Multihanded Weapon [Monstrous, Fighter]
The creature can wield a weapon with three or more hands at once, like a human or dwarf can wield a weapon with two hands.
The creature can wield a single one-handed or two-handed weapon with three or more hands. This allows the creature to multiply its strength bonus by a factor that increase with the number of hands used to wield the weapon. The creature gains 1.0 times its Strength bonus on damage rolls for wielding a weapon with its primary hand, plus .5 times its Strength bonus for each additional off-hand used to wield the weapon. If the primary hand isn't used to wield the weapon, the creature adds .5 times its Strength bonus on damage rolls for each off-hand used to wield the weapon. Benefits are doubled when used in conjunction with the Power Attack feat.
The creature gains no benefit for wielding a weapon with more than two hands.
In conjunction with the Multiweapon Fighting feat the creature can combine use of a weapon with two or more hands and still gain extra attacks for wielding additional weapons in combat. When determining the penalty for wielding a weapon with two or more hands in a multiattack sequence, treat all multihanded weapons as one-handed weapons.
A typical Marilith with Strength 21, Multihanded Weapon and Multiweapon Fighting could wield two greatswords, each with three hands. She would inflict double her Strength bonus on damage inflicted by her primary greatsword (1 for her primary hand plus 2 off-hands * .5 = 2), and 1.5 times her Strength bonus with her off-hand greatsword (3 * .5 = 1.5). She could also drop one of the greatswords to wield the other with all six hands, gaining 3.5 times her Strength bonus on damage rolls (1 for using her primary hand plus 5 * .5 = 2.5 for her 5 off-hands).
