Yea, "Long Sword" is too broad a term to be used as any single item. I guess the same goes for "Short Sword".
Short sword does have a nice ring to it but I think it depends on the type of game you are makingYes, I am well aware these are all valid. However, if you HAD to choose one way of writing it in your database/game, which would you prefer? I am also aware there are other "short" one-handed swords out there that go by different names, such as the Gladius, Xiphos, Jian, or Wakizashi/Kodachi, but that isn't my question.
Edit: I also don't mind this thread turning into a weapons discussion, but I'd like this question answered at the very least. (especially if said discussion touches on how some of those aforementioned "short" one-handed swords I mentioned would translate into RPG terms/stats)
