Could a four or six limbed Gumoshin character dual-wield (or possibly even tri-wield for the 6er) Zanbatou?

And would a 6-limber be able to dual-wield gargantuan zanbatou by holding them three limbs at a time?

Possibly and no. d20M has absolutely nothing on multi-armed creatures, I'd have to dig it up and I'm not too motivated to do that right now.

The only experience I have with multi-limbed creatures was a four armed character in an apocalypse campaign. As far as I remember the extra arms did offer extra "off hand" attacks.

I looked up the mutation that offers extra arms in d20 future and it mentions nothing of holding extra weapons but, presumably it is possible since it does mention the extra "off hands".

Without the two weapon fighting feat you are still looking at a -6/-10 to attacks, -4/-4with it. Then you need monkey grip to remove the -4.

I think by game stats it would be possible but, thinking about in normally even with two arms on each side it woul be nearly impossible to wield them right. Since you cant hold it right with two right (or left) hands you would have one sword in the way of the other. So, it probably shouldn't be possible but, you never know what ninja can do sometimes.


Hope that made some sence. I will do some further digging into my many books if I get the chance.

Actually they made feats for people who want to wield weapons past two weapon fighting (for people with multiple limbs past 2)

They called it multi weapon fighting. It's essentially the same as two weapon, but for additional limbs.

No, the multiattack feat from the monster manual is two-weapon fighting, only for natural weapons, like bites, claws and tail-whips. This would be a feat for someone with four or six arms and using weapons in them, like a Mirilith.

Look at the feat below it.
