Why didn't the Kingdom ever attempt to use Tsurani weapons and armour?

From: Raymond E. Feist

Mostly because . . .

You'd have to train amorers in an entirely new technology and while you were doing that,

1) you're not making any money.

2) you're losing money while you make the new armor.

3) you're not making any money.

4) you're throwing away an infrastructure of long established technology, one which cost you lots of money, and spending lots of money to install a new one for negligible benefit.

5) see 1 and 3 above.

The only time you see a wholesale move to new technology is when it is clearly beneficial.  Amor when through slow evolutionary changes until the introduction of gunpowerder, when suddenly armor became a far less significant issue, for one example.

Best, R.E.F.
