Greetings to the armored combatants of the Middle Kingdom –

They will be added to the handbook in the next revision, however, having been published here are to be considered official rule changes and will be enforced as such.

Section VIII.A.15:
“Weapons under 48” (1.22 m) or greater than 7’ 6” (2.29 m) in length may have either a thrusting tip or a butt spike, but not both at the same time.” shall be amended to read:

“Weapons under 48” (1.22 m) may not use a butt spike. Weapons greater than 7’ 6” (2.29 m) in length may have either a thrusting tip or a butt spike, but not both at the same time.”

Section VIII.B:
“Weapons that shall be used in one hand shall have the following requirements:” shall be amended to read :

“Weapons that shall be used in one hand, and are defined as being 48” or less in total length, shall have the following requirements:”
