What the Reviewers Say...

"It has definitely replaced both Arms & Armor 3.0 and From Stone to Steel at my gaming table. 5 (out of 5) Stars!" -- ENWorld.


"As one can see there is a lot of information packed into this book. I covered all of it but obviously could only pick out a few items to really point out. I think this book has a lot to offer most people as it has a items that will enhance a high and low magic setting. It can easily enhance most fantasy games with new and different weapons and armor that will confuse and confound the players." -- Crothian at ENWorld


"This is a beautiful book. If you like weapons and armor, you'll most likely love this book. Extremely useful. I recommend it. 4.5 (out of 5) stars." -- Prince Nightchilde at Morgrave University


"While nothing is truly essential for d20 except for the PHB and DMG, this book is about as useful as a non-core, non-Wizards of the Coast book gets. I wouldn't use everything in it, but for the most part, not only is it a great reference, it's got a lot of cool new stuff. A-" -- Jeremy Reaban at RPG.Net
