- "Let me out of here, Airk. Give me a sword. I'll win this war for you."
- —Madmartigan, trying to convince Airk Thaughbaer to free him, in Willow
A sword was any weapon with a long, sharp metal blade and a handle, used for thrusting or striking. The chivalric order of Galladoorn used swords. Occasionally, swords were made of material other than metal. The Dragon Sword, crafted by the blackmsith of Dew, was made from the scales of a dragon called Matanda. During the investiture of a knight, the master of the ceremony would dub the candidate by tapping him on his shoulder with the flat of a sword's blade.
