Weapons and Armor

The world of The Swallowed Sun is less technologically advanced than the “default” assumptions of a standard D&D game. For the most part, technology is analogous to that of medieval Earth’s 8th to 10th century. As such, some weapons and armor technology is either unavailable, or at least completely unknown to the denizens of the region. As the campaign progresses, these lists may be expanded.
