A question regarding claws: They seem to fall in between an in game item, and not an in game item. IIRC, smithing can give them a + to damage; they can be vorpal coated; but they can't be enchanted, silvered, shattered or fumbled, and don't count as a pre-requisite for Florentine & Two Weapon.

A question I haven't seen on the forums yet is can you hold a claw and another in-game item in the same hand?
Such as, an alchemy packet and a claw, and still parry with the claw?
Can you hold the claw in the same hand as a shield and still block with the shield (for instance, when grabbing a throwing knife with your "claw" hand)?
Can you hold a claw in one hand and perform a One Handed Block with a 2 handed weapon with the other?

It's an interesting question. I would say a claw is simply an IG weapon with the exceptions listed otherwise in the rules that you've pretty much laid out.

Ashe: that's what I would think. But I've seen NERO rulings go 180 degrees from what I would have decided...I'm holding out for an official ruling on this.

Is there anyone who can give me an official answer to these questions? It's been a week, I know you must see this forum once in a while.

Hi Dale
I'm sorry, if you give me until Thursday, I'll make sure I get the right answer.
Sound good?

Claws: are they a weapon or not? Inquiring minds want to know...

My opinion is that Claws are Natural Weapons. I would rule that a Bite (two-handed weapon) is also Body Weaponry. Neither of these should be allowed to be enchanted with Formal Magic but Claws should be able to have spell enchantments like flame blade and silver aura. Again, my opinion only.
