The Archipelago trial run
An old fashioned broadsword
Out of the piles of loot that Abillard gave you, Allen wound up with an old-fashioned broadsword. It is single-edged, triangular in cross-section, with a thrusting tip ground into the first 8" of the back. It is a little shorter than what you use, but is very well balanced. It is also in great shape for a sword as apparently as old as this one is.
