Item description for RuneQuest: Advanced Combat by Bryan Steele...
Thrust. Parry. Riposte. Miss. Dodge... these are the common sounds from a RuneQuest battle scene. At least, they are what can be heard from a battle scene that has not graduated to using the Advanced Combat Guide. It has been said that a good swashbuckling scene or martial arts fight can turn any gaming session into an epic adventure - and we have now given our fans exactly what they need to create them! RuneQuest: Advanced Combat Guide is a collection of optional rules for use by RuneQuest players that are designed to make personal combat more interesting and detailed. Between rules for dramatic duels, fighting styles with attack and defence manoeuvres specific to the weapons involved, and less restrictive rules for armour penalties during combat, this book can revolutionise normal weapon-based combat. Distinct fighting arts based on the Unarmed and Martial Arts skills, complete with their own manoeuvres, can turn even the most simple of attacks into a clever tool. No longer will characters have to simply swing a sword or throw a punch; they are given a host of new options. This book is exactly what it advertises - a guide to making combat in RuneQuest more detailed and interesting. Whether a fencer is making Shallow Strikes to score barely bloodied hits or an Aikido master is breaking his foes bones with Wrenching Grapples, they have this book to thank for the results.
