    Default Multiple attacks while grappling

    .
    The exchange on this thread has gotten me thinking about ways for providing high level combat characters with the means to deal with power-grapplers.

    I came up with the following feats for barbs and monks:


    Feral Grappler
    Prerequisites: Imp. Grapple, Mad Foam Rager, Greater Rage
    Benefits: When grappling, as long as you're not pinned, you can make multiple attacks vs. an opponent you're grappling.

    Flurry Grappler
    Prerequisites: Imp. Grapple, Close Quarters Fighting, Greater Flurry
    Benefits: When grappling, as long as you're not pinned, you can flurry vs. an opponent you're grappling.


    ATM, I can't think of a way to provide the Fighter with similar means.

    Starting a Grapple
    To start a grapple, you need to grab and hold your target. Starting a grapple requires a successful melee attack roll. If you get multiple attacks, you can attempt to start a grapple multiple times (at successively lower base attack bonuses).

    This should only work with creatures with 3 or more limbs since you have to GRAB AND HOLD your target. Kinda hard to grab and hold with only one limb. This is just a matter of verisimilitude. Mostly why grapple is such a pain to deal with.

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    Not necessarily.
    Bear Fang feat from Complete Warrior (p.112) allows you to make a grapple attempt every time both weapons hit. If that strategy works, more options can be devised.
