Rolemaster Fanzine Issue 22

Rolemaster Fanzine Issue 22

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to Issue 22, February 2019

This is the second issue of 2019.

So it is February (actually it is 27th of Jan but it will be Feb by the time you get to read this) and there is no sign of RMu making an appearance.

Part of my desire to see the new edition of Rolemaster hit the shelves is to start calling it RMu rather than RMU as it is most commonly referred to on the forums. When the game hits DriveThruRPG there will be no mention of the Unified suffix. The game will be Rolemaster, not Rolemaster Unified. So the lowercase u is in honour of the fact that there is no u at all.

This issue is mostly taken up with another starting adventure. This will be triple statted for RM2/RMC, RMFRP/RMSS and RMu. I hope that every issue will be an improvement on the previous one and that I will improve the layout and presentation of these adventures. Maybe by the end of the year these will be truly professional quality adventure modules.

In addition, this month I want to talk a bit about Rolemaster and Against the Darkmaster and how they relate to Rolemaster. They must have a relationship as all three occupy the same space on peoples gaming bookshelves as simulationist D100 games.

In December I asked for inspiration for these starter adventures. The first thing that came back was the Caravan Guard opening adventure. This is my take on a Caravan Guard Duty opening adventure. It has the working title of “The Open Fist”

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.
