Power Attack, Grimoire [Fighter] Prerequisites: Strength 13Benefit: You may voluntarily take a penalty to attack to gain a bonus to damage as you put more strength into your blows. If you take a -2 penalty to all attacks that round (including ones to AoOs and the like), you gain +1 base damage on all attacks made during that round. At BAB +3 and every 2 additional BAB afterwards the base damage from this feat increases by one (+2 at 3 BAB, +3 at 5 BAB, +4 at 7 BAB, and so on). If you have a BAB of at least 3, you may instead take a penalty to attack equal to your BAB to double the normal base damage added by this feat. Special: The bonus damage when using an off-hand weapon is equal to the half the base damage. When using a two-handed weapon, multiply the base damage by two. This feat replaces Power Attack for all intents and purposes. This ability does not work with attacks that are grenade-like or that deal splash damage, or with charged attacks such as those generated by spells like Chill Touch and Shocking Grasp. If wielding a shield and nothing else in your offhand, you may lose your shield's bonus to AC for one round to treat your primary weapon as two-handed for the purpose of this feat.
