Not sure how feel[edit]

Four arms on an LA 0, dangerous.

I see you tried to mitigate it by requiring two feats to make it effective. Even so, I'm just imagining the quad-greatsword wielding abuse.

Something needs to be done, so I draw attention to it. What to do about that... Scale it? -- Eiji-kun (talk) 13:07, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

After two years! Finally a comment! I was beginning to think no one likes squidies around here.
Anyways, the whole point of this as as an experimental test to see if making a four-armed LA 0 race was possible. Scaling isn't the solution, since it's still 4 attacks granted by race (sort of, since it does require an additional feat to unlock).
Looking back at it, yeah, something does need to be done, I agree. Possible options include: Using smaller weapons (tones down damage very slightly, most notably at low levels when dealing primarily with base weapon damages; flavor justified by boneless limbs), requiring burning an extra feat (two-weapon fighting first, then one for 3 usable limbs, then multi-weapon fighting)... I'm not sure what else and I'm not really happy with any of those solutions. I'll think it over the next couple days and see what I come up with (unless anyone else has some input they care to provide). --Ganteka Future (talk) 01:32, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
