  Battlelore Primer Question Tue, 07 November 2006 16:01
The Battlelore Primer lists the 4 different weapon types as indicated by the symbol on the banners:

Common Bow (bow symbol)
Crossbow (crossbow symbol)
Short Sword (crossed swords symbol)
Long Sword (mounted warrior symbol)

The Long Sword symbol confuses me, since it shows a mounted warrior. Does this mean that this weapon type will be restricted to actual Mounted units, or will Foot units be capable of wielding the Long Sword?

If it is not restricted, you would have a Foot unit marked by a banner with a mounted warrior. I don't mind this, I just want to know if this implies a restriction or not.

Thanks, and keep the good information and insight flowing on the blog!

In the base game, the Long sword is attached exclusively to Mounted units - though nothing would prevent you, if you really wanted to in your own scenarios, to have some of these banners attached to foot units instead, aside from the visual oddity you mentionned.

In practice, however, this weapon was really designed for Mounted units and is probably best left there. There will be, down the road, additional foot weapons that are better suited to foot troops than trying to retrofit this one to them Very Happy.
