Power Attack [Tactical]

Prerequisite: Str 13.

You have learned how to capitalize upon your weapon’s weight, using lighter weapons to create a flurry of strikes and heavier weapons to create more punishing strikes. As a free action, you may elect to take a penalty of any size up to your character level on all attack rolls for 1 round. The benefit that you receive in return depends on what type of weapon you are using.

Light Weaponry: When making a full attack, you may make a number of extra attacks at his full base attack bonus equal to half of the penalty.

One-handed Weaponry: The fighter receives a bonus to all damage rolls equal to half of the penalty, rounded down. Furthermore, when making a full attack, he may make a number of extra attacks at his full base attack bonus equal to one-fourth of the penalty, rounded down.

Two-handed Weaponry: The fighter receives a bonus to all damage rolls equal to the penalty.

If wielding two weapons, choose one to which the benefit applies (the benefit does not apply to attacks with the other weapon, even if the weapons are of the same kind). If you change weapons after using this ability, the bonuses end but the penalty remains (unless taking out another weapon of the same kind). You may only use this ability once per round.
