Tail Training (4e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
Tail Training [Racial]
Ordinary gritaurs can hold things with their dexterous tails, but no more than that. You have trained yourself to the point where you can not only hold a slippery object like a sword, but even wield it effectively in combat.
Prerequisite: Gritaur, Dex 13
Benefit: You can use your tail like a third hand. Unless you have the Two-Blade Ranger two weapon ability you are still limited to normal off-hand weapons. There are no benefits to wielding three melee weapons, but it allows you to, for example, use two one-handed weapons and a shield, a two-handed weapon along with a one-handed weapon, or to have a melee weapon ready while firing a ranged weapon.
If you do not have a weapon your tail still counts as an off-hand weapon but only makes a basic unarmed attack (1D4 base damage).You can also use your tail for other types of manipulation. But due to the lack of fingers it suffers a -2 penalty to all rolls in this case.
Normal: A gritaur without Tail Training can only use its tail for simple tasks like holding a bag or, at best, open a door. Basically nothing that requires a roll.
