3e SRD:Two-Weapon Fighting
From D&D Wiki
|This material is published under the OGL 1.0a.|
If a normal character (i.e. a character without the multiattack and/or multidexterity feats) wields a second weapon (fights two handed), that character can get one extra attack per round with that weapon. Fighting in this way is very hard, however, and the character suffers a -6 penalty for regular attacks with the first hand and a -10 penalty to the attack with an other hand. A character can reduce these stiff penalties in three ways:
- The Ambidexterity feat reduces the penalty against the second weapon by 4.
- The Two-Weapon Fighting feat reduces both penalties by 2.
A character can use a double weapon to make an extra attack as if the character were fighting with two weapons. The penalties apply as if the off-hand weapon were light. If the character does not elect to take the extra attack, the character is not penalized for fighting with two weapons.
Gaining the extra attack from fighting with two weapons always requires the use of the Full Attack action, even when using a double weapon.
