Inigo Montoya: You are using Bonetti's Defense against me, ah?
Man in Black: I thought it fitting considering the rocky terrain.
Inigo Montoya: Naturally, you must expect me to attack with Capo Ferro?
Man in Black: Naturally, but I find that Thibault cancels out Capo Ferro. Don't you?
Inigo Montoya: Unless the enemy has studied his Agrippa... which I have!
Four years ago, as we saw the first hints of what 5e would become, I wrote about hoping for more engaging gameplay outside of combat for fighters, based on my experiences from LARPing. In this post, I'm looking at more ways to individuate warrior-types and potentially inform their roleplay. In two UA articles, we've seen Mearls experiment with fighter subclasses that reframe Battle Master-like mechanics, and that's a big part of my underlying concept here.
