One of my players is playing a Barbarian that has taken levels in stalwart defender. They have been using the calm stance rage power to allow themselves to utilize the Defensive stance ability of the stalwart defender. I've allowed it so far, mostly because I kept forgetting to look up the stalwart defender.
Does the state of calm part of the calm stance rage power override the restriction on entering defensive stance while raged?
Calm Stance (Ex):
The barbarian can enter a state of calm. While in this stance, the barbarian doesn’t gain any benefits from rage other than the temporary hit points, but she doesn’t take any of the penalties from rage (including the penalty to AC and the restriction on actions she can take). Rounds spent in a calm stance still count against her total number of rounds of rage per day. This is a stance rage power.
Defensive Stance (Ex):
.... A defensive stance requires a level of emotional calm, and it may not be maintained by a character in a rage (such as from the rage class feature or the rage spell).
