Improved Weapons and Armor Reference

Having all of the most common weapons on one page makes my job as a GM much easier. It's also a great way to calculate the advantages of great strength when it comes to wearing armor. For the rules purist at heart I've included a list of what I moved or left off below. To download the pdf (144 KB) click the below link.

Here's a list of notes:

• This is meant to be a list of most commonly encountered weapons. I'm shooting for a "typical" fantasy feel for this list and that's why, for the most part, the peculiar weapons are not found here. The except being the Quarterstaff and the Trident.

• Everything is listed under the appropriate Talent for the weapon with the exception of the Trident. For this reference page I listed it as Pole Weapon. (In other words you can use the Trident with the Pole Weapon Talent. To be able to use it in conjunction with a Net you must take the Net and Trident Talent.)

• Cavalry Lance is simply called Lance

• I did not include the Backpack as a passive shield.

• Wizard staffs are listed.

•Thrown rock is listed in the notes for the sling.

• I've included some of the common medieval weapon equivalents in parentheses. You can see this list on page 12 of Advanced Melee. I use miniature figures and many of those figures have these types of weapons. This makes it easier to match the figures weapon to the weapon stats.

• This list has no prices. It's just a quick Reference sheet. Refer back to the original rules for weapon prices.

• MA is listed as a minus, rather than simply a number. (This makes it easier, for example, to figure out the MA of elves or high strength characters.)
