Description Edit | History

Arms Law & Claw Law, 2nd Edition is the core rules weapons system for Iron Crown's original Rolemaster fantasy role-playing system. This second edition book combines the first edition versions of the two earlier works entitled "Arms Law" and "Claw Law".

The Arms Law portion covered weapon attacks while the Claw Law portion covers animal attacks, martial art attacks, and inanimate object attacks such as those from thrown objects or a fall.

The book contained detailed attack charts for 30 weapons and 12 natural weapons and charts and statistics for various critical strikes, fumbles, weapon conversions, maneuvers, animal statistics, armor and shield penalties, and similar text information.

More Information Edit | History

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

The “Fourth Edition” or printing of Arms Law combines Arms Law and Claw Law into a single book with a glossy cover. The pages containing the charts are printed on lighter weight cardstock pages than the previous versions, but are no longer perforated for easy removal. A section 10 is added that contained clarifications on Martial Arts, Critical Results, a Note on Canceling Actions, Effects of "Stub" Rounds, Position Bonuses, The Importance of Parrying, clarification on Missile Ranges,Optional Armor Damage Rule, and an Optional Shield Bash rule.
