Well let's see: that's not how to spell 'accommodate', there are other names for the longsword, like the 'hand and a half', the 'bastard sword' etc.. A 'mace and chain' is not the same as a flail which has a long handle, the 2-handed sword is also a montante, claymore, zweihander, etc., etc. and these should be allowed. It goes on

For the single-edged two-handed german sword, I believe that should be "kriegsmesser", you've got a little typo there.

and isn't the goedendag dutch?
