The Fauchard is a pole-arm weapon with a curved blade fixed atop a 2m pole. The other types are all different variants of the long sword, tho I don't know what the exact difference between them is specifically.

AFAIK the the two handed sword is not really a specific sword but a distinction made for a sword requiring two hands to wield. A long sword classifies as anything a little more than one meter in length and can be wielded with one or both hands. A bastard sword IIRC is classified as a two hander reaching about 1.5 meters and has a wider blade.

A Fauchard is basically the equivalent of the Japanese Naginata and the Chinese YuanYue Dao.

Just throwing it in..


I want to know, what are some good conditions to get a job in Japan.

Im not talking about VISA or something, what im talking about is a college graduation, job training or something.

A friend of mine is, like me from Germany. In Germany, we have besides the college, the job training, where young people learn in job and special schools, to learn to do jobs, as for example technical product designer, mechanic, electrican or cook.


We would like to know, cause i cant find this very information on the internet, whats a good condition to get a job in Japan.

I can imagen, that, with the college graduations, the chances might be not bad, so what about the people with a gradiation of an job training? Do Japanese know this kind of graduation?

bastard swords are considered "hand and a half", meaning they can be used one or two handed. The other posts pretty well cover the rest.

The sword definitions obviously overlap since people tended to tweak with the attributes over time.

Well, since we are at it, i guess the broadsword is a sword that can hold in either one or two hands, but it have a wider blade than long or bastard sword?

....

Is broadsword a one-handed sword?

Actually, a bastard sword and the longsword are the same thing.

Yes it is. They were primarily used on horseback and were designed for cutting.
The famous two handed variation of the broad sword would be the claymore, used by the Scottish. The English were the ones who used the one-handed version.

The longsword on the other hand were used primarily but dismounted knights, due to its versatility.
However, they were soon designed with thinner cross-sections with longer tips for thrusting in order to penetrate plate mail.

Assuming this IRC, try talking to that mod[or another one you know] in a query to better explain what happened, having a copy of the log would help probably, though I am not sure this is the area you should be asking this .

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Hmm... this could be really difficult if they had planned to get you banned through this and you reacted harshly. The best option is, as Konakaga said, to explain what happened to a mod but don't fully blame the other poster. As long as you take some of the blame, apologise, and make sure you tread carefully in the future you'll probably have a chance of being reinstated.

Though once again, this might be the wrong area to ask.

Can I start a thread to generate girls' names that are warrior and cool sounding? Or can I ask it here?

Even easier, can somebody lend me a list of girls' name that fits the above category?

I think that forum is more for anime related suggestions. I'd say just do it in General Chat.

What about Tomoe Gozen, the persona of Chie from Persona 4?
Or maybe some Greek name, like Penthesilea.

That sounds like a pharmaceutical product Leo

You could go with pseudo-real/mythological characters, and just use "real" warrior women: Calamity Jane, Belle Starr, Pearl Hart, Margaret of Anjou, Catherine of Aragon, Andraste, Andromeda, Morrígan, Badb, Macha, Jeanne Hachette, Athena, Tomoe Gozen, etc.

I have a question. I am looking for the name of this typical style building.
I tried looking for urban houses but they are way too modern, I am looking for what I have linked below though it is from long ago. How the apartments are called in large cities that look like this (or what this side of town is called).
