Am I interpreting this right? A monster or character with Two-Weapon Wielder, Lightning Attack, and at least four arms can make three separate Lightning Attacks? Provided the relevant text below:
The rules for Two-Weapon Fighting (page 244):
"If a character with the Two-Weapon Wielder (Melee) Talent is armed with two melee weapons, he may perform a melee Attack Action (either a Standard Attack, Swift Attack, or Lightning Attack) with one of these weapons. He may then perform a melee Attack Action (either a Standard Attack, Swift Attack, or Lightning Attack) with the other weapon, with any applicable modifiers to the Test. This target may be against any target in melee."
Okay, seems pretty clear. The being can take two Lightning Attack actions, one with each hand, along with appropriate penalties, described below:
- -10 for Lightning Attack
- -20 on main hand, -40 on off hand if the entity possess only Two-Weapon Wielder
- -10 on both hands if the entity is Ambidextrous and has Two-Weapon Wielder
- +0 on both hands if the entity has Blade Dancer, Two-Weapon Wielder, and is Ambidextrous
The rules for Multiple Arms (X) (page 141)
"...for each pair of arms it has - the Multiple Arms value divided by 2 - it may make an additional attack as if wielding multiple melee weapons..."
This is the unclear bit. It says you can take an additional attack, not an additional attack action. Am I then limited to a single attack with the Multiple Arms? Or is it a typo? I'm building a custom monster for an upcoming game, and trying to figure out how many attacks it's going to get, as well as figuring out the appropriate penalties, so please let me know if I'm missing anything.
