Way, way back when, I got the Malefactor class booklet as part of a kickstarter promo and fell in love with the idea of the class. A GM I had gamed with previously (who is all about homebrew and custom content) said he was going to run a new game and that we could run whatever 3pp material if he decided it was balanced enough. We both enjoyed Tome of Battle and he made liberal use of 3.5 splat material in his PF games. I asked him about writing a custom PrC to use in this game to cross the Malefactor and the Swordsage. I came up with Yla's Blade to that end, which ended up becoming approved.
The game is over, but the battle is not finished. I'm not very familiar with Path of War, but I would like to convert this to use with the Stalker instead of the Swordsage, and would appreciate any input. I would be preferable to keep the feel of the class, the debuffer that can also effectively melee.
