Dungeons and Dragons or D&D is a tabletop roleplaying game based on a fantasy based 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It is often a source of much confusion for young or new students to history as it applies non-historical or outdated terms to equivalent weapons and armour of the medieval period as well as providing out-right wrong information. eg the current version shows a picture of a curve bladed sword and labels it a rapier.

Some "DNDisms" that may be commonly heard are:

  • Longsword for arming sword
  • Platemail for plate harness
  • Chainmail for mail

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