    The subject may have no more Hit Dice than you do, and it must be restrained in a coffinlike enclosure of stone for the duration of the casting. (Thus, you cannot be the subject of your own spell.)
    From Player's Handbook on page 170:
    To cast a spell, you must be able to speak (if the spell has a verbal component), gesture (if it has a somatic component), and manipulate the material components or focus (if any).
    A restrained subject cannot manipulate the required material component, nor can they touch themselves specifically as part of the casting. It's not just the somatic components that are an impediment to casting Mineralize Warrior on yourself. The highlighted restriction applies as stated.

    A 045 Yes.

    D&D 3.5 removed handedness except as an appearance factor, so your "off hand" attack doesn't have to be taken with a particular hand, or any hand.
