Longswords-concept

Concept art

Longswords are one-handed melee weapons. They do high amounts of damage, but typically are lower in the armor penetration and critical strike values. Longswords can be considered to be the "jack-of-all-trade" for one-handed melee weapons; while their stats for critical and armor penetration are not the best, they are not the worst.
