Hello
I`am a dyed in the wool D&D geek.I`ve been playing it sense the 80`s.Either PnP or computer. I`am not sure if gameing got me interested in swords or viceversa.Kindof Chicken and egg.But I tend to think of my swords in D&D terms.Anybody else do the same?So here`s my Sovereign, with carved bone inserts.

"Lullaby", +2 longsword , 1d6 magical damage, it puts your target to sleep on a sucsessfull attack.
Yeah....I`am a geek:-)

Thanks for looking

Ha ha, nice post! Maybe, just maybe a bit too geeky? But it's a very nicely done insert!

Shouldn't it be broadsword not longsword?

Hello
Swords, over 2ft long, are considered longsword, in the D&D universe. I never said, thier rules, where all that accurate:-)

Woohoo! Geek solidarity! Stay l33t, brother.

As it happens, Lullaby is the name I gave my Brescia Spadona. My Albions all have musical names, though it only became a deliberate theme recently. My Svante is Fugue, my goth Munich is Nocturne, and so on. I think my soon-to-be-born Dane is going to be Dirge.

And yes, I usually see them in RPG terms. In fact, the longer I've lived the more I've come to realize that life really is like D&D/videogames. Get items, raise levels, enhance your character stats, find trustworthy allies to share the adventure, battle evil. All good stuff. Big Grin

Pax,
Sam Barris

hehe, t`was the same for me. due to computer or PnP-roleplay-games, i always thought (until i landed here) a longsword is a long single handed sword in contrast to a shortsword (one usually gets a shortsword with lvl 1 :-) ), and a hand-and-half sword is termed bastardsword. fantasy stuff seems to go concordant in this deviant terminology.

That shortsword/longsword theory is good for ancient imes when typical greek or roman sword was quite short so celtic sword which was longer than these was termed "longsword". Wink
