I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment How do I get someone to stop being a butt for the benefit of my other players?
-1 I find that there are too many "internet tough guy" answers like this on the site that just jump to booting someone without appreciation of other alternatives. Is it an alternative? Sure. Should it be the first resort? No.

No, it does not. That may or may not be fine with your GM, but you have the "right" to jack and crap and Jack just got killed by orcs.

comment How does a Ghostly Arm (graft) interact with Two-Weapon Fighting?
Are you using the graft in some way to give you arms in addition to your normal 2 (not the default use, grafts replace limbs)?

comment Making sure a character doesn't outshine others?
Probably a duplicate but there's so little information it's hard to tell. Speaking as a GM? rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/50/… is a dupe (and locked, for being similarly defined). As a player? rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/22173/… is a dupe.

comment How does a Ghostly Arm (graft) interact with Two-Weapon Fighting?
Your title says "sneak attack." The body says a graft but then you talk about still attacking with two weapons. Can you clean this up and get to the heart of what you're doing and asking? "One arm with a weapon, one graft" - are you asking if this graft can wield a weapon so you can 2wf, or if you can 2wf with a weapon and this arm, or if you can attack with this arm in addition to a normal (one-handed?) attack routine, or something about sneak attacks you don't really get to mentioning?
