Forgotten Dreams Design-studio (FDDs) was a German manufacturer of LARP weapons, shields and set-pieces. The company was founded in 2001 and closed at the end of 2019. Their weapons have been soft and light, well suited for junior players. The weapon core has often been on the thin side, so longer weapons would have increased flexibility, to the point of making it hard to utilize - see our review of their quarterstaff.
Their swords and shields have been loved by many players througout the years, and they've had long durability. If you can find a used sword or shield of their make, it may very well be worth purchasing.
