Close Miss [Fighter] Prerequisites: BAB +3, Power AttackBenefit: If you use the Power Attack feat at a penalty of -2 or more and would have hit the enemy had you not used Power Attack, you instead deal damage to your target equal to the damage you would have dealt from your strength modifier added to the damage you would have dealt that was derived from the Power Attack feat. Example: Bob the fighter has +5 BAB, and a Strength modifier of +4 for an attack roll of +9. With his two-handed battle-axe, he attacks a foe with 18 AC taking a -5 penalty to Power Attack, and rolls a 12 for a total of 17. Since he would have hit had he not used Power Attack, instead of whiffing completely he deals 6 (his strength modifier multiplied by one and a half) + 10 (double his damage from Power Attack) damage instead since he's wielding a two-handed weapon.Special: Any feats and abilities that would normally modify the damage for Power Attack do not apply to the damage dealt by this feat.
