Cost: -5 or -10 points
- Don't forget that NOT having gripping hands - such as Ham Fisted, No Fine Manipulators, and Foot Manipulators, comes with penalties and detriments in Technical Grappling that can offset the raw power of the legs.
April 2006 discussion Sense of Duty (Kittens) "What kind of disadvantage does this arm have? Numb? Missing fingers? Ham Fisted?"
December 2006 Akahige I just need to know why there's no related option for Lifting ST. It seems to me that the giant claw would also aid in grappling, wouldn't it? Perhaps I should just take the percentage modifier from One Attack Only, apply it to regular ST, and call it "One Hand Only".
- Xenophile "add the Temporary Disadvantage limitation to Extra Arms, or add the One Arm Only limitation to Ham-Fisted?"
- Bruno "I've never heard of the One Arm Only limitation"
2007's GURPS Martial Arts page 42:
- It’s possible to modify just one hand. This doesn’t reduce
the point cost of Claws or Unusual Background, but [[Bad Grip]] must have the -80% limitation “One hand only.” This reduces its value to -1 point and means that its -2 penalty applies to one-handed tasks with the modified hand. For two-handed tasks, the penalty is only -1.
