Summary 0007929: A character can initially start game wearing shield and wielding 2-handed weapon
Description A character can initially start game wearing shield and wielding 2-handed weapon, in violation of the rule that wearing a shield makes 2-handed weapons unwieldable and wielding a 2-handed weapon makes a shield unwearable.

I entered game as a Djinni Wanderer with a wielded quarterstaff and worn buckler; this should not be possible since a quarterstaff is a 2-handed weapon.

I noticed this when I unwielded the quarterstaff and (unsuccessfully) tried to re-wield.

Prevent wanderers from wielding 2h + shield.

Looks like can_wear_armour doesn't actually check about 2H weapons, so only half of pubby's fix works: if you get the shield first the quarterstaff won't be wielded, but if you get the quarterstaff first the shield will still be created pre-equipped.

The case where the shield is given second should be fixed.

Had this happen again, shortbow+buckler on a mummy wanderer. [^]

Were you actually equipping both at the game start? IMO it's OK if you have to choose between using the bow and the shield, but if they were both equipped that's obviously a bug.

Pretty sure both were equipped from the start. By the time I had realized what happened I had already unwielded and was unable to re-equip, leading to an early demise.
