When someone power attacks does it look differn't than a normal attack? I was thinking they might "wind up" before attacking like on a cartoon
Tongue sticking out like Groo the Wanderer (or Jordan).
My personal houserule: Anyone who insists their charcter does a "Street Fighter/Dragonball Z"-esque wind-up for a power strike or critical hit gets a book thrown at their head.
Narratively speaking, a power strike would probably look like the character took a much harder swing, or set themself before lunging forward, something like that... Whatever fully committing to that particular attack looks like.
I wouldn't throw any books at their head, but I might say a character flailing around like a cartoon would provoke attacks of opportunity.
Sometimes I think Power Attack should come with an equivalent AC penalty for the attacker.
Nah, it just happens in slow motion, like any good power attack.
