In a fantasy setting, almost everybody (who has the money) has the right to keep and bear arms. The party can stock on weapons at any weapon shop (even when it is useless), and no one will find it strange. It seems like they have their own version of the second amendment.

This trope takes its temporary working title from the second amendment of the US constitution, which says: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Due to this trope being present in almost every RPG ever, please only list aversions and subversions

  • Dungeons & Dragons:
    • Both the 1st Edition Dungeon Master's Guide and the 1E Oriental Adventures books said that peasants were forbidden to possess combat weapons (swords, lances, etc.
