Description Edit | History

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.

More Information Edit | History

From "The Evolution of Arms Law (1980-2003)" by Brent Knorr:

In 1999, the RMSS line was halted and Rolemaster Fantasy Role Playing, or RMFRP for short, was started. This was to be basically a reprint of Rolemaster Standard System, being advertised as 95% compatible.

The RMFRP version of Arms Law is virtually identical to the RMSS version, even down to both of them missing a row for a result of 60 on the Dagger table. However, they did fix the typo for a result of 149 against Armor Type 10 on the Broadsword Table in the RMFRP version. It was now properly listed as doing 22EK instead of 18EK. The RMFRP version eliminates one extra printing of the Krush Critical Strike table. The chart on page 92 in RMFRP is missing the listing for 4.14 Non-Weapon Fumble Table, but the chart itself is in the book. A couple of the appendices on how to use Arms Law without Rolemaster that are in the RMSS version are missing from the RMFRP version, these are "The Tactical Combat Sequence" and "Maneuvering and Movement" and "Optional Rules".
