To be fair, Sil is trying to simulate a world where military technology hits roughly the level of 11th century Europe from about the moment anyone gets it into their head to make a weapon, and then stays put for the next 10,000+ years. The late medieval shift away from swords on the battlefield probably only happens way into the Fourth Age!
