Are we allowed to equip a weapon in our mainhand and offhand and bring in alternate weapons?

only certain casses (ranger and monk) can equip a weapon in their offhand. You can bring an alternate weapon.

I know you can have say a dagger and a bow, but can you bring in weapons that you didn't put on the mat at the beginning and swap them out mid-dungeon?

So, I can bring 20+ weapons into every game, and use a different on for each room?
Doesn't that screw up the pay card?

yes you can but most don’t generally you use your best weapon for melee and best for ranged but occasionally you do change them for something else.

Yes, as long as your character can wield each of the weapons.

You should notify the DM if you use a weapon with a different to-hit modifier than the ones on the party card. This is often overlooked/forgotten.

You can but most won’t. In general you need your best melee and best range weapon. Having a dagger, and a short sword and 2 long swords and a scimitar and a great axe in general is not going to help you in the dungeon. If you change to a weapon that changes your to hit or damage bonus you are supposed to tell the dm the difference.

You can bring in 20+ weapons. You can use a different one in each room, but in general you will have a 'best' weapon in terms of damage/to hit, and that's the one you're most likely to use, and the one you put down to have recorded at the beginning of the adventure. Your 'best' range weapon stats are also recorded at that time. It is very rare that a certain 'type' of weapon (slashing/piercing/etc) is best for a certain situation in TD, so changing weapons mid-dungeon doesn't have much point.

Technically your stats should be adjusted based on your weapon, but in practice that is difficult for many DMs to do on the fly due to time/memory constraints. Grind is a bit different, however, and I would expect Eric/Kirk/Raven to adjust your stats accordingly.

You officially equip one melee and one ranged weapon and those stats are on the party card. Unlike everything else you equip, you are allowed to change weapons in the dungeon. It takes your one free action in a round to switch between melee and ranged or swap out weapons.

If your new weapon has different stats then technically you should let the DM know. For example if I switch from my +5 Viper Strike Fang to a +3 Rod of Niltongue I should let the DM know I'm - 2 on my to hit. The damage is built into the weapon dial so no adjustment there.

But switching between different types of the same weapon pretty much only comes up in True Grind.

Welcome to the Forums.
The coach records your weapon stats on the player card. It makes the most sense to have your best weapon recorded.
So then, why would you swap out weapons? I don’t see any advantage.

There are limited times where it maybe.
