In Vampire: The Masquerade, one of my NPCs was a dual-sword-wielding Assamite with the ambidextrous merit.
In the rules, I did not find specifics about dual-wielding in melee other than a short mention in the "multiple opponents" combat feat which says it is treated as multiple actions and you have to separate your dice pools.
My problem is:
Adam has a one handed sword and Celerity 1. He declared 2 actions (with use of celerity), both of them are attacks. During the entire round, Adam attacked twice the same opponent with his sword.
Betty has two one handed swords and Celerity 1. She declared 2 actions (with use of celerity), both of them are attacks. She cannot use the combat feat "multiple opponents" because she is against only 1 opponent and "multiple opponents" states it's treated as multiple actions with dice pool separation, and use of celerity does not allow further action/dice pool separations. During the entire round, Betty attacked twice the same opponent with either one of her swords (or once with each).
(I might have some terms wrong as I don't have the rule book with me right now, but this contains the gist of my problem)
Where am I wrong here? What have I missed? Can you break down your actions to attack twice per attack despite using celerity, just because you have two weapons? And doing so you would have to separate your dice pool anyway, so it's not that big of an advantage? Is it advantageous only in terms of "my weapons have poison 'charges' so 2 is better than 1"?
