Weapon Brace [General, Fighter]

By bracing your weapons together, you can resist a Sundering attack more effectively.

Prerequisite

Base attack bonus +2

Benefit

When fighting with two weapons you automatically brace your two weapons together to increase their resistance to a Sunder attack; add half (round down) the "other" weapon's hardness to the hardness of the weapon being Sundered. Half (round up) of any Sunder damage which exceeds this increased hardness is applied to the targeted weapon’s hit points; the remaining damage is applied to the bracing weapon’s hit points.

Example

Rorwernrn brought her guisarme down in a mighty two-handed strike at the halfling's paired shortswords. The halfling rogue quickly braced her weapons against the blow, giving her shortsword a Hardness of 15 (10 for steel, +5 for braced steel weapon). The guisarme strike inflicts 16 damage; without bracing, the halfling's shortsword would have been shattered! It is left with a large crack, however (only 1 of its 2 hit points remain).
