    Default Am I Reading This Right? #3.5#

    Thri-Kreen has 4 arms
    Girallon's Blessing gives another pair
    Arms of the Girallon soulmeld adds yet another pair
    Multiweapon Fighting
    Monk's Flurry of Blows

    Does this mean 8 full FoBs?

    You could essentially get that many arms, however Flurry of Blows (as I read it) when Multi-weapon fighting Flurries with only the Main Hand.

    Your Main Hand advances with iterative attacks through BAB, but you have to take feats to get multiple attacks with off-hands, so only the Main Hand is affected by the Flurry.

    Flurry of Blows gives you one extra attack no matter how many arms you have. You'd need Perfect Multiweapon Fighting for what you want, and that's an epic feat.

    Wouldn't Flurry of Blows just increase the number of attacks by 1 making it 9?

    You mean Unarmed Swordsage FoB. And I'm not that familiar with Incarnum, but to the rest, yeah, that would work.
    Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get me.

    There are feats for that...

    Also, don't forget about Flexible Arm Fiendish Grafts from the Fiend Folio.

    Unarmed Swordsage does not, in fact, get Flurry of Blows.

    Unarmed Swordsage does not, in fact, get specific. The description of it in ToB is a single sentence that suggests, pretty vaguely, a change to make to the class. So ask your DM what a US gets.

    Actually, Swordsages of all types get FoB. It's just been renamed Flashing Sun.

    Flashing Sun is a specific maneuver that gives the Swordsage an extra attack in exchange for a -2 penalty on attacks... pretty much exactly like Flurry of Blows.

    Tiger Claw is a school, with many maneuvers. Several of them are similar, though they're really more like TWF than FoB.

    Anyway, for real fun, find that spell that lets you fuse arms to multiply your Str score.

    It's called "Fuse Arms" and is in Spell Compendium. Only static increase, no multiplication though.

    Giralon's blessing is an awesome spell. I love to use it, and I probably will when my new cleric attains the level required. I cannot wait to quadri-wield my guisarme.
