[Runequest] Shameful question.

Obviously both have advantages and disadvantages, but one thing is clear:
military technologies are perhaps the most Darwinistically-impacted
technology in human society.  There's LOTS of war, and an immediate and
pressing incentive for any soldier to adopt anything that's going to give
him an immediate advantage.

I'd guess that it's a case of parallel evolution and would respect that
either system (Western - sword+shield, Eastern - sword only), ultimately did
a good enough job that the opponents would be evenly matched, and it would
come down to individual skill.
