Our normal 4e encounters group is running a 13th Age playtest session, and I'm creating a Level 1 fighter character based on Adam Jensen from Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I'm skimming the rules and the classes and, beyond the one ranger class feat, I can't find anything in the playtest notes about penalties or bonuses from dual wielding weapons. Can someone point me in the right direction or quote them for me?
From the Escalation V6 rules, page 197, under Two Weapon Fighting.
The Fighter has the Power "Two Weapon Pressure" as well. However, the Ranger is to go-to guy for dual wielding.
The advantage for two weapon fighting as a Fighter is that you have a 1 in 20 chance of re-rolling an attack, plus on a miss, you get a +2 attack against the same target next round (if you pick Two Weapon Pressure). The downside is you lose AC from not having a shield. (Two Weapon Pressure is a level 1 Power, and it triggers on any miss, so maybe it's good enough to compensate for a lack of shield)
