 An early modern sword seeing use in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Called 'broad' to contrast with the slimmer rapiers. 


Broadswords might be found in mansions, pawn shops, and some upscale houses. They are superior to the more modern machete in all ways except speed. You can upgrade to the Firebrand with the proper skills and equipment, but it is slower, bulkier and does less damage when not activated. It can be used with the Fencing martial art making it into an excellent and highly effective weapon.
