I was recommended to post this here because I didn't realize at the time that I was side tracking from a previous question with a new one.
This is my question and reasoning behind it. Can I use a pair of weapons that are designated as two-handed, using one in each hand, for example, perhaps if I have the dual wielder feat and proficiency with two-handed weapons? Granted, I admittedly do not know much about 5e; I'm running off the ability back in Baldur's Gate that allowed my half-orc to dual-wield warhammers in melee battle. Is this scenario still applicable in 5e or not?
I'm curious because I thought of playing a half-goliath / half-dwarf dual wielding siege axes. I've also considered a half-dwarf / half-giant with the same weapons.
In other words, is there a character build that could make this weapon style work now, like what I did in past editions?
I figured the character race I picked would help mitigate the size and weight problems with these weapons though I'm not sure. But the biggest point was just wondering if this could work and what caveats to expect if a DM would allow it.
My specific question is: Can you wield a two-handed weapon in one hand? If so, can you dual-wield two two-handed weapons, each held in one hand?
