Default Where is Sylvan War Lore?

Hey there,

I was surfing the net and found an excerpt of "Sylvan War Lore", it seems it is GURPS 3e. I have been wondering if GURPS 4e has something similiar (and by similar I mean elvish fighting styles).

What can you tell me about this?

Thank you,

Converted for 4e in Martial Arts: Yrth Fighting Styles p.18.

This is a rather more interesting book than you might think from its title. If you are interested in GURPS Martial Arts it's worth having whether you care about Yrth or not.

It's been updated in Martial Arts: Yrth Fighting Styles. It's actually three armed martial arts styles: Bow, Sword, and Staff.

I'll second that. It adds some nonhuman Martial Arts that can be easily ported to other settings or inspire your own new Styles.

Oh wow, thanks!

This is kind of funny/weird because I have been thinking of getting Martial Arts: Yrth these days. And I agree, the book's title gives another idea of its contents.

I will definitively look for this!
