What follows is a first attempt at a preliminary handbook for Tome of Battle. I have however avoided calling it a handbook because an effort to make a guide so comprehensive as to deserve the name is likely a futile endeavour. Instead this is intended as a general introduction to the book for someone just picking it up for the first time.
Right now this is a work in progress, some sections (PRCs especially) are very sparse at the moment, I'm just posting it now to get things started and start getting feedback/contributions (this job is too big for one person!).
So, what I'm looking for is any thoughts on good feats or other worthwhile options for the various classes, as well as sample builds for the various classes. I'm quite happy with the Crusader section, but Swordsage and Warblade are harder to pin down to definable roles. If anyone has more experience with them then any thoughts would be appreciated. And if anyone has an iconic Swordsage 20 or Warblade 20 build with sample maneuver progressions to show people a suggested baseline from which to start working (I'll do em myself when I get chance, but if someone wants to do it great). Also, any help on the Swordsage, Bloodstorm Blade, Deepstone Sentinel, JPM and Shadow Sun Ninja would be appreciated as they are the classes I am least familiar with.
