    Dancing Leaf Discipline



    The Temple of the Nine Swords was an academy of the Sublime Way, where students learned all the arts of bladecraft–the precise, disciplined strikes of the Diamond Mind discipline; the vicious onslaught of blows that made up the Tiger Claw discipline; the subtle deceptions and powerful throws of the Setting Sun discipline, and more. And yet, there exist a handful of martial disciplines never taught there, for a variety of reasons. Some, like the Oncoming Storm discipline, came about after the Temple's fall, while others, such as the Golden Saint or Dread Crown disciplines, were developed by god-like beings and only taught to a few select champions. The Dancing Leaf discipline, however, is different, because it was known to Reshar, founder of the Temple of the Nine Swords. However, the revered blade adept and Master of Nine rejected the discipline, for its art was that of defense–dodging and counterattacks, deft evasion and trickery. While Reshar was a master of many diverse schools of combat, he saw no value in a discipline that taught only how to avoid an attack, and not how to make one. Thus, the teachings of the Dancing Leaf discipline were never brought together in a single place of learning, instead remaining in the hands of a few elder adepts. While these masters have not kept the discipline's ways a secret, few have sought them out to learn the arts of the Dancing Leaf, and fewer still have mastered the ultimate defense.

    The Dancing Leaf discipline's associated skill is Escape Artist, the understanding of graceful movement and evasion the skill entails being essential to the discipline's defensive techniques. The associated weapons of the Dancing Leaf discipline are the longspear, longsword, quarterstaff, scythe, and whip.

    Because the Dancing Leaf discipline was never taught widely at the Temple of the Nine Swords or any similar center of training, most martial adepts do not know any maneuvers from it, or even know it exists. Only Swordsages and Warblades can learn maneuvers from the Dancing Leaf discipline. There are two ways to master the discipline. The first is to have been trained in it. If you choose to make a martial adept that has already been trained in the Dancing Leaf discipline at character creation, you simply replace one discipline that adept could normally learn maneuvers from with the Dancing Leaf discipline.

    The other way is to seek out a master of the Dancing Leaf discipline–a martial adept capable of using at least 5th-level maneuvers from the discipline and to learn Dancing Leaf from that source. You must train for a month under the master, or spend a month in research, and spend 1,000 xp at the end of your training. You gain the ability to learn maneuvers from the Dancing Leaf discipline. In addition, you may exchange your maneuvers known for maneuvers of the Dancing Leaf discipline. You may exchange one maneuver of each level, and the new maneuvers you learn must be of the same level as the exchanged maneuvers, unlike normal. The difficulty of finding an appropriate mentor or text is left to the DM to choose.

    Crawling Ivy Strike
    Dancing Leaf (Strike)
    Level: Swordsage 1, Warblade 1
    Initiation Action: Standard action
    Range: Melee attack
    Target: One creature
    Duration: 1 round

    With a quick, unexpected attack, you throw a foe off his guard, allowing you to dodge his blows with ease. As part of this maneuver, you make a single melee attack against an opponent. If the attack is successful, then you gain a +2 dodge bonus to AC against any melee attack that opponent makes for 1 round.

    Escape the Blade
    Dancing Leaf (Counter)
    Level: Swordsage 1, Warblade 1
    Initiation Action: Immediate action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You

    With a quick step and a pivot, you can deny opportunistic foes the opening they seek. Whenever you take an action that would provoke an opportunity from a creature, you may initiate this maneuver. That action does not provoke any attacks of opportunity.

    Mocking Dryad Stance
    Dancing Leaf (Stance)
    Level: Swordsage 1, Warblade 1
    Initiation Action: Swift action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Stance

    Nothing is more revealing about a foe's combat style than how they miss. By paying careful attention to your foes, you can read their attacks, adapting your defenses appropriately. Whenever an enemy makes a melee attack against you and misses, you may gain a +1 dodge bonus to AC against all melee attacks that enemy makes. You may only have this bonus against one enemy at a time. If you choose to apply it against the attacks of a new enemy, you must give up the bonus to AC against the previous enemy.

    Level: Swordsage 1, Warblade 1
    Initiation Action: Immediate action

    With a watchful eye, you can avoid even sneak attacks and ambushes. Whenever an enemy makes a melee attack against you while you are flatfooted or flanked, you may initiate this maneuver. You gain your Dexterity bonus to AC against that attack, and the enemy making it does not receive any bonuses to the attack if you are flanked, nor do they gain sneak attack or sudden strike damage. This maneuver cannot be used if you are immobilized or unconscious. You may use this maneuver while you are flatfooted, but doing so does not count as an action for purposes of ceasing to be flatfooted.

You can take part of one of your move actions to traverse a wall or other relatively smooth vertical surface if you begin and end your move on a horizontal surface. The height you can achieve on the wall is limited only by this movement restriction. If you do not end your move on a horizontal surface, you fall prone, taking falling damage as appropriate for your distance above the ground.

    Initail questions:
    Did you really mean to explicitly NOT limit the size of the projectile that "Turn Back the Wind" can effect?
    I would think that "Oaken Roots Stance" would reset the bonus any time you moved from the spot (sorta like Dwarven Defender Defensive Stance), as it is, if you were in it before combat started it is always going to be at full power.

    I'll word it so only rounds in an encounter count, and have it reset at the end of an encounter.

    Generally, I like it. A swordsage could combine this and Setting Sun in interesting ways.

    A typo: in your 2nd post, 8th lvl maneuvers, Rain of Jagged Thorns is listed as a Strike.

    People seemed to like this better, but only marginally so - the way one might prefer to be stabbed than shot. Optimally, one isn't stabbed or shot. Optimally, one eats some cake! But there are times when cake is not available, and instead we are destroyed. This is the deep poetry of the universe. -- Tycho Brahe

    Yeah, the original inspiration was that you could effectively run a Swordsage as a ninja with Dancing Leaf/Setting Sun/Shadow Hand.

    This is one of the most interesting disciplines i have seen, very different feel than the 'original' ones, and it fits very nicely with Krimms druid/swordsage prestige class

    I dunno, 9th level maneuver seems a bit lackluster... 15d6? I know it's a defensive discipline, but that just means it should have a counter that does something more reactive that doesn't add damage. Maybe deflecting all attacks that round to anyone in range?

    Well, for the final maneuver, I think the big thing is that the attack automatically misses. That can be huge at this level, especially with attack spells that require attack rolls. The extra damage is icing on the cake. Perhaps it could also give you a dodge bonus to AC for the rest of the round, though.
