Dungeons and Dragons or D&D is a tabletop roleplaying game based on a fantastical psuedo-European setting.

It is often a source of much confusion for young or new students to history as it applies non-historical or outdated terms to weapons and armour of the medieval period as well as providing out-right wrong information, e.g. the current version shows a picture of a curved bladed sword and labels it a rapier.

Any reference to a 'plus (numeral) sword' is a reference to this game.
