Rolemaster Fanzine Issue 31

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to issue 31 of the RolemasterBlog Fanzine. At the time of writing, there are 62 days left of 2019 and I really hope that the team at ICE hit their target of resolving RMu this year.

I don’t think that it will happen. Mainly because at the beginning of the month Creature Law was not complete, although everything else was in Nicholas’s editing queue. It is possible that Creature Law was finished and added to the queue this month but for anyone even reading the thousand or so pages of RMu in a month is quite an endeavor but to do it at an editors level is a lot to ask. Even if all of that has happened and there were no editing changes required one has to wonder about art.

Would you put our an entirely new edition of your game and reuse art from old versions? I wouldn’t. That means that there is a lot of art to commission. The art commissioning is something that Nicholas takes great pleasure in, and I understand why, but we haven’t heard those magic words yet. Given the amount of art needed, typically an RPG book has one piece of art for every four pages so there is going to be something like 300 pieces of art required. 62 days is a very short period for gathering that volume of art.

I really hope I am wrong but I think a Christmas release of RMu is unlikely.

This year was always about adventures in the fanzine and the Demon War is heading into what I will imagine to be the last third of the adventure path. Depending on your starting level you characters could be 12th level by now. It would be nice if I could get the entire thing concluded in 12 parts, this being the 9th.

We will see….

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.
