Default [Low-Tech] Martial Arts & Low-Tech

I love the weapon listings in Martial Arts and in GCA add its data file to my Dungeon Fantasy stack so I can have them. However Low-Tech offers to add and change weapon stats. So my question is how will the two books interact in that regard?

Will Low-Tech replace the listings with more up-to-date stats, even if it means repeating many of them, or will Low-Tech supplement the listing in Martial Arts? I seem to recall hearing that Martial Arts was made to match Basic Set stats with the future Low Tech being what would change those values? For that matter, will Low Tech maybe simply have a way to convert the older stats?

Last we heard, Low Tech was to provide one stop reference for hand weapons, so yes it was repeating all the weapon table entries. I can't imagine after doing all that proofreading work those'll be scrapped, though I suppose they could get pulled out for a separate e23 release.

There will be some changes, but you seem to be vastly overestimating how serious they're going to be if you can imagine needing a conversion guide. They've all got the same stat columns, just an occasional change of the numbers in the column.

The way GURPS Martial Arts is set up, the focus is on the muscle, bone, and training of the warrior behind the weapon. GURPS Low-Tech will not address this. Martial Arts Styles are not going to be changed. Some of the weapon stats might shift a little. But if you think you need a new copy of GURPS Martial Arts with 1 point higher of damage with this impaling weapon, I'm not sure that this is necessary. Use the updated weapon stats for Low-Tech, and the Styles/combat options from Martial Arts.

Or don't. Nothing prevents you, if you already have weapons in play, from using weapons out of the Martial Arts weapon listings.

I don't mean a new version of Martial Arts, I was more wondering if the couple hundred weapons in Martial Arts would be repeated with newer stats or if each would stand alone when it comes to those stats?
