If you’re interesting in submitting a maneuver please use the below template for submissions and leave a comment.  I reserve the right to edit any accepted submissions but the source will be cited.

Name of Maneuver
Difficulty: Easy/Moderate/Hard (How hard is it to coordinate and execute)
Frequency: Rare/Uncommon/Common/Very Common (How often might you encounter this maneuver or variations of it in oRvR
Type: Static/Dynamic – Offensive/Defensive
Risk: Low/Moderate/High (How risky is the maneuver to your warband)
Requirement: (1 warband, 2 warbands, etc … )
Application: (When to use it)
