    (Similar) Lacehunt.

    From Melvos Hammerstars, Part Two. Wizards of the Coast website (via RealmsHelps.net). Accessed 5/29/21.

    Used in a sentence:
    "Take a trip upcountry to Blackturrets, you say? Do you not realize the only hunting that takes place there is within its grand walls? The prey are not beasts, mind, but pleasure lads and lasses delivered by cart from Selgaunt. I've no interest in lacerunning. Find me an owlbear to slay!"

    Longsark [long-SARK]

    Common

    From Elminster Must Die. Greenwood, Ed, 2011, p. 2.

    Used in a sentence:
    "If you've a longsark on your belt then a hand at your side will heighten suspicion, not quell it. Remember, every inn master in Shadowdale can count weapons on a man faster than you can count coins in your palm. Better to keep your hands out in front of you, palms to the ground, if you want a warm bed and bath."
