No-handed weapons?

A Heliopteryx warrior cannot use hand-held weapons, but is there any weapon which require no hand?
For example, can you fire a blowgun(pre-loaded) while holding it with your jaws only?
Or, will there be something like Ninja weapon fukumibari(in-mouth needle, or small blowgun hidden in mouth for surprise attack - often aimed at enemy's eye) ?

*I considered about something like foot-mounted spurs, but found that under the Living Land Tech Axiom such weapons will rarely go better than natural edeinos claws and thus better held for non-edeinos jakatt Chosen Heliopteryx...

GM's call.

Of course the famous Bohemian Earspoon, so named because - I'm certain - you wield it using your ear, which was a very socially unconventional way to hold a large polearm at the time. Hence, "Bohemian," which is clearly the part of the name that causes confusion.

Since I have no GM around and am working on generic Archetype the point is moot, but thanks anyway.

It brought another important question I have forgotten; how many hands does a deployed cyberweapon occupy?
a)Zero. The implant holds that weapon firmly enough, and all your hands are free to do other things.
b)(Normal required hands)-1. The mount can hold the weapon as a hand does, but a 2H weapon need another supporting hand.
c)One. A cyberweapon is deployed from a hand and occupies that hand.
d)As normal required hands. The weapon in well stored but still require hands for proper use.
(And I'm also curious about required hands for direct weapon implant like Zan Slashers)

Great. Now do you know a shop in the Living Land for a starting character to buy one?

One more interesting question... Where's the external ear of Edeinos for wielding said earspoon? :lol:

Maybe treated like Spiked Plates?
(I just thought maybe there can be a Redthorn Armor, with benefit of thorny spikes but painfully fatiguing and is just too painful for non-Jakatts)

You don't need a shop, just a magician willing to cast it on the heliopteryx. And since we're already in the realm of massive contradiction, let's go ahead and make it a permanent spell... :twisted:
