So...What is "The Wrong Sword," anyway?

Well, it's a hilarious thrill ride through the back alleys of Medieval Europe, with a thief, a cook, his wife, and her-

No, wait. That's not quite right. There is a thief. Except he's more of a juvenile delinquent, and he'd call himself a "goliard." There are no cooks, really, but there is a medieval food fight. The emphasis is actually a lot more on arrogant men-at-arms, overconfident princesses, and untrustworthy monks with disastrously anachronistic mechanical inclinations.

And there's a sword.

THE sword, actually. You know the one.

Perhaps it's best summed up by the famous Swiss navigator Istvan Dimiturglu:
"Crazy visions you got. Come with me to barber, we bleed you, you see right, everything good. I buy for you first leech." 

That wacky Dimiturglu. Always with the leeches.
