    How would you handle a double bladed sword?

    I have an NPC with a double bladed sword (I am converting from D&D to RM). Any suggestions on how the attacks would work? What attack table should I use? Assuming the person gets two attacks per round, but should they be able to parry full with one attack? Both attacks? Thanks.

    Arms Law Page 19, but more info mentioned below:
    ”A combatant may use a one-handed weapon in each of their hands. They are assumed to be right-handed (the same rules apply in reverse for left-handed combatants).

    When a combatant develops skill with (i.e. trains with) a weapon, they must develop the skill with their right hand and skill with the left hand separately (see ChL Section 7.0).”

    No worries. That’s what us GMs are for…player anxiety and fear!

    As a GM, I always limited the characters proficiency ranks in a off-hand weapon to whatever they have in it as a primary weapon. So if you have 10 ranks in Dagger as a main-hand weapon, you can have a maximum of 10 ranks in Dagger as an off-hand weapon. Always made sense to me.
