This is a good expansion for Rolemaster, including many Asian weapons not in Arms Law. It has a couple of "joke" "weapons" that i didn't receive well, but maybe others would like them. It has at least one historical sort-of-inaccuracy in that the three sectioned staff was typically longer, but it works "as is." Overall this is a good product and worth buying especially if you want to use Asian weapons in Rolemaster.

Additional weapons are cool and provide fun options. The difference in this vs arms law, is that the arms law combat tables are more realistic. Against full plate, a 2H sword ends up doing Krush criticals, where in The Armory, all criticals for a given weapon are *always* a specific type, but weapons that have the possibility of doing other critical types may choose to do so at a set penalty.

This loses the randomness of combat a bit, and this makes me a bit disappointed in the book as I liked the core mechanics much more. I liked the realism in all slashing weapons turning into bludgeoning criticals against full plate, since that's kind of what ended up happening in real life.

This book is a step back, I recommend that you get Arms Law instead. It probably wouldn't be too difficult to change these crit tables to be like a similar weapon from arms law.
