This is a really useful generic resource for any warrior in need of some retail therapy... and even better if you happen to be the GM for such warriors!
Within the pages of this product, which is written 'in character' as a mail-order catalogue for armour, weapons and, well, just about anything the fighting man or woman might want or need, you will find a wealth of armour, helmets, shields and weapons. Each is illustrated - as if posed on a shop dummy/stand - and accompanied by notes and commentary, even down to its availability for human, elf, dwarf, etc... customers. Even better, there is a fillable space (which saves) to allow a GM to add appropriate prices for his chosen game system and setting. So, instead of the poor GM having to look up everything the characters want to purchase, he can add prices and print it out to pass to the players to make their selections.
It's filled with all manner of realistic comments such as for a suit of Paladin plate armour: "This armour has an integral chain for a holy symbol and side chains for attaching a holy book." Now, what Paladin wouldn't fancy that? Or maybe you want your gear personalised? "A heraldic design can be added to the breastplate for a small extra charge."
The sketches are crisp and clear, and the accompanying descriptions explain precisely what you get for whatever you choose to purchase. There are even specially-designed armours for female warriors - and I don't mean chainmail bikinis but proper armour that you can fight in! A nice touch...
Weapons come in similar generous amounts, illustrated and described (but please, find out how to spell 'vicious' - about the only error I've found!)
As an added bonus, the product rounds out with a listing of the sales staff - excellent instant NPCs to assist your warriors when they set out for their retail therapy! Overall, a delightful work and useful too.
