Phalanx Formation [Fighter, General] (from the Player's Guide to Fighters and Barbarians)
You are skilled at fighting within a phalanx.
Prerequisites: Blindside, Formation Combat, Military Training.
Benefit: You are comfortable fighting in close formation and are skilled at using a reach weapon in close combat. As a free action, you may change your grip on a reach weapon to attack an opponent 5 feet away. In addition, if two shield-bearing characters with this feat stand within 5 feet of one another, they are both treated as having cover (giving hem a +4 cover bonus to Armor Class). If these characters stand between an opponent and another ally, the ally they are protecting is treated as having improved cover (giving him a +8 cover bonus to Armor Class). if three or more characters with this feat stand in a straight line, they and all those behind them are treated as having improved cover (giving them all a +8 cover bonus to Armor Class).
