Combat Style Cards have been gathered into a single Encyclopaedia that is now 830 1032 pages long. There are now almost 720 Combat Styles and almost 120 Combat Style Traits in the Encyclopaedia. The Encyclopaedia contains Combat Style Traits and all the new indices in a single volume.
Combat Style is a combination of weapons that a culture or organisation trains to be effectively used together. Combat Style usually include one or much more rarely more than one Combat Style Traits. Combat Style Cards are quick reference cards which show examples of such styles together with weapon statistics and how this combination of weapons interacts with Combat Special Effects. At the start of this document there are indices showing what styles are used in what areas and what organisations etc. Pick a combat style from these for your character or NPC and use this as a quick reference during the game.
There is a table of content by area and table of contents is clickable so one can easily reach the combat style wanted.

There are some very nice sword and sorcery scenarios and additional tools material available from the stalwart Old Bones. Many of them are placed in Tozer, an area that can be readily transplanted to most any Sword and Sorcery campaign.
I created combat style cards for the 30 currently existing combat styles in those publications.They are of course indexed as the already existing styles. They include also couple of nifty Combat Style Traits that I will add to the encyclopedia of Combat Style Traits soon.
