Can a paladin learn more spells?

Anyway, I've now got a mana pool but no spells that actually use it. Can I acquire spells I can cast in game? Will I automatically learn more spells when I port this character over to QFG 4? Or will that only happen if I put some more points into the magic skill?

It's a pity that. The combat in QFG 4 isn't as good as earlier games so some offensive spells would have been handy.

Yeah, the lumped the Paladin-only skills into the Spells category even though they use Stamina. So you won't import any spells but you can learn new ones in-game. I don't know if they combined it for ease of programming or what - It does make it hard when you get the "Aura" spell from Madga in Shadows of Darkness and instead you want the Undead Amulet which is always equipped. Now you have to practice the Aura spell and make it stronger and remember to cast it before wraith battles.

Personally I think it would've made more sense to make paladin abilities part of the inventory instead of the spells menu, from a programming/gameplay point of view.
From a presentation/consistency sort of perspective, it does actually belong in the magic menu.
What should've happened is the magic menu should have become available based on either magic OR Paladin points. So if you have any Paladin points, you have access to your magic menu.
As for QFG4, instead of getting rid of the Paladin points mechanic, keep it as an artifact, like Communication.
