[BETA] Two-Weapon Fighting

Postby Vaal » Tue May 31, 2016 10:37 am

I've done some tweaking of this since the WoE Reloaded blog post. Not Techniques yet, as I need to devise an entire system for techniques still. These are the feats though. The plan is for 10-15 feats for the common combat forms (TWF, THF, Sword and Board, and Unarmed) including weapon specific feats and the basic stances.

Two-Weapon Fighting

Fighting With Two Weapons

Any character may wield a second weapon in their non-dominant hand (known as your off hand). If they do, they may choose to make an attack with that weapon with a -4 penalty to the attack. This penalty is reduced to -2 if the off-hand weapon is light.

Two-Weapon Fighting Feats

Two-Weapon Combat [Battle Stance]
Prerequisite: Dex 13+

Benefit: While in the Two-Weapon Combat battle stance; whenever you are allowed to make a Basic Strike, you may make an attack with both weapons at a -2 penalty to both attacks. This penalty is -1 if the off-hand weapon is light.

You can also make your normal attack rolls with either weapon without penalty.

Special: You can only enter this battle stance if you are wielding a weapon in each hand, or a double weapon.

Special: You may take a second stance while remaining in this stance. The effects of the two stances stack.



Dual Blade Adept
Prerequisites: Two-Weapon Combat, Light Blade proficiency

Benefit: While in the Two-Weapon Combat battle stance and wielding two Light Blades, you gain a +1 to damage rolls made with your Light Blades per 5 character levels to a minimum of +1.



Two-Weapon Butchery
Prerequisites: Two-Weapon Combat, Ax proficiency

Benefit: While in the Two-Weapon Combat battle stance and wielding two axes, your axes threaten a critical hit on a 19-20, or if they already threaten critical hits on a 19-20 or better, you gain a +2 insight bonus to attack rolls to confirm critical hits with your axes.



Double Draw
Prerequisites: Two-Weapon Combat, Dex 13+

Benefit: You may draw one weapon in each hand as part of the same action.



Highwayman's Rejoinder
Prerequisites: Two-Weapon Combat, Off-hand Parry

Benefit: While in the Two-Weapon Combat battle stance, while wielding one one-handed weapon and one light weapon, whenever you successfully parry an attack, you may immediately make a Basic Strike attack with your off-hand weapon only as a swift action.



Off-hand Parry
Prerequisite: Two-Weapon Combat

Benefit: While in the Two-Weapon Combat battle stance, the first parry attempt you make does not use up your reaction* for the turn.



Twinned Maneuver
Prerequisites: Two-Weapon Combat, Int 13+

Benefit: While in the Two-Weapon Combat battle stance, you can attempt to use ta combat maneuver with both weapons you wield. If you do so, you gain a +1 bonus to your Combat Maneuver Bonus per 5 character levels, minimum +1.



Twin Impact
Prerequisites: Two-Weapon Combat, Hammer Proficiency

Benefit: While in the Two-Weapo Combat battle stance and wielding two Hammers, you add your 1.5 x your STR modifier to damage rolls made with your Hammers.



Off-Hand Assault
Prerequisites: Two-Weapon Combat, BaB +5

Benefit: While in the Two-Weapon Combat battle stance, whenever you miss with a technique that does not require Two-Weapon Combat, you may make a Basic Strike with your off-hand weapon as a reaction.



Off-Hand Defense
Prerequisites: Two-Weapon Combat, BaB +5

Benefit: While in the Two-Weapon Combat battle stance, you gain a +1 shield bonus to AC. This bonus increased to +2 at character level 9, and +3 at character level 18.
