A Review of the Supplement
Bastion Press has assembled a plethora of new weapons, over one hundred-twenty...There are also over seventy new weapon qualities...Over forty new types of armor are listed...over seventy new armor special qualities... Even though the title of this book is Arms and Armor, there are extras like magical masks, magical boots, new constructs and construction materials, new mundane extras for armor and weapons and new rules. Optional weapons rules allow for advancement for intelligent weapons and new extraordinary special purposes. Armor related rules are presented for using armor as damage reduction versus AC and shield parries. All of these rules are well written and well presented. The weapon advancement is straightforward. The Extraordinary special purposes for weapons are powerful, yet something new for your more powerful parties to own or face. A short rules set is given for separating double weapons. This is one of those rules that ‘just makes sense’ once you think about it. Overall, Arms and Armor is a book that every gaming group could make use of.

A Review of the Supplement
For those players who love the spiked chain as a weapon, they will enjoy the option of using the Chained Axe or Double Chained Axe. Fans of Scottish highlander clans now have the claymore as a choice for arming their character. There are numerous listings for weapons that have an eastern or oriental flavor.
New armor types listed in the first armor section include: Bardic Armor, Silken Web Armor, Bone Mail Armor, Oaken Tree Bark Armor, Morbius Mail Armor, and Taskmaster Armor.
Overall, Arms & Armor is an absolute must-have for anyone who games. There are choices for every class with everything being fairly well balanced.
