1)
Type depends on mount (light, medium, or heavy). If mounted on a monster: [HD <= 2] Light, [HD 2-3] Medium, [HD > 3] Heavy (based on MM 53, “Horse”). Should be re-rolled by the DM if the owner lacks a mount.
2)
Nagimaki if owner is mounted, naginata otherwise. May be re-rolled by the DM as desired if the locale is distant from the oriental portion of the campaign realm.
