In these pages I will try and share my knowledge of swordplay. Swords come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, but the principles of attack and defence are the same.
Apart from being interesting, I hope these pages will add to peoples' vocab for role-play. Why say "...he swiped with this sword..." when you can say "...having parried the orc's thrust, he made his disengaged riposte to his attacker's carte"?
"Salle" is the generic name for a room or hall used for teaching fencing. Think of it as the classroom. A modern-day salle could be anything from a gymnasium with monkey-bars, to an oak-panneled lounge with candles and a side-board.
