Re: Synchronized Swordsman (PRC)
Okay. What about allowing it multiple times per round, which means you can have one partner TWFing, triggering abunch of attacks from the other partner with a greatsword.

Maybe something like Twinned Strike and Retaliatory Defense.
Alright, if were not doing AoO-passing, we'll need another powerful class feature.
I may use the name "Synchronized Strike" For some thing where the two partners attack simultaneously, if both hit the enemy makes a fort save DC 10+ Damage Taken or else get's stunned.
Hmm, some other potential ideas
Two-Man Takedown: One partner makes a Trip check against an opponent, if this succeeds, the other partner may (provided they haven't gone yet), make a single attack at their highest base attack bonus on the now-prone foe. This attack automatically threatens a critical.
Edit: Also, maybe somthing that lets the partners occupy the same 5-ft square (Great for narrow tunnel fighting).
