This time we're trying blackguard. Unlike the paladin, this one is not human, but superhuman. Will the blackguard fare better than his noble counterpart?

So, dumb question: is there an actual turncount limit to these, or just the fear that someone else will likely run faster?

I've seen a few oblique references to a limit, or hitting a turncount wall, but can't find an actual number anywhere.

No limit. 1st will usually require a tight turncount, if you just want to put a win through take as long as you like.

@Dave-yes.
ImpHP is 1/2 speed recovery for HP. Regen is 2x.

Some interesting things from class.txt:
Two books: "Dark Rituals" and "Deadly Powers"
You don't get extra blows for having a weapon under 10 lbs
You can have up to 40 lbs of armor before losing SPs

Does the quality of your shield affect your shield bashes?

Yes, damage dice and weight affect quality.

Code:
	/* Bashing chance depends on melee skill, DEX, and a level bonus. */
	int bash_chance = p->state.skills[SKILL_TO_HIT_MELEE] / 8 +
		adj_dex_th[p->state.stat_ind[STAT_DEX]] / 2;
Code:
		/* Calculate attack quality, a mix of momentum and accuracy. */
		bash_quality = p->state.skills[SKILL_TO_HIT_MELEE] / 4 + p->wt / 8 +
			p->upkeep->total_weight / 80 + shield->weight / 2;
Not at all a bunch of esoteric equations. Its worth reading the whole thing in player-attack.c if you really want to know.
