Welcome to Issue 23 of the Rolemaster Fanzine.

This month I have been getting rather excited about adventures. As you will know I have taken it upon myself to create starting adventures for RMu. The new game system is due for release at some point in 2019 and the one thing that a role playing game needs is adventures.

I have more adventures detailed on the blog than I have published so far in the fanzine. It occured to me this week that if you forget the idea of producing 12 starting adventures to give GMs a broad choice of starting points but rather put them together in a structure we are already part way to building a bigger adventure.

I don’t want a linear railroad. What I am thinking is a starting point, the adventure in this issue, Revenge! At the other end the adventure will conclude with City of Forgotten Heroes and the penultimate step and then a final showdown.

Sandwiched between these bookends will be a number, as yet unknown adventures. The intention is that these unknown adventures will be party size and party level independent. They will also be position neutral so as GM you pick the ones you like and do them in the order that works well for your group.

Making them level independent also means that you don’t have to push your players through adventures they don’t really want to do to simply earn enough experience points.

So this is the plan. It is slightly different to what I had envisioned in January but this structure means that if I formally create City of Forgotten Heroes and the showdown. Then with just one of the in between adventures you have a viable Adventure Path even if it is rather short. Each month from that point on the path becomes both longer and more sophisticated.

So that is my new mission and it all starts with Revenge!

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.
