Yes, my entire combat system runs on two different initiative tracks.
Wielded weapons run on one, held weapons on another.  Held is only
called if you can hit with the second arm, and can also be a normal
"hit".  It's cool...  and with the stats all figured in it's really
awesome.  I have stuff like protection slowing the opponent down and
being some classes like warriors and paladins speeding yourself up.
The result?  It almost looks random.
