** With the usual exception of the bastard sword, which is a misnomer historians applied to hand-and-a-half longswords. Correctly, all western swords with a two-handed hilt are longswords, with the one-handed base form being considered an arming sword or a short sword.

* ImplausibleFencingPowers:
** Because spears wielded one handed can only thrust, a player armed with a short sword can parry entire groups of spearman's attack by holding block and keeping their back to a wall (or constantly moving back).
** The Siege maps in Multiplayer take this to extremes with Rhodock Warhammers/Swadian Greatswords instantly killing attackers as they swarm up ladders, or rushing through a fallen sally port only for 2-3 defenders waiting patiently to slay them.

Added DiffLines:

** Cavalry doesn't understand how to use the jousting lance properly, which is particularly noticeable in tournaments, where you can typically find a trio of knights stuck in a corner on their horse, poking at each other for 0 damage with the lance.

** Take out a mounted enemy while he's charging full steam. Watch the rider end up rolled over by his mount's corpse.

* KarlMarxHatesYourGuts: Averted. The game has [[http://mountandblade.wikia.com/wiki/Trade a complex system of price calculations]], which includes supply and demand (selling several times the same supplies to the same merchant results in progressively reduced gains, goods suffering from a shortage can be sold more expansively), as well as taking in account whether a good is needed or not by the local workshops. It basically means that it is indeed possible to gain money by buying supplies in a city to sell them elsewhere; there's actually a feature in the market's menu allowing to estimate which goods can be more profitable to bought here.

*** Gets nastier if it happens to be bandits who captured you in an isolated area, thats a long walk back with likely even more of the bastards spawning to rob you of your dignity. And then we get Steppe Bandits in and near the Khanate who make the above a walk in the park.
