Bracing Strike [General][edit]

You can deal deal devastating damage to any opponent foolish enough to charge you.
Prerequisite: Str 13, Power Attack, base attack bonus +6.
Benefit: Whenever you hit with a readied attack or attack of opportunity against a charging foe, you deal double your weapon's normal damage (just like a lance). This applies against running or withdrawing targets as well. However, it does not function against targets that are moving directly away from you when you take your attack. If you use a weapon that normally deals additional damage for bracing against a charge (such as a pike or spear) this extra damage stacks but is not multiplied accumulatively. For example, a spear deals double damage when you hit a charging foe and this feat allows you to deal double damage when you a charging foe, so combined these effects would allow a spear attack to deal triple damage.
