    Warrior's Soul


    The Warrior's Soul discipline is available to any initiator with an essentia pool, though they must sacrifice another discipline known to them to learn maneuvers from this path.

    Many of the maneuvers of the Warrior's Soul allow you to invest essentia in them. Doing so is a full-round action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity, in which you fill readied Warrior's Soul maneuvers with essentia as you wish, much like allocating essentia to soulmelds. Unlike soulmelds, however, Warrior's Soul maneuvers follow their own essentia allotment progression, as seen on the table below.

    {table=head]Initiator Level|Maximum Essentia
    1-2| 1
    3-5| 2
    6-9| 3
    10-13|4
    14-17|5
    18-20|6[/table]

    When a readied maneuver invested with essentia is initiated, the essentia is returned the the initiator's essentia pool, ready to be allocated as they wish, but no longer allocated to that maneuver.

    Unless otherwise noted, all Warrior's Soul maneuvers are supernatural abilities.

    The associated skill for this discipline is Concentration, and its associated weapons are the longsword, bastard sword, greatsword, hand axe, and greataxe.
