Sword & Shield

One of the oldest styles in Erd, the sword-and-shield is still taught throughout the lands. It is the favored style of the gentry and nobility of Polm, and it is an excellent combination for cavalry and mounted knights. The shield’s ease of use makes this one of the most defensive styles. Weapons: One-handed sword and medium sized shield around 18” – 2’ across.
