The Techniques of Cimmerian Swordsmanship

Posted: July 6, 2012 in Cimmerian swordplay

This is a compendium I wrote a few years ago. Let it be no surprise that I am a fan of Robert E. Howard’s tales of Conan the barbarian.

At some point, I noticed a consistency in the way that REH described his Cimmerian warrior in battle. Here I comment on apparent techniques of this fantasy character.

This is going to inspire and advise the system of sword combat that I plan to share here in the near future.
