In Game Description
Swordplay is the mainstay of knights and other warriors. Though its name suggests that it is purely for the use of swords, most abilities within this skill will improve your competency with any sharp edged weapon.
Swordplay is a purely offensive skill - If you are not out to kill, this isn't the skill for you. Of course, there are abilities which use a sword in manners not designed for killing, but these are a very minor part of the skill.
