RolemasterBlog Fanzine Issue 40


Welcome to issue 40 of the RolemasterBlog Fanzine.

As I write this Gen Con online is in full swing. I am pleased to say that ICE and Rolemaster is being well represented. I have read plenty of praise for both Hurin’s and Wolfshield’s game mastering.
With RMu getting ever closer, I am going to continue with the theme of publishing adventures. All games are going to need gameable content. When I started the blog many years ago, it was in response to a question ‘Where is all the gameable content?’

I am not sure a public forum, such as the blog is the right place to publish adventures. It is always disappointing to have a player obviously know the ending of an adventure.
Someone suggested making the fanzine a Patreon funded effort. The patreon supporters would get the magazine for free, non-supporters would be able to buy the magazine as they can now.

I am not sure about that idea. As it is, I welcome contributions from anyone and everyone. I do not see myself as a gatekeeper, more of a facilitator. Putting the fanzine behind a paywall would not help spread the Rolemaster gospel.

This brings me to the regular offer. If you have anything you would like to share, I will happily publish general interest Rolemaster articles as well as adventures. I pay using a profit share basis on a pro-rata per page scheme.

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.
