The Imperial Age: Fisticuffs & Swordplay


Adamant Entertainment is proud to present another supplement for The Imperial Age, our line of Victorian/Steampunk products, made for use with d20 Modern or Past.

“I have some knowledge, however, of baritsu, or the Japanese system of wrestling, which has more than once been very useful to me.”
--Sherlock Holmes, from “The Empty House.”

Whether it be back-alley brawling, fencing challenges, or kickboxing tournaments, martial arts were alive and well in the Victorian age. While the term “martial arts” conjures images of East Asian karate, kung fu, and related styles, the term itself means any form of combat. While historical versions of these styles did find their way west during the Imperial Age, especially in growing “Chinatowns” and similar communities, European combat styles had also been developing for centuries. Many of these, including boxing, fencing, and savate, were organized into official schools and tournaments. Toward the end of the Imperial Age these techniques were blended with East Asian styles to form hybrid styles such as Bartitsu.

The Imperial Age: Fisticuffs & Swordplay is designed to enhance martial flavor in your campaigns. To this end, a number of melee combat flavored advanced classes are presented. These classes are designed to work within any campaign, and include:

  • The Baritsu Master: The martial art of Sherlock Holmes, baritsu is a gentleman's art, concentrating on attacks with the walking stick and defense with the coat or cloak.

  • The Boxer: Fighters who operate under the famed rules of the Marquess of Queensberry.

  • Fair Defender: While a martial art for women is generally frowned upon in polite society (shouldn’t a lady always have a gentleman chaperone to protect her?), there are a growing number of women interested in protecting themselves...

  • Fencing Master: A master of the blade, from any one of the myriad fencing associations and clubs of the Imperial Age.

  • Savateur: A practitioner of Le Boxe Francaise, the French system of kickboxing, Savate.

  • Scrapper: Brutal fighters commonly found in public houses, back alleys, or employed in the Victorian underworld, who have honed their skills through numerous brawls, muggings and gang fights.

    Also included are a number of new martial-arts related feats for use with the above classes.

    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 writte [...]

    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 [...]

    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 Holm [...]

    Livres Scannés
    Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
    Format électronique original
    Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
