Battlefield rumor holds that there exists an old and powerful martial tradition, practiced by elite dwarven defenders, hobgoblin shock troopers, and battle-mad berserkers. No warrior truly knows the origin of this discipline, though many cultures claim it as their creation. However, all know of its power, the might of the Army of One discipline. Those trained in it can fight off entire legions, shatter the morale of armies with a glare, and duel with foes on opposite sides of a battlefield all at once. The Army of One discipline's associated skill is Intimidate, as it relies on fear tactics to effectively combat large numbers. The associated weapons of the Army of One discipline are the battleaxe, dueling shield, glaive, greatsword, longsword, and spear.
Because the Army of One 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 Crusaders and Warblades can learn maneuvers from the Army of One 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 Army of One discipline at character creation, you simply replace one discipline that adept could normally learn maneuvers from with the Army of One discipline.
The other way is to seek out a master of the Army of One discipline–a martial adept capable of using at least 5th-level maneuvers from the discipline, and to learn Army of One from them. 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 Army of One discipline. In addition, you may exchange your maneuvers known for maneuvers of the Army of One 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.
