...the narrow defile was packed and jammed with horses and men, the warriors crushed breast to breast, stabbing with shortened blades, slashing murderously when there was an instant's room to swing a sword.
~ People of the Black Circle

In primitive cultures, short swords are scoffed at as little more than knives. However, in the Hyborian cultures such as Aquilonia or Nemedia, where shield walls and cavalry charges have become a reality of combat, short swords are prized for their ability to thrust and stab in spaces where no longsword could ever be wielded.

A typical footsoldier in the armies of Aquilonia will carry a spear and a short sword along with their shield - and when the initial charge of battle is over and the slow roll of the meat grinder begins, it is short swords that decide the day.

Because they are smaller and weigh less than other weapons, short swords are also faster to use and consume less stamina than their larger counterparts.
