Well technically that's what zweihander means. To be fair, the shield slot is labelled as "on arm" not "on hand."

I guess we can add the word "usually" in front of requiring.

Yeah, "requring" is not how you spell that word.

Does it occurringly require two hands to wield?

Sorry, I just had to comment on this. Did anyone know that "occurringly" is not a word?

Two handed weapons should probably be changed so that no shield can be equipped while wielding one.

And I've always wondered how you could explain in Angband that your character can use a two handed sword, heavy crossbow and shield at the same time...

Reality takes a backseat to gameplay here. Angband is not designed to allow a player to ignore the shield slot. It's possible to make two-handed weapons negate an AC bonus while keeping resistances. That might be viable.

Ask Nick, I think FA already has this... IIRC you wear your shield on the back and get reduced AC if you wield a two-handed weapon.
