That 825482349234 was the list of weapons makers who complied with the GM specs not the weapons themselves However, we did exactly as you suggested. We narrowed it down took a few large, a few not so large and a few smaller weapons makers and they are the only ones with approval here. Some are approved for all their weapons some only bows or melee.
It has reduced the workload by a heap shame people cant read though, as in read the approved list...but there never has been any accounting for idiots!
Its one of the reasons I don't wear weapons to thentis period :-/ it's rather amusing. A warrior going to a city entirely weaponless.
