Benefit: The wielder can attack as if armed with a single kama in each hand or extend the chain to make a single reach attack. By swinging the rope, the wielder can whip the kama about to disarm or trip opponents. Furthermore, if one of the weapons is dropped, the wielder can retrieve as a free action by pulling on the chain.
This is a monk weapon, so Sapo can use it to flurry. Or Sapo could make a single attack using it as a reach weapon. This means Sapo could trip an opponent 10' away.
If this is correct Sapo can trip many opponents without provoking attacks of opportunity. Sapo can trip opponents when they cannot hit back.
Oh then yes, but people have been doing that with the whip for awhile lol
Sapo is not proficient with the whip.
This third person crap is starting to annoy even me. I thought it might be a good "role-playing" thing, you know, the self-effacing monk who is too humble to use "I" or otherwise refer to himself in the first person.
I want to trip opponents when they can't hit back. This looks like a good way to do it.
The weapon description says nothing about changing from adjacent to reach. Dropping a weapon is normally a free action, I would conclude that changing from adjacent to reach is then a free action.
