Armored Combat Revision

The Society Earl Marshal recently released a new edition of the Armored Combat handbook. It has some rule revisions so it was the right time to review the Midrealm handbook.

Sir Draenge and I reviewed the Society handbook and have merged in previous Midrealm rules, with some changes. We are asking for feedback and commentary through Sunday November 12.

In the interests of getting it out for feedback quickly the formatting is rough in some places.

Feedback can be sent to [email protected] and to [email protected].

Changes to the Midrealm edition from the Society level include:

Added: Heat and Air Quality rules

Continued: requirements for hand and elbow protection

Removed: Weapons 48 inches or less (1.22 m) or greater than 7.5 inches (2.29 m) in length may have either a thrusting tip or a butt spike, but not both at the same time.

Added: The use of Mandrake-style rubber thrusting tips is prohibited on all weapons

Changed: Foam heads now allowed on weapons over 6 feet

Changed: Authorization requirements to become and MIT and Warranted marshal

Changed: Dead combatant rules

We are also in the process of reviewing the engagement rules with the East Kingdom and with AEthelmearc, so that section is not yet included.
