Author's Notes: Thanks to aged_crone for answering my question about leather armor terminology.

Though I've taken pains to make the sword battle scene as accurate as possible, I'm far from an expert and a certain amount of creative license must be taken in non-historical settings. Longsword stances are the English translations of stances used in German schools.

Enjoy!
