So I am trying to do something a little complicated and I just need some feedback before I start going ham trying to implement it.
I am fairly new to RPG Maker so I figure better safe than sorry.

I have a character who has the option to dual wield, sword and board, or two-hand his swords. I plan on using Ramza's dual wielding plugin with the monkeygrip addon to accomplish this by making every sword a two-handed weapon and allowing sword users to monkeygrip. I want him to have a skill that does two instances of damage.
-If he is dual wielding, the first strike will be calculated with his main weapon, and the second with his off weapon. The damage will be affected by the dual wielding penalty. Ex: Equip a fire sword and ice sword, the first strike will deal fire damage, the second will deal ice.
-If he is using a two-handed weapon or a sword and shield, both strikes will deal his main weapon damage and take no penalty. Ex: Equip a fire sword and opt to two-hand it, both strikes will deal fire damage

I am flexible with whether or not any penalties will apply because I can tweak the stats on the damage formula and items to find a happy middle ground but the real problem I am having in trying to map it out is how to have the skill "check" to see if there is an off-handed weapon. I can seem to do one or the other, but not both. Any advice would be welcome and thanks in advance. I am using Yanfly's battle engine core, action sequences, and HIME actor battle commands if any of those might be relevant.

Has anyone else ever thought about how the title of Gym Leader is usually hereditary? Usually the gym leaders child or sibling becomes the next gym leader. Not always, but usually. Pokémon nepotism
