This book covers in complete detail such topics as the specifics of combat, non-lethal weapons combat, special maneuvers, and weapons mastery and training, higher levels and the off-shoots that come with the rank (castles, followers, assistants), and extensive listings of fascinating monsters, many of which were never seen in any other place again (among which there are several truly alien extraplanars and a few utility creatures). All the rules, Guidelines on play from levels 1-36, comprehensive lists of weaponry and equipment, and an overview of the Known World and the Hollow World game settings.
