A longsword was a type of sword used by the Nagai species, whose warriors preferred to employ bladed weapons in combat situations. In Nagai society, fighting exercises were a daily ritual, and longswords—along with Swiftcut foils and Tehk'la blades—were used in some of these exercises. Participants fought both as a form of meditation and in attempts to claim victory and earn social status among their fellow Nagai.
Behind the scenesEdit
Longswords were first mentioned in The University of Sanbra Guide to Intelligent Life: The Marvel Series, an article written by Rich Handley and Joe Bongiorno that was included in the first issue of the Star Wars Gamer magazine. The issue was published in September 2000.
