First Rank (Style, Tactical)

Prerequisites: Base attack bonus +5, Battle 8 ranks, Centurion.
Benefits: You gain the following tactical options:

Spear Dance (stance): You may enter this stance as a swift action. While in this stance, you may use reach weapons to attack adjacent enemies, even if you normally could not. However, you cannot attack both adjacent enemies and enemies who are not adjacent in the same round–you must choose one or the other. You may never be in more than one stance at a time. You may spend only 5 total rounds per minute in a stance, and after entering this stance you remain in it until you leave it as a free action or enter a new stance using a swift action.

Thousand Swords Bulwark (stance): You may enter this stance as a swift action. Whenever an opponent misses you with a melee attack while you are in this stance, you and all your allies gain the benefits of flanking whenever you attack that enemy for one round. You may never be in more than one stance at a time. You may spend only 5 total rounds per minute in a stance, and after entering this stance you remain in it until you leave it as a free action or enter a new stance using a swift action.
