I believe the list indicate only the changes to the standard list
presented in the PHB. Thus, any weapon in the normal weapons listing in the PHB
is accessible to all races, with the exception of those listed in the
Birthright rulebook which are specifically associated with particular races.

Yow!! close lightning hit, so I'm outta here!!
