Caress the One, the Never-Fading
Amaranth Eclipse (Stance)
Level: 8
Prerequisite: Four Amaranth Eclipse maneuvers, Int 9, Wis 12
Initiation Action: 1 swift action
Range: Personal
Target: You
Duration: Stance
Saving Throw: None

You glow blood-red for a moment, then roar mightily and break the will of your enemies. As they flee before you, their bodies flash snow-white, and you draw energy from their shattered confidence and use it to repair your wounds.

This maneuver isn't part of the original Amaranth Eclipse discipline; it was developed by a monk who adapted its techniques into his own fighting style. (In fact, if not for its tendency to promote spreading fear for fear's sake, the Devoted Spirit discipline would probably be eager to claim this maneuver for its own.) The nature of this technique requires its user to be a bit more enlightened than the average orc, but those who master it are rewarded with the power to heal their own wounds by feeding off the fear and panic they sow among their enemies.

While in this stance, whenever you succeed on an Intimidate check against an opposed roll or a DC (including a duel of wills[1] or an Intimidate check that you make as part of another maneuver - even a maneuver not from the Amaranth Eclipse discipline), you heal 1 point of damage for each point by which you beat the opposing roll or DC.

This stance does not allow you to derive any (extra) healing from an Intimidate check made without any sort of opposing value (such as the Intimidate check made to determine how many temporary hp you gain from devil in the mirror), nor does it grant you any healing when you substitute another skill or other value for an Intimidate check (such as using the Unnerving Calm[1] feat to substitute Concentration for Intimidate in a duel of wills[1]). This maneuver is a supernatural ability.

Caress the one, the Never-Fading
Rain in your heart, the tears of snow-white sorrow!
Caress the one, the hiding amaranth
In a land of the daybreak!
