Fightclub for Imperial Age.

Information on Fisticuffs, Bartitsu, and swordplay. Plenty of background and history and bunch of new feats.

Very useful in a game where guns might be rare.

All the Imperial Age books are all well written and features art from the age, either public domain art and paintings as well as some original art. In all cases the art is very evocative of the time and very well done.

The books are all easy to read, with clean layout and font sizes. They can be printed with ease without killing your printer cartridge.

Very cool book! I'm adapting a lot of the material in this book in order to make a "Noble" type character class for my D&D games (a class with a non-martial background that can still hold it's own with the other classes). For the default setting it's written for, this seems to be an essential for an Imperial Age game. Very well done, very well written, and well balanced.

Mostly a useful survey of the hand-to-hand combat styles taught in the late Victorian period, represented by advanced classes and statistics for implements such as the sword cane and reinforced walking stick, and particularly referring to Sherlock Holmes as the cover suggests. Good treatment of a defensive fighting style (bartitsu) and information on boxing.

I'm not too happy about editing. I was disappointed with the Fencing Master and background information on savate and the 1 1/2 pages spent on fiction pitting Self-Defence Girl against Saucy Jack detracted from the product for me.
