  • Science Fiction Companion - Kalian's four arms

    Can ambidextrous kalians use their four arms to shoot 4 pistols on the same round as below?

    1st arm: pistol
    2nd arm: pistol (two fisted)
    3rd arm: pistol (additional action)
    4th arm: pistol (-2 multiaction penalty)

    Total multi action penalty = -2 to all actions.

    Is that correct?

    Also, if I shoot 2 pistols and just hold 2 rapiers on my other hands do I keep the +2 parry bonus on the same round?

    (added link to related question about lyr-srial)
    With the Lyn-Srial's Four Arms or a cybernetic improvement that provides Extra Arms you are granted an additional non-movement action each round. Do these

    Nope, sorry. Per the race description <italics added>, "Due to their four arms, kalians get one extra nonmovement action."

    It's one extra action not one per additional arm. The additional arm just means one of the actions could require two hands, but it doesn't allow for another one-handed action.

    So the Kalian above could fire a pistol in two hands and a rifle with the other two but not four separate pistols.

    The Parry bonus from a rapier still applies, but not both. Parry bonuses from weapons don't stack (though penalties do).

    Hope that helps.
