The longsword is much more than a stretched out short sword. The extra length of a longsword makes it a serious martial weapon, able to inflict heavy damage at all times and hit for deadly effect pretty often. The combination of deadly damage combined with a fairly small, light, and handy size makes the longsword a serious favorite of all adventurers. There are literally dozens upon dozens of variations of the long, straight one-handed sword blade, and for our purposes, they're all longswords. The Longsword belongs to the "Blades, Heavy" weapon group.
