    Default [3.5, ToB] Do the Impossible (PEACH)

    Impassable Passions



    Nothing about this discipline is reasonable, which is one of the reasons it was not taught at the temple of nine swords. Another reason is that it requires a certain degree of disorder, and those ingrained in the law can't quite comprehend the discipline, because it breaks most known laws of both physics and reality, but that's all part of the point. The normality of most martial maneuvers is based on these artificial constraints, and this discipline seeks to break those, to do the impossible as it where. The original master of the discipline was a great warrior whose name has been lost to time, but he lives on forever in the hearts and minds of the practitioners of it, and his teachings make him more than a man. The skill for Impassable Passions is Intimidate and the associated weapons are unarmed strikes, bastard swords, drills, greatswords and mauls.

    Practitioners of this discipline can not be lawful, but otherwise come from all walks of life. A certain determination and passion is needed to use this discipline to the fullest, and a drive to live life to the fullest also helps. The discipline has many defensive maneuvers, which allow an initiator to break out of normal bonds, and to kick reason to the curb. Any initiator class may learn from the discipline, so long as they have the determination and are not lawful. If you choose to learn it from character creation, give up one previously known school and replace it with this.

    The other way is to seek out a special place full of burning passion where you can mediate and discover it in yourself. This could be just about anywhere, but is intensely personal and should be of great significance to the character. After one week of contemplation you discover your burning passion, and lose 1000 xp points. You may then learn maneuvers from the discipline and may exchange one maneuver per level for any maneuver of equal to that lost, unlike normal replacing of maneuvers.

    Break Bonds
    Impassable Passions (Stance)
    Level: Crusader 1, Swordsage 1, Warblade 1
    Initiation Action: Swift Action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Stance

    The man of indomitable spirit does no flee, or submit to the chains of lesser men, he breaks his way out of any situation.

    Your muscles seem to almost burst when you attempt to break things, and with one last push it all crumbles. When in this stance you gain +8 on strength checks to break objects, such as bursting rope or chain or kicking down doors or walls. You also gain a +4 bonus to sunder attempts.

    Impossible Girth

    Impassable Passions (Strike)
    Level: Crusader 1, Swordsage 1, Warblade 1
    Initiation Action: Standard Action
    Range: Melee Attack
    Target: One Creature

    Kick logic out and do the impossible, there is no reasonable limit to the size of a manís weapon, let it enlarge and strengthen to crush any opposition.

    Your weapon grows in size and shape, and seems especially deadly in your hands. When initiating this strike your weapon grows one size category larger in terms of damage, though this does not increase its reach and you can still use it with no penalties. In addition if it is a two handed weapon you now deal twice strength damage instead of 1 Ĺ, and if it is 1 handed it deals 1 Ĺ strength damage.

    Ludicrous Length
    Impassable Passions (Boost)
    Level: Crusader 1, Swordsage 1, Warblade 1
    Initiation Action: Swift Action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Until beginning of next turn

    You think Iím going to run? Who do you take me for, Iíll fight you wherever you are.

    Your weapon extends to seemingly impossible lengths, stretching to oblivion and beyond. When initiating this boost your natural reach increases by 5 feet until the end of your next turn, this affects attacks of opportunity in addition to any attacks or maneuvers you make this turn.

    Skywalker
    Impassable Passions (Boost)
    Level: Crusader 1, Swordsage 1, Warblade 1
    Initiation Action: Swift Action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 3 rounds

    No matter whatís in my way I wonít stop, Iíll charge through plants and rocks all the same.

    You brush through trees and bushes like they are not there, charging to meet your enemy as quick as possible. When initiating this boost you may ignore difficult terrain for the duration, including gaining the ability to charge over it.


    2nd Level

    Show
    Impairments Are Meaningless
    Impassable Passions (Boost)
    Level: Crusader 2, Swordsage 2, Warblade 2
    Initiation Action: Swift action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: One Round

    If there isnít a path Iíll carve one myself, no obstacle will stand in the way, and if there is one Iíll break it down.

    You initiate this maneuver by crying out at whatever may be in your way, and daring them to defy you. For one round you gain the benefits of a freedom of movement spell.

    Probability Punch
    Impassable Passions (Strike)
    Level: Crusader 2, Swordsage 2, Warblade 2
    Initiation Action: Standard Action
    Range: Melee Attack
    Target: One Creature

    It seems Theoretical calculations are meaningless when dealing with someone like me, I defy convention and odds all the same.

    With this maneuver you ignore typical restraints on the likelihood of hitting, defying the laws of reality itself. When you initiate this strike you may ignore 20% miss chance, and make 50% into only 20%, as well as gain +2 to hit.

    Threshold of Willpower

    Impassable Passions (Counter)
    Level: Crusader 2, Swordsage 2, Warblade 2
    Initiation Action: Immediate action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Until the end of your next turn

    A manís man sustained by strength of will, thatís who I am, unnerved by seemingly horrendous injuries, denying them until the time is right.

    When you are damaged by any source you may put off that damage, equal to a number 5 x Il (Maximum 50) until the end of your next turn, this is effectively refusing to acknowledge anything has happened until you are ready for it. This stacks with a Crusaderís damage pool.

    Unreasonable Kick
    Impassable Passions (Strike)
    Level: Crusader 2, Swordsage 2, Warblade 2
    Initiation Action: Standard Action
    Range: Melee Attack
    Target: One Creature

    Kick reason to the curb and make the impossible possible, nothing will stop you now.

    With this maneuver you realize that you are only yourself, that nothing else can change you. When you initiate this maneuver you make a melee attack, ignoring all positive and negative effects not originating from you, that affect you.

    Believe in Yourself
    Impassable Passions (Counter)
    Level: Crusader 3, Swordsage 3, Warblade 3
    Prerequisite: One Impassible Passions maneuver
    Initiation Action: Immediate action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Instantaneous

    I am myself, I am no one else and will have no one else control me, nor allow anyone to influence me.

    With this maneuver you shrug off the effects of any mind-affecting compulsion or charm on you, effectively dispelling it.

    Grit Those Teeth
    Impassable Passions (Strike)
    Level: Crusader 3, Swordsage 3, Warblade 3
    Prerequisite: One Impassible Passions maneuver
    Initiation Action: Standard action
    Range: Melee Attack
    Target: One Ally

    Come here, weíve already won, just realize that and ignore whatever foul affect is befouling you.

    When initiating this maneuver you make a melee attack against an ally, this deals non-lethal damage and allows you to dispel any single mind-affecting spell on them, any single negative condition such as fatigued, or any ability score damage to one score.

    Those Canít Break Me
    Impassable Passions (Stance)
    Level: Crusader 3, Swordsage 3, Warblade 3
    Prerequisite: One Impassible Passions maneuver
    Initiation Action: Swift action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Stance

    I never yield, never retreat, and never regret, I am only empowered by the things that weaken others, continuing on no matter what.

    While in this stance you take conditions on as boons not drawbacks. Any negative condition, ie fatigued, that is affecting you gives you a +1 to hit and damage, up to a maximum of your initiator level. Each negative level you have counts as 1 for this purpose.

    Thrusting Strike
    Impassable Passions (Strike)
    Level: Crusader 3, Swordsage 3, Warblade 3
    Prerequisite: One Impassible Passions maneuver
    Initiation Action: Full Round Action
    Range: Twice your movement speed
    Target: One creature

    Donít give up, go and hit that target no matter where he is, fly if you have to.

    When you initiate this maneuver you become so determined that you immediately charge towards an opponent. As part of this maneuver move twice your speed towards the target, no matter what direction they are in, this includes vertical movement, if you can reach them with this you can make a standard charge attack, including the +2 bonus.

    Level: Crusader 4, Swordsage 4, Warblade 4
    Prerequisite: One Impassible Passions maneuver
    Initiation Action: Standard action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: One Round

    We kick and scream and fight like hell and in the end weíre always standing, or at least I am.

    When you initiate this maneuver you simply refuse to be hit, refuse to lose to any of those losers. You gain +4 to all saves, and +4 to AC until the beginning of your next turn.

    Never Fall Down
    Impassable Passions (Counter)
    Level: Crusader 4, Swordsage 4, Warblade 4
    Prerequisite: One Impassible Passions maneuver
    Initiation Action: Immediate action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You

    Canít a guy get a little bit of sleep around here, even when Iím dead theyíll still want me, may as well get back up.

    Immediately after falling unconscious for damage you may initiate this maneuver to gain 1d4xIL health, and get back up as a free action with no attacks of opportunity.


    Spirit Breaker

    Impassable Passions (Strike)
    Level: Crusader 4, Swordsage 4, Warblade 4
    Prerequisite: One Impassible Passions maneuver
    Initiation Action: Standard action
    Range: Melee Attack
    Target: One wall

    If thereís a wall Iíll break it down, nothing in the world can stop me when I need to go somewhere.

    Sometimes you simply need to get rid of a wall and hammering away at it all day just takes too long. With this maneuver you make a dispel check against any wall spell with a duration measured in rounds with a CL equal to your IL (though with no limit of 10), and if youíre successful the wall falls and the caster takes spell level d6 damage.


    5th Level

    Impossible Arm
    Impassable Passions (Strike)
    Level: Crusader 5, Swordsage 5, Warblade 5
    Prerequisite: Two Impassible Passions maneuvers
    Initiation Action: Full Round Action
    Range: Melee range + 10 feet
    Target: One creature

    Certain kill, with this you have no chance of survival, may as well give up now.

    With a burst of passion you pin an enemy creature and prepare to deliver a fatal blow to them. They may make a strength check with DC equal to 15 + your Cha modifier, and if theyíre successful they merely take normal damage, if they fail it is a critical hit. With this attack your weapon grows three sizes with damage increases, though no increase in range and you can wield it with no penalty, in addition if the weapon is two handed you deal x3 strength damage with it, and x2 if it is one handed.

    Pierce the Heavens
    Impassable Passions (Stance)
    Level: Crusader 5, Swordsage 5, Warblade 5
    Prerequisite: Two Impassible Passions maneuvers
    Initiation Action: Swift
    Range: Personal
    Target: You

    My drill is the drill that will echo through the heavens, with seemingly endless possibilities.

    While in this stance you feel that there are no true constraints, you can go anywhere you wish. You gain a fly speed of half your base land speed with perfect maneuverability. When you move at least 30 feet with this stance you also gain freedom of movement until the beginning of your next turn.

    Surge of Energy

    Impassable Passions (Counter)
    Level: Crusader 5, Swordsage 5, Warblade 5
    Prerequisite: Two Impassible Passions maneuvers
    Initiation Action: Immediate Action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You

    Donít underestimate me, I can defy anything you throw at me, laugh at effects that would stop any lesser man, and break through to heaven.

    You may ignore one of the following conditions for the duration of the encounter even if you would not otherwise be able to act: Paralyzed, Stunned, Cowering, Dazed, Exhausted, Petrified, or Blinded. Becoming immune an effect also makes you immune to any lesser affects along the chain, such that immunity to cowering makes you immune to being frightened.

    Level: Crusader 6, Swordsage 6, Warblade 6

    Range: Melee range
    Target: One creature

    I will open a hole in the universe and through it you will see your past and present attack you and destroy your present self.

    When initiating this maneuver you rip a hole through time. You choose two strikes you have known, but not necessarily readied, and initiate both of them, one must be 2nd level or lower, and the other must be 4th level or lower.

    Furious Strike
    Impassable Passions (Strike)
    Level: Crusader 6, Swordsage 6, Warblade 6
    Prerequisite: Two Impassible Passions maneuvers
    Initiation Action: Standard Action
    Range: 100 ft
    Target: One creature

    Letís go, anywhere you are I will be too.

    Unbreakable Will
    Impassable Passions (Counter)
    Level: Crusader 6, Swordsage 6, Warblade 6
    Prerequisite: Two Impassible Passions maneuvers
    Initiation Action: Immediate
    Range: Personal
    Target: You

    He takes the blazing sun in his bare hands and endures the searing heat, denying all accusations of pain.

    When initiating this maneuver you realize you need a bit more time, and that you canít falter now. You may delay up to 10 x IL (Max 200) damage from a single attack until the end of your next turn. This stacks with a crusaderís delayed damage pool.

    Range: Melee range
    Target: One creature
    Save: Will Negates

    I donít care about time or space, theyíre simply rules that try to stop the impossible from happening, go to somewhere else.


    When initiating this maneuver you rip a hole through time and space. You smash an opponent and affect him as though he was hit by a banishment spell, even if he was on his native plane. If he is not extraplanar randomly determine where he goes.

    Target: You

    Transforming the infinite darkness into light I transcend the traditional mortality to arrive at something much greater.


    When initiating this maneuver you ignore your bodyís restrictions and choose to keep on fighting. When you are subjected to enough damage that you would otherwise be dead or unconscious you instead heal 1d6xIL points of damage before the damage, subtracting it from the damage done and gaining any excess in health.

    Smashing through both karma and fate I dare others to sustain what I have, to keep going after all that happens.

    You donít need luck, you donít need to know the odds, you simply beat the odds, every time. When in this stance treat a natural 1 as a natural 20, and even on checks where a natural 20 is not normally an automatic success, it now is.

    There is nothing but passion in this ultimate demonstration of the power of life. Your opponent makes a strength check against DC 19 + Cha and if he fails you deal critical hit damage with the multiplier increased by 1. Either way your weapon increases by five size categories in terms of damage, and you deal 4 times your strength modifier, or 3 times if youíre using a one handed weapon.

    It's kind of intentional.

    So I guess what I'm looking for is opinions on its relative power, because I was emulating iron heart surge with some of these, though more limited, so am kind of worried about being too powerful.

    I'm going learn how to use Tomb of Battle now.

    This absolutely catches the nature and feeling of the show, which is awesome. While I know little about maneuvers, they seem to keep to a series of central themes, which is nice and provides direction. I approve!

    First glance? Awesome. And Burning Energy is denoted as a strike. Which it is not. I'd check the rest to see if they have similar errors.

    I was actually going to mention that you have a weaker version of IHS at the same level.
    Not just weaker from being less open-ended, but also weaker because it can only shake off mind-affecting and compulsion effects.

    Well 2 of the bad things about IHS are the standard action it takes to active, and thus can't be done when you'd want to do it, and the open endedness of it which allows you to end things which you shouldn't be able to, I aimed to fix it with the couple more limited but still useful maneuvers, as counters they are quite useful, especially in getting rid of dominations, which I know has been an everpresent issues in my games.

    The first stance seems a bit weak, but breaking bonds and such very rarely comes up in the campaigns I play in. it could really use some kind of combat-related bonus too, I just can't think of what exactly.

    But otherwise, very awesome.

    Agreed on break bonds: it's probably too situational to be worth spending one of your few stances on.

    A bonus on sundering? On saves and checks vs. entanglement and paralyzation? Something like that.

    So I added a bonus to sundering to break bonds, and am wondering whether ignoring half of hardness on objects would be too much.
