Swords (CoS spoilers)
« on: April 19, 2005, 10:01:30 AM »

One thing i've noted in the books (especially the new conclave series) is that REF can be a little inconsistent when he describes a sword that a charachter uses.

For example the sword that Kaspar takes off the Dasati in ER gets no description and i merely assume it's a longsword.

In CoS Book 1 we get no description of the sword that Talon uses although i assume it was a Rapier.

Other charachters such as the Izmali that Tal fights in the Masters Court are accompanied by a description of their weapon (in the case a Katana).

I've searched the FAQ but can find no answers. Can someone please tell me if im correct that Tal uses a Rapier and Kaspar a long sword etc ?

I'm guessing that Tal uses a Rapier because it's probably the popular choice while in the Masters Court ever since Prince Arutha used it.

I'm positive the sword that Tal uses
Spoiler: show
in the Masters Court is a rapier, I mean it mentions it numerous times. I remember it saying that you can use any sword in the competition but it'd be really hard with a long sword compared to a rapier.

I've also noticed that in Daughter of the Empire when they are in the choja hives trying to convince the Queen to come to their house. Some of the warriors and Keyoke get alittle stressed and nearly draw their swords and Arakasi says "Draw steel in this room and all we be for naught"

Thats good advice and all, but hey Kelewan doesn't have steel. Yeah they have the family swords but not for your everyday soldier. So there was a minor mistake there.

That was interesting, I didnĀ“t notice it when reading the book, are you sure about it? In that case it is indeed a blooper  :elf_smile:

I'm positive it does say that as I just read the Empire series.

Tal could use any sword he wanted really, you have to admit, he is quite good. But i do think his weapon of choice in the masters court is the rapier.
