    I'm coming back to this game after having played is probably 25 years ago, lol. Anyway, I had 2 quick questions that I was hoping someone could answer for me....

    1. I know that the Paladin of Helm can MC only to Fighter....so, would it be possible to do the following Paladin of Helm (1), Monk (1), Fighter (x) .....assuming that I started with Paladin, then added Fighter, then added the Monk level later?
    2. What 2H weapons are available besides 2H axe, 2H sword, and halberd?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. If you don't want to advance further as paladin, then you can take any branch and call it a day.
    2. Staves and spears.

    Also bastard swords if you have a mod. According to P&P rules they can go either way, and the description reflects that, but the unmodded game only treats them as 1 handed weapons.
    In theory if you equip a bastard sword without anything in the off-hand it should be treated as a 2-handed weapon, but the game is bugged not to implement that (or at least they never implemented it). There's a mod that is part of the G3 fixpack (or was it the tweaks pack) that can make it possible to switch them between 1 and 2 handed.
