This is specifically for Pathfinder 1e.
So, I haven't been able to find the exact answer I'm looking for. I'm a Druid with two ranks in Brawler (technically, it's a home brew Brawler called Beastial Scrapper, but for all practical purposes, I'll call it Brawler here).
I've gone down the grapple rabbit hole. I've got Improved Grapple, as well as Greater Grapple. Because of my dip into Brawler, I can use Martial Flexibility, as well as Flurry of Blows.
My question is this, because I have Greater Grapple, and I get to make 2 grapple checks each round, do I get to do a Full Attack Action if I make both of them? Technically, according to the PFSRD, a "Grappled" character can make a FAA, and the PFSRD also doesn't differentiate between Grappled and Grappler, they are both the same condition.
Here's where it gets interesting. Under normal grappling, if you make your check, you can move, attack, or pin. If you have Greater Grapple, you can make two checks to move, attack, or pin. Technically, you could move twice, which in normal rules would be a double move, or pin, and then tie up, or attack twice, which doesn't really exist in normal rules, as you'd just being using your move and standard action to make a FAA. It really feels like making two grapple checks should add up to a FAA.
Is there anything out there that explicitly states that I can't make two grapple checks to use a FAA? And if so, and it's not allowed, would Rapid Grapple allow for it, since that allows you to make a Swift Action to make a grapple check, therefore still giving you a move and standard action (which together make up a FAA)?
Additionally, I have heard that a Monk can make a Flurry of Blows when Grappled as long as they have 1 hand, and since a Brawler is based on a Monk and has a similar Flurry of Blows, would that mean that my character could do the same?
Lastly, when in Wild Shape, would I be able to make attacks with my natural weapons? I become a Tiger, and I have Rake, so I technically get to make my claw attacks each round. But I'm also looking into becoming a Dragon, and Form of the Exotic Dragon II gives me 6 attacks (Bite, 2 Claws, 2 Wings, Tail). Would I really only be able to attack with two of them in a round if I make both checks? I'm grappling with my claws, probably, what about my wings and tail? Are those appendages just hanging out and doing nothing?
I guess I'm just looking for some sort of general consensus from the community. My GM is pretty fair, but the Grapple rules only account for so much, and there's a lot of ambiguity here. And for the record, I'm loving grapple. I've got a 29 CMB (I'm level 16) for grapple, and a Ring of Freedom of Movement, as well as Powerful Shape. Once I get Form of the Exotic Dragon III I'll be able to grapple a T-Rex, and as far as for RPing goes, it just looks really cool, and my GM is all about good RP.
