Greetings,

Bit unsure on this one, so advice would be appreciated. The question came up as to whether an oversized kusari-gama needs only the Oversized Weapon Proficiency feat to be used proficiently, or it would also need the Oversized Two-Weapon Fighting feat in order to continue being treated as a light weapon in your off-hand.

Can't copy the feats in quite yet, so anyone with access to the Main File your input is appreciated.

Thank you,
TheTrulyAvaricious

My gut instinct is that it would be a required feat based on the wording.

Oversized Two-Weapon Fighting
Prerequisite: Str 13, Two-Weapon Fighting
Benefit: You suffer penalties to attack roll when wielding one-handed weapons in your off-hand as though you were wielding a light weapon instead.

I would say that a kusari-gama is essentially an M-sized weapon (Kama) and S-sized weapon (small bludgeon thing) connected by a chain.

so making it larger would make it L and M. Meaning the extra feat *would* be required.

But it's somewhat open to interpretation.

Both of you are probably right. It's a little confusing what with how Oversized Weapon Proficiency is worded:

Oversized Weapon Proficiency wrote:
You are able to wield oversized weapons proficiently so long as you have proficiency in the base weapon.


Given that the kusari-gama let's you wield it as a double weapon, suffering the penalties for fighting with a one-handed weapon and a light weapon in your off-hand, it almost seemed like just having the Oversized Weapon Proficiency feat would be sufficient. However I guess that the intention is that you would need the Oversized Two-Weapon Fighting feat to pull off this feat. (I slay me with these awful puns).

Thank you both for the help fellow forumites!
