        The rules are not explicitly said to be optional, which I think is a mistake.

        However, they do have the neat property (explicitly designed in), as mentioned in the rules, that if you assume everyone has roughly the same level of weapons and armour, and weapons and armour of the same level, then everything cancels out. So if you want to ignore weapons and armour, simply assume that everyone is armed 'appropriately'.
