Brecht Fencing Maneuveers
Thinking on the Brecht main hand/offhand fighting style of rapier and main-gauche, there aren't really any Battlemaster maneuvers that specifically address that style. For purposes of my Brecht 5E campaign I'm tentatively introducing two new Battlemaster Maneuvers:
Parrying: A character equipped with a rapier and main-gauche adopts a stance to focus his/her offhand on parrying attacks. The character counts as having a shield for Armor Class benefits for this turn.
Main-Gauche Attack: A character equipped with a rapier and main-gauche adopts an aggressive stance, attacking with both rapier and main-gauche.Expend a superiority die and roll a normal attack with the rapier - if the attack hits, character treats the Raouer as a light weapon for this turn. Add the bonus damage to the main-gauche if it hits.
Thoughts on this? This allows non-Battlemaster Fighters to learn the fighting style with a feat. Any adjustments to the wording or rules that you think would benefit or better fit the fighting style?

Isn't Parry listed as one of the Battlemaster techniques? I, personally, love it and see it as a wonderful thing that, along with Defensive Duelist and Riposte, works well as a Swashbuckler-styled Fighter.

Isn't the Two Weapon fighting feat kind of appropriate for Brecht 2 weapon fighers?
It provides more dmg, better ac, and the old quick draw.I like PBEM's.
