hi there

I play the conventional possessed warband. My mutant has an extra arm. Is it possible to wield a double-handed weapon (or halberd etc.) and wield a shield with the third arm in CC?

It seems rules as written that this would be allowed.

Some confusion may be infused with the Q&A from TC#13, pp. 30-31.

thanks a lot von Kurst.

We play with the handweapon/shield-bonus houserule which I would not allow here as it is not a handweapon. But the normal +1 from the shield seems to be sensible to allow.

For what it is worth in my group we *do* allow the combination *and* allow the bonus +1 (we worded the house-rule as "+1 in melee"). Although I have not used it myself I have played against it and it has not made things less fun.
