Well, no RPG book is ever a requirement. The GM can just manage combat while everyone else fights over the book.

But, realistically, Adventurers provides the players with a primer on the game and setting, while providing all the information they need to arrive at the table with a character in hand. Beyond that the GM can just manage the flow of information using his knowledge of Exploits.

Think of the old AD&D Player's Handbook and DMG. There were no combat rules in the former. Only character creation information. The GM handled translating player ideas into rules.
A man said to the universe:
"Sir I exist!"
"However," replied the universe,
"The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation."
