On one hand, Angband kind of has a tradition of being unrealistic about this kind of thing with wielding a two-handed sword and still being able to hold a shield (and now shield bash). One the other hand, I had second thoughts about my restrictions in my most recent game when I could wield a lucerne hammer in the off-hand. So I'll figure out something slightly more realistic, probably I'll have must stricter weight restrictions on anything that isn't a sword. (I can imaging dual-wielding with a small axe or small war hammer in the off-hand). I like the idea of giving a bonus to heavy weapons when not wielding anything in the off-hand.

My old variant DaJAngband: (defunct and so old it's forked from Angband 3.1.0 -I think- but it's probably playable...)
