I still think this is Conan's fight to loose, because the terms imply that even while he's not limited to it, at some point Batman is going to try and fight Conan with a sword, which is stepping into his world, and the Christian Bale Batman is not experienced enough yet to be able to ditch the sword after realizing his out matched and coming up with a good enough 'Plan B' in time to take down and angry Conan.
Dare I say Conan (I have only seen the movies, looked at a few magazines, and one book) would not beat Bale or comic Batman? Conan may use a sword, be good with it, but Batman has more finesse in combat overall regardless of accoutrement. In other words Batman is a surgeon, Conan is a lumberjack. I admit we have not seen enough Bale with a sword to judge with certainty. Having neutral swords pushes this even further in Batman’s favor. IMO.
each combatant can fight however he likes, they simply have swords at their disposal if they wish to use them
@scarbearer: @Billdevil: @gravitypress: that said, do you think that against a sword-wielding Conan, Batman would be better off with only his wits and bare hands? Should Batman throw away his sword at the beginning of the fight and try to beat Conan without relying on a sword? Maybe the sword is counter-productive in Batman's hands in this situation? so I added 6) a combatant may even cast aside his sword if he would rather fight without it
