Text of the help file brace.en inside {prefix}/share/crossfire/help folder of the server installation :

When you enter the 'brace' command to brace your character, your character will no longer move.
It can still attack adjoining spaces.
Bracing can be useful to hold a location.
When you are braced, you lose your dex bonus and incur a 2 point ac penalty beyond that
(if you have a negative dex bonus, you may in fact come out ahead.

You also only get 20% of the normal experience for killing creatures,
and incurs a 4 point wc (to hit) penalty.
