Nort's Universal Martial Maneuvers

I run a D&D game where I use a number of homebrew rules and mechanics to make fights fresh, exhilerating, and to give every player options they can use on their turn. This, combined with abilities pulled from Hit Dice to Heroics and the Martial Arms Training Manual make for very interesting fights. In my current campaign my Fighter player is absolutely loving the ability to respond to things in ways similar to spellcasters- Volley Fire allows them to create an AoE attack ala Fireball while Parry and Riposte gives them a good defensive option ala Shield, all the while not forcing them into using magic to feel powerful or special. This is an excellent addition to any game looking to spice up their combat variety, though players often times need to be nudged into being reminded they have these options to use as many default to just what's on their sheets.

10/10, absolutely love this and would suggest it to anyone who wants to make their martial PCs feel more special and appreciated.

I introduced Nort's U.M.M. to my group a few months ago and we've really enjoyed the added versatility it gives to the melee and martial classes. In addition to helping balance melee and martials with magic users, Nort's U.M.M. has also added a lot of flavour and creativity to encounters. It's been really satisfying seeing players using the manuevers to think outside of the box when fighting. It's also made my job easier by giving me a bit of extra flavour to build the narrative of the fights around. Our Half-Orc Barbarian now tumbles out of the way of attacks and gleefully taunts his enemies to invoke their rage, and our Monk thoroughly enjoying tripping unsuspecting opponents and making dramatic grappling attacks.

I started on the basic version but have since purchased the full version and am really pleased with the ongoing updates and refinements. Definitely worth purchasing and supporting Nort and his brilliant work.
