When exactly does the 'off-hand' penalty come into play?
When a double sword guy is swinging his second sword?
Page 15 of the rules
Look at ARM wounds
The off-hand penalty comes into play when the dominant arm is unusable
Page 9 of the rules
"...the second sword of the Dimachaerus provides protection to the gladiator as if he were using a small shield."
So... If the Dimachaerus loses use of an arm he no longer gets the defensive bonus.
If a gladiator loses his dominant arm then he is now fighting with the off arm.
Can you pick up other peoples weapons to use?
Yes, Page 10 of the rules.
...also see Fighting Styles page 7 of the rules
Gladiators have Primary and Secondary fighting styles.
The secondary fighting style is used at a -1 to Savvy.
When someone is netted can they get up and move around with the penalties or are they stuck prone? If you leave them alone in a square can they do anything to get out of the net?

Are there rules for multi-player facing? It got a bit confusing trying to figure out who was facing who with six gladiators running around. Do you have to face a person you are Maneuvering with or can you keep them at 45 or 90 degrees of you?
Facing is 180 degrees front and rear
Facing in a zone is based on placement
If you swing a weapon with two hands and one arm is hurt how much damage does it do?
Body parts are fully functional until they are at zero points.
Once an arm becomes useless the gladiator must drop the weapon in hand or shield if carried by the damaged arm.
