Trivia

  • The term "Bastard sword" is academically acknowledged as referring either to "a sword of unknown origin" or "an abnormally long sword" as in the original french "epee batard." (c. 15th century) In this context it referred to a sword that might perhaps be used either in one or both hands, centuries later (c. 18th-19th century) this type of sword would be called "a hand-and-a-half sword" or simply a "longsword." Contemporaneously, the sword depicted in game would likely by called "a longsword" or "an arming sword" due to its hilt being about the size to accomidate a single hand, and its size relative to the arrisen being similarly accomidating. (source: Oakeshott, Ewart (1980). European Weapons and Armour: From the Renaissance to the Industrial Revolution.)
  • This is the sword that was used by the Duke to knight the Arisen.
  • The sword has a "flame" pattern along the blade - this is likely to be a result of regular pattern welding, a profession sword making technique.
