Is it just me, or does the dual wield skill make little sense in some respects? I know it's a bit trivial, but is there no distinction between two-handed and one-handed weapons? I know it's a matter of descriptions, but isn't it a bit absurd when you can dual-wield two thin, two-handed swords? :D

Just wondering if anyone else has crossed this path of thought.

Most people either avoid putting in descriptions like that, or they create a two-handed flag for weapons that affects the weapon similar to dual-wield, in that you can hold, have a shield, and use a two-hander at the same time...

I've also seen it done in a manner that to use a two-handed weapon you have to be able to dual-wield. It's all just a matter of how you want to do it. :)

So when do you start wondering about being left or right handed? And provision of an ambidextrous trait? Just think where else you could apply this.... well okay its rather boring..

Wielding your offhand weapon should not be as useful as wielding in your usual manner... Then again come of think of it, does it really matter? :) *makes note that he HAS had flags to indicate left or right handed, so that when the left or right hand/arm is cut off the appropriate object falls to the ground*
