Chapter 2: Expanded Character Options[edit]

This is what I like - new stuff! There's got to be thousands of interesting things out there that Reshar didn't tell us about.

- Avara

Keep your exuberance under control, child.

- Arminius

Just as there are many ways to learn how to be a martial adept besides the ones advocated by Reshar, there are also many school-specific practices and approaches outside of maneuvers that Reshar did not incorporate or teach about. This chapter contains information on all of them.

Alternative Class Features[edit]

Not every practitioner of the same style is the same, and alternative class features are a good way to represent this. Additionally, some of these have been added to make it easier to incorporate existing material with the new material presented here.

List of ACFs[edit]

Name Description
Infinite Lotus Disciple You are in-tune with the Infinite Lotus in a way your brother and sister martial adepts are not, at the cost of some diversity.

Feats and Traits[edit]

Feats and traits are great ways to personalize your martial adepts, and many of these are designed to work with the other options presented here. Additionally, many new tactical feats are in this section, which can be used by everyone, but work best for martial adepts.
