Rolemaster is a detailed role playing game, providing the means to create all kind of characters and resolve maneuvers of any kind, all by following a consistent set of rules and tables.

ERA (Electronic Roleplaying Assistant) is the ultimate companion for Rolemaster campaigns. Just by running this free application players can create their characters using a step by step wizard, then level them up and configure all details in stats, skills and special abilities, even overriding the automatic calculations. Afterwards, they can be added to a running campaign in the adventuring module. From there, the game master can control all aspects of the game: resolve maneuvers, resistances, resting, and of course, spell casting and combat.

Players can also oversee the current status of their characters as the adventure progresses, simply by accessing the application with their mobile devices. This also allows them to check all known spells with full descriptions, current skill values and more. Inventory and game master-to-player communication also have their own systems.

Get ERA for free and try it out using the included Rolemaster Classic sample races, professions, spells, attacks and criticals.

Complete datasets for Rolemaster Classic, namely Rolemaster Classic Arms Law, Rolemaster Classic Spell Law, and Rolemaster Classic Character Law, can be purchased from DriveThruRPG.

Tutorial videos are available (see link below). For technical support for this product, please visit the Rolemaster Software board of the ICE forums at www.ironcrown.com

ERA is compatible with Windows, Mac OSX and Linux.

I found the ERA program poorly put together.
There is no option for adding your own characters and the character generator never worked for me
The help menus did not clearly state how to use the screens so it was a lot of trial and error in getting them to work and when you get to the save it says you missed "something" but never explains what that something was
My kick at the combat screens with system pregenerated characters had no help menus and was cryptic at best
You should not have to do hours of research to work a program
I am sorry I wasted some money on the additional modules
Buy with caution

This seems quite buggy, but before I give my review I thought I'd check here in case I'm doing something wrong. I'm on Windows 10 using the latest FireFox browser. I've read the installation guide and watched the tutorial on the product page. First, there's no up or down arrow beside skills when creating the character. That took me a bit to realize. I can still click there as if the arrow buttons are there, but they are not being displayed. After creating a character, the page just loads forever. If I try to click the tabs on the bottom (Characteristics, Skills, Information, History, and Inventory) nothing happens. I can save the character and view the character sheet, but I can't do anything with it after loading it up again. When I watch the tutorial, the user just clicks on the "skills" button and can see the skills, but nothing happens for me. I'm using the RMFRP ruleset/exe. Am I doing something wrong, or does this software just not work for Windows?

I have Era and I'm on Windows 10 but I am using Chrome and I don't have any problems like you have. Maybe try another browser?

Well, I would rather not install Chrome if I at all have the choice (and I do). The documentation said it was supposed to work in Fire Fox, but that doesn't appear to be the case. Since my last Windows update I am now unable to load any character sheets I was testing with, or even the two that came with it by default. I just get an error that says "SystemConfigurationFailed: Could not find category named Perceptions in group named Awareness". Sigh. I guess this product just isn't for me.

On the ICE forums it was noted that the RMU module is pretty much ready to go; they are just waiting for the publication of the RMU books to make it active.

While I do wish to support ICE, I am on a limited budget. What would you folks consider a minimum in terms of modules to purchase (Core RMSS or RMFRP whichever is current) to allow to character creation (including spells and gear?) I suppose also the Arms/Claw for combat right? Thanks!

P.S. I plan to add more as I go :)

LOL... as soon as they finish the damn thing. RMU *supposedly* queued up behind a bunch of 'important' HARP books. ICE certainly don't seem to be in a rush to get it out the door; after all it's only been a DECADE.

See my post above. Voriig just confirmed RMU for ERA is basically ready to go; once the books come out, this will be made available.

Will era run on a tablet or mobile device?

ERA must be installed on a Windows, Linux, MacOS, OS X or Raspberry Pi computer for the server to run. Then you can connect from any phone, tablet, netbook, notebook, tv or whatever has a browser in it.

I use Linux and the Linux install instructions appear to do nothing, I can get the windows version running under Wine but I'd much rather have it running under Linux, has anyone else got it running?, If so, how?. Some better documentation might help. Otherwise it looks good.

If you are running a 64bit Linux, you might be missing the 32bit libraries.
For example I use lib32z1, libx11-6:i386 and libgl1-mesa-glx:i386

Then you run ./ERA-RMC or ./ERA-RMFRP depending on your ruleset.

If you have additional questions, the best place to ask for advice is on the Rolemaster Software Forum:

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
