Well, I feel a bit dumb but ...

Rolemaster Rome comes with a thing called Training Packages, but I cannot find rules about it in the Rolemaster Classic rulebooks ... I am missing something? Like a page explaining how they work and all? XD

IIRC, a training package is a bundle of skills suitable to your character's occupation, theme, background, etc., allowed to obtain with a certain DP cost discount. This rule was imported from RMSS/FRP via Rolemaster Additions articles once published by the prior incarnation of ICE (i.e. Mjornir LLC). I guess you can ask the details at the current ICE's official Rolemaster forums:

It comes with a later edition. Rulemunchikins will find them to be Op. The idea is that you get a broad selection of skills based on your classes, and can buy packages (or be awarded packages) that will give you more skills that you otherwise would gain. In other word they are trying to add some realism to a game that had that potential, of realism, but in general created singleminded killingmachines. So from my experience new players didnt mind having more skills, but old players grumbled about it breaking the game. Suddently your best skill might just be sewing. Yup they didnt like that much.. Oh and the starting level is about 5th, powerwise, not 1st.

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.
