Ah, The Redemption of Althalus! †Now that was a good book!

Also, what type of sword-fighting (longsword w/(w/o) shield, etc...)?  Speaking of which, there is a SCA group about 30 mins away from gladbrook.  Very Happy

A fellow Eddings fan! Huzzah!

I like two-sword. I'm too light to effectively use a shield. I'd like to get into rapier, though.

Delightful.  That's also the style I tend towards, though I personally prefer two one-edged weapons such as wakizashis (you can hold them upside-down and brace them along the forearm).

I always liked a rapier.

Rapiers, while good, are almost useless against two shortswords, simply because the two-sword can com in closer than you can defend.  If you're good enough with a rapier though, I'd imagine you could keep the other at a long enough distance to bleed him to death.  Very Happy  Sorry.  I'm not really a fan of rapiers.

Yeah, but I try to stay a bit more European, myself. And I have LONG reach, so I try to take advantage of that. My rapier comes up to my bellybutton or higher when sheathed (tiny bit bladeheavy though..). I need to get a training rapier, though, cuz the one I've got is meant to kill so it doesn't bend enough. Diamond steel is what I've had recommended to me. Smile

My preference over a sword, as pathetic as it may be, is the javelin. I've made and thrown so many that i am actually effective with them. and rocket-pikes are just fun. ( stick hobby rocket engines on javelin).

Polearms are a really, really effective counter to swords. Ever fought a glaive in combat? Or a spear? If your javelin is long enough to outdistance a sword in melee, you're set unless the person has trained against polearms.
