roll a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 Initiator Level + Wisdom modifier) to prevent you from getting the answer, and any protections it has against divination magic apply.

Sunder Spell: {Iron Heart. Counter. Zone (Mobile).} - When an area spell or supernatural effect is cast into your Zone of Command, you can activate this maneuver to physically attack the magical energies, protecting your allies. Make a check pitting your BAB against a DC of 10 + the caster level (or 10 + the CR of the initiating character, for effects without a caster level). On a success, your Zone of Command is excluded from the area.

Relocation: {Setting Sun. Counter. Zone (Mobile).} - As foes try to move, you use swift feints, pulls, pushes, and throws to redirect their movement. Whenever an enemy attempts to move through your Zone of Command, you can activate this maneuver. The opponent must make a Reflex save (DC 10 + 1/2 Initiator Level + Strength or Dexterity modifier) or its movement cannot bring it out of your Zone and after its movement is complete, you can move it one square for every two squares it moved through your Zone, and it may end up prone at your choice. You can move the target within your Zone, or to any square on its perimeter. Once you have activated this maneuver, you can trigger its effect anew multiple times until the start of your next turn, spending one attack of opportunity each time.

Hidden in Air (Su): {Shadow Hand. Constant. Personal.} - While this maneuver is active, you gain the Hide in Plain Sight ability, as a Shadowdancer. Additionally, if you are using the Cloak the Field or Shroud the Field maneuvers, opponents cannot discern the area of your Zone of Command so long as you are hidden.

Earth Smasher: {Stone Dragon. Standard. Area.} - This maneuver functions like Earth Breaker, but the terrain you create is dangerous - the ground breaks underfoot, trees and the like collapse in peoples' path, and sharp, jagged rocks protrude from the shattered earth. Anyone who enters or attempts to move through the area must roll a Reflex save (DC 10 + 1/2 Level + Str mod) or lose their movement. Even if they succeed, they sustain 1d6 points of damage per square they pass through. A character can use Climb to move through the shattered terrain, replacing the Reflex save with a DC 10 + initiator Level + Strength modifier climb check, but this reduces progress through the terrain to 1/4 speed as normal for climbing. Any flying creature in the area when the maneuver is initiated, assuming there is terrain above its current altitude (trees, walls, cliffs, a ceiling, etc), must also roll a save or be driven down by collapsing terrain, suffering normal falling damage plus 1d6 per initiator level and becoming stunned for one round.

Exist Anywhere: {Tiger Claw. Constant. Personal.} - You are at home in any terrain. No matter where you are, you can acquire food, water, and shelter for yourself and up to one ally per two initiator levels. Additionally, you ignore any negative planar effects for whatever plane you are on (this protection, however, does not extend to your allies), as well as any spells that affect an area, have a duration greater than one round, and do not allow a saving throw (if you are allowed a saving throw, a successful save allows you to ignore the spell's effect entirely, even if it would normally entail a partial effect).

Inciting Presence: {White Raven. Standard. Zone.} - This maneuver functions like Inspiring Presence, but rather than causing a statistical bonus or penalty, you cause a negative status effect or grant a temporary exceptional ability. The effects last one round per point of your Charisma modifier in either case. This is a standard action, rather than a Boost.

Calm: Allies Gain: Immunity to Charm and Compulsion. Foes Suffer: Asleep.
Fear: Allies Gain: Improved Uncanny Dodge. Foes Suffer: Panicked.
Joy: Allies Gain: Evasion. Foes Suffer: Dazed.
Pain: Allies Gain: Mettle. Foes Suffer: Nauseated.
Hate: Allies Gain: Sneak Attack +1d6 per 4 initiator levels. Foes Suffer: Discord (as Song of Discord).
Hope: Allies Gain: Freedom of Movement. Foes Suffer: Stunned.
Love: Allies Gain: Death Ward. Foes Suffer: Charmed (as Charm Monster).
Rage: Allies Gain: Auto-confirm critical hits. Foes Suffer: Confused.

Retrace the Wind (Su): {Desert Wind. 10 Minutes. Personal.} - You spend several minutes visualizing a destination you are familiar or very familiar with (per the Teleport spell description) before teleporting there in a flash of light. You may bring along passengers and cargo with a total weight equal to the maximum load for a Strength score equal to the higher of your Strength, Dexterity, or Wisdom score, plus your initiator level.

Mitigate Effect: {Devoted Spirit. Stance. Zone.} - Divine fortune protects your allies from negative effects. Any time an ally within your Zone of Command fails a saving throw against an effect other than hit point damage, it may spend hit points to treat the save as a success. The ally must spend ten hit points per point it failed the save by to treat it as a success. Bonus points from the Mitigate Damage maneuver and temporary hit points may also be spent for this purpose.

Hypercognition: {Diamond Mind. Constant. Zone.} - You are constantly aware of everything going on around you. You receive Blindsight within your Zone of Command.

Forged in the Iron Heart: {Iron Heart. Ten Minutes. One Object.} - With special techniques of tempering, sharpening, and repair, you can make an item stronger for a time. You can treat a single item such as a weapon, suit of armor, or the like, or a five foot section of a larger item or structure, with a single use of this maneuver. For the next twenty-four hours, the item's hardness and hit points are doubled, and it receives a +1 Enhancement Bonus per four initiator levels on relevant effects (for weapons, attack and damage rolls; for armor, AC).

Instill Belief: {Setting Sun. Special. One or more Creatures.} - You confuse those you are speaking to, playing on their emotions and uncertainties to lend credence to even the most outlandish claims. You may use this maneuver whenever you roll a Bluff check to deceive someone. You ignore any penalty to the check due to an unbelievable claim. A successful check instills the target with a nagging belief that what you say is true, even in the face of blatantly contradictory evidence - the target feels that contradictory evidence could be a falsification of its mind or perceptions. For the next 24 hours, any time the character attempts to do something that would be at odds with your bluff, the DC of any d20 rolls it makes becomes equal to your original Bluff check result, if normally lower. After 24 hours, the penalty fades, but a niggling belief in the original bluff still remains. Another character can use this maneuver to counteract an existing instilled belief with an opposed Bluff check. Likewise, any spell that heals mental conditions (such as Heal) or creates a Suggestion effect, can be used to remove an instilled belief with a caster level + Spell Level + Charisma modifier check against a DC equal to the original Bluff check.

Shroud the Field (Su): {Shadow Hand. Stance. Zone.} - This maneuver functions like Cloak the Field, but allies within your Zone of Command instead receive total concealment, and may substitute your Wisdom modifier for their Dexterity modifiers and your ranks in Hide or Move Silently for their own when making Hide and Move Silently checks.

Deny Access: {Stone Dragon. Counter. Personal.} - Until the end of your next turn, whenever you successfully attack an opponent within your Zone of Command, it must roll a Reflex save (DC 10 + 1/2 Initiator Level + Strength modifier) or be launched from your Zone of Command. You launch the opponent in a straight line away from you. If the save fails by at least 5 points, the opponent ends up prone. An enemy who successfully saves against this maneuver is immune to its effects until the start of your next turn. If you make multiple attacks against an opponent, you may forego this maneuver until all of them have been made, with your final successful attack launching the opponent. If your attack is an attack of opportunity, the target loses whatever action provoked the attack.

Control Your Territory: {Tiger Claw. Full Round. Zone (Mobile).} - When you initiate this maneuver, you may make a single attack against every opponent within your Zone of Command. You may substitute any standard action that allows you to make a single attack (such as most strikes) for this attack.

Share Stance: {White Raven. Constant. Zone.} - You lead by example. All allies within your Zone of Command benefit from your current stance. If you have an ability that allows you to take multiple stances at once, you may choose a stance for your allies to benefit from. This does not prevent your allies from using their own stance. Stances that provide a bonus to allies do not stack (if you share Leading the Charge with two allies, you don't each gain three damage bonuses, but other allies who are within range of one of them but not of you would receive the bonus).

Ki Flare (Su): {Desert Wind. Standard. Zone.} - This maneuver functions like Ki Flash, but you may apply two energy types (ignoring immunities or resistances that only apply to one, exploiting vulnerabilities that apply to either, and applying both special effects), and the damage increases to 1d10/level.

Triumphant Return: {Devoted Spirit. One Minute. 60' Radius.} - You know your allies are made of sterner stuff than they might seem, and trust in the divine to see them through any battle. When a battle is won, you quickly work to tend to fallen allies, pulling them back from the brink of death. This maneuver functions like Triumphant Surge, but rather than healing damage, it brings any allies slain in the previous battle back to life. This maneuver only works on allies whose bodies are in-tact (have not been destroyed by an effect, and are not more than their maximum hit points below -10). If the ally was killed by a death effect, it must roll a new save against the effect to revive. No permanent level or constitution loss applies, but the severe damage that the ally received is not miraculously removed; revived allies sustain sufficient Constitution damage to halve their current Constitution score. Since this maneuver works on the assumption that the targets are not too far gone to save, the DM may rule that certain exceptional circumstances prevent this maneuver from working. Revived targets are brought up to a number of hit points equal to their level + Constitution score, or one-quarter their maximum hit points (taking their damaged Constitution into account), whichever is less.

Meditative Sight: {Diamond Mind. Ten Minutes. Personal.} - This maneuver functions like Meditative Glimpse, but there is no range limit so long as you have encountered the individual or visited the place that you target. Additionally, you need to make a Concentration check to sustain the effect every minute, rather than every round. For places and beings that you are familiar with, this becomes every ten minutes, and for very familiar places or people you have a strong relationship with, every hour.

Reflect Magic: {Iron Heart. Counter. Zone.} - This maneuver functions like Parry Magic, but the spell is reflected back upon the caster.

Reposition: {Setting Sun. Standard. Zone (Mobile).} - You instantly move everyone in your Zone of Command into a new square, which must be within your Zone or on its perimeter. Unwilling targets receive a Reflex save (DC 10 + 1/2 Initiator Level + Str or Dex modifier) to avoid this. You may also choose to leave the target prone and/or entangled (entangled targets are immobilized and may make a new Reflex save each round to free themselves of the effect). Any enemy who winds up threatened by one or more of your allies is subject to an attack of opportunity.

Bypass Barrier (Su): {Shadow Hand. Standard or Move. One or more Allies.} - With a little shadow magic, a little deft finesse, and a whole lot of disrespect for the laws of physics, you slip yourself and one ally per three initiator levels past a physical or magical obstruction. You can bypass up to one foot of solid material per initiator level, and with an initiator level check opposed by a caster level check, you can ignore any sort of magic ward, trap, or barrier in the way (including Force and Prismatic effects). This is a standard action with allies, or part of a move action if you are alone.

Earth Reaver: {Stone Dragon. Standard. Area.} - This maneuver functions like Earth Smasher, but the terrain is even more dangerous and unstable, with the ground often cracking apart or trees and the like still falling for one round per initiator level. Anyone who fails its save to move through the terrain is stunned for one round. If it fails two consecutive saves, it is knocked unconscious. Flying creatures must save to avoid being driven down each round until they leave the area or it settles. Damage dice (for moving through the area or being driven down) improve to d8s.

Natural Paradise: {Tiger Claw. One Hour. Special.} - Mages rely on extradimensional palaces layered with wards for security; you find comfort and peace in natural terrain, wherever you roam. When you use this maneuver, you establish a secure, comfortable campsite for yourself and up to one ally per initiator level. This site has enough food and drink for everyone, is sheltered from the elements, and is surprisingly difficult to locate even with magic. Random encounters do not occur, and people cannot accidentally stumble upon your site. Any active attempt to locate your haven or those within it, or to enter it through special means, requires a caster level, initiator level, or skill rank check (as appropriate to the attempt) with a DC of 20 + your initiator level. If someone does manage to make it into your haven, your allies receive one round per initiator level to prepare and automatically achieve a surprise round.

Overwhelming Presence: {White Raven. Standard. Zone.} - This maneuver functions like Demanding Presence, but provides greater control. Allies are given more diversity in their actions. Foes are forced to act in a certain manner for one round per point of your Charisma modifier, and such commands can be outright detrimental to their causes rather than limiting tactics or wasting actions. Social effects last for up to an hour per initiator level, and are likely to result in long-term repurcussions. This is a standard action rather than a Boost.

Calm: Allies: Roll a new Will save against each effect upon it that originally allowed a Will save. Foes: Sit down passively, helpless until attacked. Social: Act peacefully and passively, refraining from hostilities and dismissing important tasks. This ends if attacked, but attackers automatically get a surprise round and the calmed targets receive a natural 1 on initiative.
Fear: Allies: Take any standard, move, or swift action that gets it away from an opponent, provoking no AoOs. Foes: Cower in abject terror, helpless. Social: Give in to any argument or confrontation.
Joy: Allies: Take any move action that changes your position. Foes: Waste turns doing something enjoyable...that would be utterly humiliating for foes or minions to see. Social: Indulge in whatever pleasures, entertainments, or personal vices are offered or available.
Pain: Allies: Roll a new Fortitude save throw against each effect upon it that originally allowed a Fort save. Foes: Collapse to the ground in despair, helpless. Social: Withdraw from all social interaction.
Hate: Allies: Use any standard action that attacks a single target. Foes: Attack a target of the initiator's choice. Social: Do whatever you can to insult and defame those nearby, revealing their secrets, demeaning their feelings, ignoring requests for aid, etc.
Hope: Allies: Take any standard, move, or swift action that gets it closer to an opponent, provoking no AoOs. Foes: Begin dismissing active spells and augmentative or defensive effects and actions as quickly as possible. Social: Act to directly further or promote any course of action that is reasonably presented as a positive course.
Love: Allies: Perform any standard action that aids or improves a single target. Foes: Change allegiance to the initiator. Social: Actively work to help those around you regardless of cost.
Rage: Allies: Make a partial charge (no benefit from Pounce) that deals double damage. Foes: Attack the closest target in melee only. Social: Attack those nearby.

Follow the Breeze (Su): {Desert Wind. Ten Minutes. Personal.} - This maneuver functions like Retrace the Wind, but you can teleport to any place you know of, regardless of familiarity, as per the Greater Teleport spell.

Furious Counter: {Devoted Spirit. Counter. Zone (Mobile).} - You are quick to rush to the aid of your allies when they are harmed, beating back their attacker and preventing it from landing a serious blow. You may activate this maneuver whenever an opponent within your Zone of Command harms one of your allies who is also within your Zone. You may immediately make an attack of opportunity against that foe; if you hit, the damage inflicted by the attacker is reduced by half the damage you deal. Once you have activated this maneuver, you can trigger its effect anew multiple times until the start of your next turn, spending one attack of opportunity each time.

Precognitive Reflexes: {Diamond Mind. Counter. Zone.} - When an enemy ends its turn within your Zone of Command, you may activate this maneuver. The opponent must immediately state its actions for its next turn, including targets and tactics (for example, "approach the wizard and attack it with Greater Insightful Strike" not "move and use a maneuver"). If, when its next turn comes, the opponent does not wish to perform any of the stated actions, it must roll a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 initiator level + Wisdom modifier) or it forfeits those actions. On a successful save, it still takes a -4 penalty on any checks or DCs involved in its new actions. Once you have activated this maneuver, you can trigger its effect anew multiple times until the start of your next turn, spending one attack of opportunity each time.

Battle Plan: {Iron Heart. Ten Minutes. One or more Allies.} - You sit your allies down and establish a plan of action for an upcoming battle. You may have a number of battle plans set at one time equal to one-fourth your initiator level; once they are set, activating a plan is a swift action for you. The plan remains active for the duration of the encounter, and you can only follow one battle plan at a time. When creating a battle plan, you may prepare a number of contingent actions equal to one-third your initiator level. Choose a trigger, a response (a free, swift, move, or standard action), and an ally; whenever the trigger occurs within the ally's perception, it may take the chosen response as an immediate action. The trigger and response can be fairly broad, but must be specific at least to the general action taken (so "counterspell when an enemy casts a spell" is okay, but "take a standard action when an enemy takes a hostile action" isn't).

Hear the Truth: {Setting Sun. Move. Personal.} - This maneuver functions like Hear the Lies, but you immediately learn the truth as the target knows it if the maneuver succeeds. You are also aware of how strongly and generally why the target believes in what it knows (a convincing argument, factual evidence, compelled to believe it, wants to believe it, etc).

Uncertain Formation (Su): {Shadow Hand. Standard. Zone.} - This maneuver functions like Uncertain Location, but you summon up one body per two initiator levels. Additionally, rather than creating a false body, you can cloak an ally within your Zone with one of the bodies, allowing the ally to attack from any of them just as you do. In this case, whenever a body is attacked, roll a die for the number of bodies on the field as normal, with each ally being one possible number. So for example, if you have created eight extra bodies (having nine total), cloaking two allies, foes would roll 1d10; a 1 attacks you, 2 attacks the first ally, 3 attacks the second ally, 4-9 attacks a false body, and 10 is rerolled. On their turns, your allies may move the bodies just as you do. When a body is given an attack of opportunity, you may choose who among your cloaked allies makes the attack.

Deny Passage: {Stone Dragon. Counter. Zone (Mobile).} - Your Zone of Command is a haven for your allies and an inescapable trap for your foes. When your enemies try to pass its boundaries, you rush up to stop them. Until the end of your next turn, any time an enemy attempts to enter or exit your Zone of Command (including through special movement modes and teleportation), the opponent must roll a Reflex save (DC 10 + 1/2 Initiator Level + Str mod) or be blocked at the perimeter of your Zone and lose the rest of its turn.

Claim Your Territory: {Tiger Claw. Boost. Zone.} - Your Zone of Command is marked and claimed, and those who enter your domain do so by your grace or at their peril. When you activate this maneuver, note every character who is currently in your Zone of Command; for the rest of the encounter, those characters always count as within your Zone of Command, as long as you have line of effect to them.

Many But One: {White Raven. Constant. Zone.} - Any negative effects that apply against multiple allies in your Zone of Command are divided among all of them (that is, hit point damage, points of ability damage, negative levels, rounds of duration, etc), to a minimum of 1 per member affected. For example, if a 60-point Empowered Fireball hits ten members of your unit, they each take 6 damage rather than 60 (and they can still save for half damage). If a Slow spell with a fifteen round duration hits five members of your unit, those who fail their saves are only affected for three rounds, and so on. Negative effects that targets a single ally still affect that ally only at full strength. Additionally, positive effects that target any member of the unit can apply to any or all of them, although they must be applicable targets (those that affect multiple targets do not apply multiple times); for example, a Cure Serious Wounds spell would apply to all allies in your Zone, but a Divine Power spell would not, since it is a self-only spell. Likewise, an Enlarge Person spell could affect all humanoid allies in your Zone, but not, say, an ally's animal companion.

Follow the Winds (Su): {Desert Wind. Ten Minutes. Personal.} - This maneuver functions like Retrace the Breeze, but allows you to teleport to any place you can identify, even through indirect means (such as "ten feet to the left of King Halyon DeCassen" or "the nearest tavern").

Ki Blaze (Su): {Desert Wind. Standard. Zone.} - This maneuver functions like Ki Flare, but requires an additional save. Anyone who fails this first save is killed, their body destroyed. Additionally, the damage of the attack improves to 2d6 per level.

Triumphant Advance: {Devoted Spirit. One Minute. 60' Radius.} - With you at the lead, your allies are an unstoppable force, impossible to wear down and divinely fated to overcome any challenge. This maneuver functions like Triumphant Surge, but it heals your allies to full hit points and removes any effect that can be purged with a Heal or Greater Restoration spell.

Impervious Sanctuary: {Devoted Spirit. Counter. Zone (Mobile).} - You defend your allies with unceasing vigor. Until the end of your next turn, any time an enemy attempts to target an ally within your Zone of Command, or a hostile area effect includes your Zone of Command, you may roll an Initiator Level check against a DC of 11 + the opponent's CR. On a success, the action causes no effect to any target within your Zone of Command and the opponent loses the rest of its turn.

Meditative Understanding: {Diamond Mind. Eight Hours. Personal.} - This maneuver functions like Meditative Insight, but the DM provides a much more complete answer to the question, sufficient to inform you how to solve a challenge or dilemma. Will saves against this effect are made at a +5 bonus, but if they succeed by 10 or fewer points, you still receive information as per Meditative Insight. Protection from divination effects cause this ability to be automatically downgraded to Meditative Insight, but are otherwise ignored. If this effect is downgraded to that of Meditative Insight, you gain the information in the first ten minutes, rather than having to spend the full eight-hour initiation time.

Precognitive Response: {Diamond Mind. Constant. Personal.} - Any time an opponent provokes an Attack of Opportunity from you, you can respond with a standard or move action that targets either the enemy or yourself, rather than a normal attack of opportunity, by spending two of your available attacks of opportunity for the round. You may substitute your immediate action for an AoO if necessary.

Instant Champion: {Iron Heart. One Hour. One Ally.} - This maneuver functions as Instant Apprentice, but provides a much greater wealth of skill. You can only provide this training to one ally per use of this maneuver, and the ally cannot be benefitting from any similar temporary capabilities. The ally immediately receives a BAB to equal your own, all of your combat-related feats, and all of your Strike maneuvers, for the next 24 hours. It also receives your maneuver recovery mechanic.

Redirect Magic: {Iron Heart. Counter. Zone.} - This maneuver functions like Reflect Magic, but you can affect any targeted spell cast into or while within your Zone of Command (including beneficial ones), and redirect any spell you affect to a new target. However, the new target must be a valid target for the spell and within range.

Reveal Hidden Truths: {Setting Sun. Special. One Creature.} - You are a master of manipulation, seamlessly weaving truth and lies to sway the thoughts and feelings of others. With this maneuver, you can alter the memories, beliefs, and even personalities of those you speak to. Minor changes, such as altering a single memory or faint belief, can be done in the course of normal conversation. More serious changes require more detailed discussion and elaborate setup, generally up to one hour per point of the target's Will save for major alterations of memory or beliefs, to one day per point for complete brainwashing. You must be able to interact with the target freely during this time. Regardless, at the end of this period, the target must make a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 Initiator level + Int or Cha modifier) to resist the effect. On a success, it may roll a Sense Motive check against your Bluff check, with a success there rendering it permanently immune to this maneuver from you and allowing it to realize what you were attempting. On a failure, it becomes immune to further efforts to make that specific change, but does not otherwise realize what you were trying to do.

Redirection: {Setting Sun. Counter. Zone.} - You may initiate this maneuver when an opponent takes an action while within your Zone of Command, to attempt to redirect the action to any other valid target in your Zone. The opponent must make a Reflex save (DC 10 + 1/2 Initiator Level + Str or Dex modifier), or you may choose the targeting of the action or where the opponent moves to. You may only redirect actions that are physically performed or have a physical effect that passes through your Zone. For example, you could redirect an arrow passing through your Zone to a new target, redirect a foe's movement through your Zone to a different square, or redirect the targeting of a spell with somatic components and a directed projectile if the caster is within your Zone. You couldn't redirect a spell with no somatic components or no directed projectile, or a lightning bolt cast from outside your Zone that passes into your Zone.

Latent Stealth (Su): {Shadow Hand. Stance. Personal.} - While this maneuver is active, any opponent who cannot perceive you also does not notice the results of your actions (for example, it wouldn't notice that you are opening a door, moving an item, or even attacking one of its allies). Actions that directly affect that character are automatically noticed, but other actions are ignored unless the witness succeeds a Spot check opposed by your Hide check. Even indirect results of your actions are ignored (such as an ally fighting back against you). This check is allowed against each obvious action you perform (that is, an action that affects something the target can perceive), and each obvious action performed in response, and once one succeeds, the witness immediately notices all other latent actions it can still perceive the results of.

Shifting Shades (Su): {Shadow Hand. Stance. Zone.} - Within your Zone of Command, what is real and what is false, what is hidden and what simply isn't there, becomes difficult to recognize. There are two different "phases" within your Zone of Command, neither of which can affect the other. Characters begin "in phase", but with a swift action, you can change the phase of any or all of the characters within your Zone. A character can make a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 Initiator Level + Wis modifier) to avoid its phase being changed, and can spend a full round action to make such a save to change phases. Being out of phase doesn't provide any ability to pass through objects or the like, but you can ignore any objects or effects created by in-phase characters (and likewise, in-phase characters ignore things created by out-of-phase characters). Outside your Zone of Command, these phases don't exist; even if a character was out-of-phase when it, say, cast a Solid Fog spell, if your Zone of Command is not overlapping the Solid Fog, it applies normally to anyone who enters. If multiple characters with this maneuver have overlapping Zones of Command, the same two phases exist, but each character can change others' phases with a swift action. Additionally, as a move action, you can prevent characters in one phase from perceiving characters in the other phase, or restore such visibility.

Earth Sunder: {Stone Dragon. Standard. Zone.} - This maneuver functions like Earth Reaver, but the broken earth gives way to geysers of lava, bottomless pits, and constant quakes and falling structures for one minute per initiator level. Anyone who fails a save to move through the area becomes helpless for one round, and two consecutive failed saves result in death. A flyer who is brought down likewise becomes helpless for a round rather than stunned. Damage dice increase to d10s.

Deny Interaction: {Stone Dragon. Counter. Zone (Mobile).} - Your Zone of Command is inviolate to enemies. Until the end of your next turn, any time an opponent outside your Zone of Command attempts to interact with it (by moving into it, casting a spell into it, firing a projectile into it, etc), you may roll an initiator level check, DC 11 + the opponent's CR. If you succeed, the opponent's action is blocked.

Rapid Respite: {Tiger Claw. One Hour. One or more Allies.} - You see to your allies' comfort and rapid recovery from their challenges, that they are swiftly ready to forge on. Your allies must be at rest while you initiate the maneuver. When you use this maneuver, you provide up to one ally per three levels with the full benefits of a night's rest, allowing them to recover spells, regain daily abilities, and the like. A given character cannot benefit from this maneuver more than once in a 24 hour period.

Master Your Territory: {Tiger Claw. Full Round. Zone (Mobile).} - You move through your Zone of Command in a feral blur, savagely attacking all within. You may make a full attack action against every opponent within your Zone of Command.

Awesome Presence: {White Raven. Constant. Personal.} - Whenever you use a White Raven maneuver that causes a beneficial effect to allies or a negative effect to foes, you can cause both simultaneously. If targeted, you may target one ally and one enemy.

Direct the Troops: {White Raven. Special. Zone.} - You are a supreme master of leadership and tactics. You may spend a standard or full round action to give a move or standard action (respectively) to all allies within your Zone of Command, at the cost of their immediate action for the round. Alternately, you can spend an action of any type to give a single ally within your Zone of Command an action of the same type, at no cost aside from the action you spend.
