I - Rules
|Effect:||When you make a Melee attack, you gain +1 Damage for each monster adjacent to you beyond the first one.
In addition, each time you use a Melee attack to deal the killing blow to an enemy figure, you inflict 1 wound (ignoring armor) to all enemy figures adjacent to it. If the figure is Undying, this effect does not happen unless the figure stays dead.

II - Tactics
Brawler is a good skill to have if lots of monsters are roaming the dungeon and the overlord is not careful when moving them. Otherwise, it is better to have a skill like Mighty that gives the hero a constant +2 Damage on Melee attacks.
The secondary effect - one wound to all enemy figures adjacent to the killed monster - is annoying for the overlord who has to keep track of all the monsters' wounds.
