Martial Arms Training Manual

Suggested Price $3.50

Slam, Sunder, Batter and Cleave your foes with this combat enhancement that introduces techniques, a new way to wield weapons and utilize fighting styles.


Now available for Fantasy Grounds

Fantasy Grounds


Each weapon and fighting style now has an active component, making them more than a static bonus or hit die, and giving more options and tactical opportunities for you and your allies. The weapon techniques make each weapon useful in different circumstances, and changing your weapon may be the most important thing you do on your turn.

With 3 new Fighting Styles, updated UA fighting styles, new shields, exotic weapons, and a technique for every weapon in 5e, this supplement is designed to provide martial classes the ability to make deeper decisions than damaging an enemy in combat. 

This supplement will slightly increase the power level and greatly increase the versatility of martial classes. A DM should treat this supplement as playtest material and alter techniques, fighting styles, and new weapons as needed.

If you like this supplement, please leave a review or comment. Likewise, if you see anything out of place, post in the discussion or send me a message and I'll get it fixed ASAP. 

Thanks for reading.

Really interesting. All my players are enjoying the flavour of their weapons a lot more, and fighting styles are more meaningful. Well done!

I like this book, nicely formatted and looks like good quality. But, there is some editing needed. See the end of the Garrote entry. Also, the Tower Shield text at the end contradicts the table at the beginning of that entry.

The Garrote text must have slipped in from an earlier version. Thanks for catching that. It will be altered in the next revision.

As to the tower shield, which numbers are in contradiction? The barrier is intended to be 1/2 cover rather than 3/4, if that is what you are referring to.

I found the text you were referring to and it will be altered in the next revision. Probably within a couple days.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
