From publisher blurb:
It's not the bruises that kill!
Put fast and furious combat into your adventure! Arms Law delivers fantasy and medieval melee and missile attacks with realistic-plus results. Simple to use, you'll puncture, slash, or crush your foes with convincing fatality!
Arms Law expands the combat system from Rolemaster Fantasy Role Playing to its full breadth.
Attacks from dozens of weapons are all handled differently so that each weapn has a unique feel and flavour. The same is true for animal attacks and other hostile maneuvers like falling, brawling, and martial arts.
Remember... it's not the bruises that kill! Critical damage is what wastes your enemies! Arms Law presents a dozen types of critical strikes - described in vivid detail- that allow you to graphically describe the brutality of combat!
This edition of Arms Law was first published in 1999.
