Rolemaster Core Law

For over four decades, Rolemaster has been the definitive fantasy role-playing game that combines realism and depth without sacrificing playability. Rolemaster Unified is the next evolution drawing upon the best elements of previous editions to create a streamlined and consistent game.

Rolemaster Core Law is the cornerstone of Rolemaster Unified.

Rolemaster Core Law is divided into three parts:

Character Law: A wide range of character creation choices – 22 professions, 23 races, 10 cultures, and a comprehensive system of talents and flaws. A system of 10 temporary and potential stats determined by using both assigned and random elements. A skill development system that allows a character to improve their skill capabilities without absolute restrictions. Complete, consolidated and streamlined guidelines for resolving actions, magic and attacks.

Arms Law: the highly acclaimed combat system. Complete rules for melee, ranged and spell combat, with new effective mechanics for battling large and small monsters. 39 attack tables for weapons, animal, monstrous and spell attacks. 15 critical strike tables – Acid, Cold, Electricity, Grapple, Heat, Holy, Impact, Krush, Puncture, Slash, Steam, Strikes, Subdual, Sweeps, and Unbalance – providing injuries with explicit effects and descriptions.

Gamemaster Law: Helpful guidance on running the game with rules for healing, social skills, fear, and morale as well as environmental hazards, poisons and diseases. Rules and guidance on creating races, cultures and professions using the fully balanced mechanics employed across Rolemaster Unified.

There is one but I can't remember the link to it. If you join the ICE Discord or go to the forum on www.ironcrown.co.uk, you will find it there.

I never played RM (unfortunately!), but I know the rules ... in my opinion RMU is the best version. Well done. (Art is ... mediocre, but not important. Layout: nothing to complain in my humble opinion (final version). I prefer old-school layout over some "new fancy" layout concepts. Rules: finally very streamlined and cohesive! Character sheets may look intimidating, character creation complicated, but actually, it is very streamlined and is done very fast! Some Rolls, a few decisions, done! And the rules are actually kind of lightweight. Of course you have all these attack and crits and fumbles tables (in the end it's Rolemaster!), but aside of these tables ....VERY lightweight and intuitive! I like it very much. (Determination of Stats could have been streamlined in my opinion (similar to Against the Darkmaster; potential max stats could have been skipped), but in the end it's okay (you can use points build fro temp stats; and random rolls for pot. stats are okay; if you don't like it, just skip them)....See more

Skills are a bit more complicated (less complicated then RM Standard System) but everything else so far feels easier.

I was wondering the same. I bought RMSS when it came out hoping to restart a game we loved and hadn't played in years. The new complications of the skill systems just killed it. I might consider buying this edition after all.

Dear All,
As others have indicated, you can contact ICE and give us the appropriate email address for us to send you the discount code for softcover and hardcover copies.
It is possible for me to send the discount codes through DriveThru BUT you need to have configured your DriveThru such that you can receive emails from publishers. I know from when I update products that only 30-40% of customers are configured to receive the update emails. As I don't want to spam folks multiple times, I will send two emails for the discount codes on Friday 14th through DriveThru (there will be an email with the softcover code and a different email with the hardcover code), so please either set your DriveThru configuration so that you get our emails or contact us at ICE directly.
Best wishes,
Nicholas

i was under the impression that if we bought the pdf that we would get a discount for the hardcover when it came out. i'm not going to spend another 50 on top of the 25 i already spent. i love rolemaster but not that much, especially if you multiply that out over multiple books (i bought the spell law pdf as well).

The PDF version has now been updated, taking into account feedback received when it was released. Thanks for that input. The POD version is on its way. The next book to be released will be Spell Law, to be followed by Treasure Law and then Creature Law volume I (of two). For input and questions, we are active on both the ICE forums and our Discord channel.

Repeating the question - will there be a discount on POD for those that have purchased PDF? And same thing for Spell law- dropping $25 then $50 for physical is a chunk of change.

On the ICE Forums there is a Beta Test Creature Law you can download. It is bulky and not easy to use but should work until the actual release of Creature Law. I believe you need to have an account on the forums to get the stuff though.

The only answer they are giving on the forums is "soon." They have been giving that answer for over a month now and are still collecting errata/typos. That thread on the forum is over 15 pages and growing.

sign up for the monthly ICE newsletter, you'll get the info directly from the source that way. PoD has been delayed to get a lot of error fixes done, this also pushes back a bit Spell Law and other books about to be published.

An official public update ETA would be proffesional. Without signing up for a message board or some other service. They've apparently tons of inquiries. Is an update on their public facing blog or a Twitter tweet really too much to ask? Or even here, seeing as how 100% of their paying customers are coming here. Just a crazy thought.

Used to be just needed d10's but now d6 are used for stat gains. Good news is that I own about 40 of d6's. But why didn't them simply having a d10 chart for stat gains?

I played this when the first bata came out and was not impressed. Still better than Harps, but that's not saying much. The only thing that made this edition better was monsters were given stats. May pick it up at some point, but I'll keep to my older books for now.

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.
