Apparently there is a review in Korean, here

http://trpgkorea.wikia.com/wiki/Codex_Martialis

but the auto-translator didn't make much sense. I don't suppose anyone
around here speaks korean?

Just introducing hajani the game too much change, another supplicant, or D & D base in the Include Johnny balances do not match the problem supplicant entertainment. Bother Codex Martialis and positive hajamyeon, universal system, d20 of tastes faintly even while maintaining the western fence The point is to reproduce. In the presence of historical research to recreate musuljeok d20 supplicant is pyeonghalman Entertainment is one of the most excellent. Of course, these games help to reproduce the historical research and a separate issue drives is interesting, but by enrolling in fantasy sword or a medieval knight in Western thought about the physical disability to see if the person is also a fact to consider. d20 rules are familiar, Viscount rule or rule variations reluctance, nor martial rationality and game introduction if you are at least once see it seeing Supple Lehman purely is. = Related work = The Riddle of Steel - Created Western Fencing Specialists, to represent The Western fence RPG.



I can't actaully tell if it's a good review or a negative review, but it looks ver interesting and I bet I could learn something from it.
Also I thnk I messed it up trying to add a comment (asking for a translation) the whole thing is on one line now.

I fixed the korean translation a little bit by search and replace of some obvious mistakes (like 'dog' for 'dice' and Marshall Reese for Martialis) it's a little clearer but I still can't tell if it's a positive review or not.

Codex Martialis historical martial arts (most of Western and Japanese mugisul) and d20 seopeulrimeonteuda to figure it out under the representation. However, considerable distance from the core d20 side.
To reproduce the historical martial arts Codex Martial is divided into three main contents of the lease.

Table of Contents

Martial Pool (Martial Pool)
Martial Pool (the MP) that can be used to combat roll d20 dice pool concept. By default, a per-per-BAB 1, minimum 1, maximum 4 gaekkajireul is recommended. The attack roll with a pool of Martial, defensive roll, roll resistance, the amount you want to move to allocate as much as you can use. Since the introduction of the Martial Pool Rules Fighting dipensibeulri concept or the concept of a full attack, move, rules, etc. Martial grass is replaced by an attack of opportunity.
A pool of Martial's decision, may be a dice, and several of the MP assigned to the determination of a dice roll and several of them to choose the best one can use them. Martial, a character with a full four dice attacks by allocating 1 per 1 per 4 meeting may be attacked, and 4 dice to attack all at once by allocating a certain will be a meeting to attack.
The best thing rolling multiple dice 20, the probability of getting one because it uses natural, natural, a growing probability that a dramatically reduced. Martial, a dice is a full degree of probability +4 bonus to the d20 roll, giving the opportunity to give a similar probability, because Martial does not use a pool if you are using d20 base rulmaneul Martial +4 bonus to pull a dice award As can be chihwanhal. -10 Under penalty when a successful attack to force the rules and get to blow, you do not have body armor to attack sites (that do not affect the DR of armor instead of receiving a penalty for hitting) is part of the rule attacks.
Martial attacked the tea ceremony by sharing a pool of the probability of getting more damage, but because of rules forcing critical and armor pahwe Martial molahjuneun pool side at a time, to ensure solid hit.
Have an active defense and passive defense to avoid passive defense will just move the Martial Pool in lieu of AC is not used. Martial uses a pool of active defensive behavior and using weapons of bangpaena brushed chyeonaegeona relative pay is the way the weapon. Passive defense is a 8 + Defense + Dex + other fixed value calibration. Active defense is a 1d20 + BAB + Dex + Weapon Defense + and other compensation.

Martial feet (Martial Feats)
The talent of martial arts techniques of representing. In fact, Western medieval, Renaissance and mugisul The majority of wrestling, fencing and the Philippines, Japan goryu mugisul is an incidental. Martial Codex lease rate in the BAB 1 per additional line is recommended.
Counter Attack, Half Sword, Lunge, Master Cut, nukicheuke (feet), with shields and weapons to capture the same historical techniques to reproduce the actual number is used. Most of Martial's talent pool is to work together in using a particular technique or a specific pool of free Martial enabling act is a way. History of martial arts techniques, the representation of D & D because, as far as overall efficiency of the power balance is excellent, but rather than focus on a variety of techniques, to mix with the concept of the Martial Pool tate can easily shave a balance is hard to measure.
Hajamyeon bother sensitive feet, tree hansongeom + Shield, yangsongeom, polam, rapier, wrestling gubunhalsu tree is instantaneous. Nukicheukewa ilbonsaek such a strong technology skills, but they have a foot in the Western fence similar to each other similar to the way Asian and Western martial arts, since many aspects are related to knowledge can be applied to as little sonjilhaeseo Oriental martial arts.

Weapons and Armour
Martialis Reese is a weapon of Codex D & D 4E, similar to the weapon skill bonus, every weapon is basically to give an attack bonus. Reach attack bonus and attack bonus awards two types of speed in attack, striking from a distance into the tarot is the first to write a reach attack bonus attack speed bonus, which writes husokta. Ray flourish a weapon like any other windows reach to revive the big bonus, as quickly as hansongeom or dagger-wielding weapons bigger speed bonuses.
Depending on the type of weapon to go beat writer slap stick type of cut changes. DR thrust the weapon through the options in the rules favorable, but the type of damage usually can be applied to specific individuals in the Martial feet affect the side.
Armor piercing (AP) levels in the original armor pikyina polamryu relative to the same weapons as the DR, the AP values are ignored.
Defence Weapon in value at the time of active defense weapons as the weapons of the defense value of the award gives the award.
Codex Martialis AC bonus, not the armor damage reduction (DR) affects. Parts of the body armor that covers ttajyeoseo partial armor, and half-armor, medium armor, full armor specification is divided into, a lot of body armor to cover more areas are deophiji Cold shot will be difficult to attack. Area by a combination of armor you can wear.
The shield is not simply to give AC bonus, shall be treated as defensive weapons only. Active in the defense of the defense shield and a free bonus dice is always applied fairly consistent with historical research is historically a strong armor.
The status of weapons and armor, historical examples are fairly well reflected. Western martial artists and sword armor scholars D & D is incorrect historical documents cited in the wind weapons and armor for the wrong terms and prejudice popular spreading the evil spirit mouth together to criticize, which he compared to sleeping Codex Martialis weapons armor category constitutes the varieties of historical thought, and if stats are very good that is destined. In addition, Codex Martialis, unlike grass, weapons and armor on the other d20 or D & D without any problem even if it introduces can be seen melting. However, changing the attack bonus by type, AC and DR made into a rule it is true that the hassle. Martialis entertainment, such as Codex supplicant would be worth the hassle to ignore something like that, but gamers.

Advantages and Disadvantages
Frankly, Codex Martialis is a very roughly constructed d20 Supplement. Originally D & D compatible with the basic rules are difficult to start. Core D & D much-ignored or changed, nor is the game I did not even care it is difficult to meet the balance. Codex martialis uses the fundamental concept of solving the most difficult part of this is compatibility. Alternative +4 bonus dice, but giving a free gift is difficult, because they all fix the same.
Codex Martialis Iron Heroes or The Book of Iron Might as low magic, high-Martial, settings, comparable to chocolate, Codex Martialis that HP even a knife or two rooms in the lie enough cap 2 recommended, so fantasy unreal force about the negative position compatible because it is almost difficult to watch. But if the campaign uses Codex masyeolriseuman gulrineunde completeness or complete enough to not be a problem, or if it is not having sex Supple. Just introducing too much change hajani game, another supplicant, or D & D base to include Johnny in the balance, the problem does not fit Entertainment supplicant.
Codex bother with Martialis hajamyeon positive, universal tastes faintly of the d20 system, even while keeping out the Western fence can be reproduced. In the presence of historical research to recreate musuljeok d20 supplicant is pyeonghalman Entertainment is one of the most excellent. Of course, these games help to reproduce the historical research and a separate issue drives is interesting, but by enrolling in fantasy sword or a medieval knight in Western thought about the physical disability to see if the person is also a fact to consider. familiar with the d20 rules, Viscount has no reluctance to transform a rule or rules, martial arts, rationality and if you are introduced to the game at least once to see it purely Places Lehman Supple.

Found an interesting discussion about Codex on here:

http://boards.4chan.org/tg/res/13262154

Somebody seems to like it, and is encouraging some other folks to try it out.

I guess the whole D20 thing is a big barrier and a lot of people assume this is TROS for D20, though of course (in my humble opinion) it really isn't, it's quite different.
