lol. I would love to do medieval stuff. Its my fave time period in history. As to the sword vs gun thing, I much prefer swords. I don't know why but I really love them and i really want to learn how to use one. But I'm a dolt and have no hand eye coordination so I would fail miserably.
Guns may work better, but swords you need to have skill, and they are so much more graceful, plus they can make a real mess.
I like gory things.
