Is it a wargame or an old fantasy rpg?

Someone ever played it?

Is it just rules for medieval/fantasy combat or there are sections on magic as well?

I just saw my copy of this the other day when I was moving a stack of books from one place to another.

The question is generally moot for RPGs of this period. To be an RPG back then meant to be a miniatures wargame with supplemental rules for role playing. The description "adventures" on the cover pretty much confirms its RPG status (although I've never seen it).

I know.  I need a better system.  Implementing the new system is on the same list as generating a list of what I own.

i wasn't really commenting on your organizational skills; i just wanted to make a ghostbusters reference..... i checked. age of chivalry is combat system only with a tiny bit of larger campaign material (but all centered around combat). no magic at all.
