Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' treats hook hands as both prosthetics and melee weapons (they don't do much damage, though). Of note is the magical item called "Wizard Hook" from the pirate-themed adventure path ''Skull & Shackles'': not only does it allow a one-handed wizard to perform spell-casting gestures without penalty, but it also gives them bonuses to touch attacks for spells that require them.
