Magic Items Rolemaster Style

As I have been converting adventures and NPCs over from D&D to Rolemaster i had discovered that not only does one have to comvert people and monsters but also D&D is laced with ‘named’ magical items such as a ‘bag of holding’ and so on. These then have a specific effect like ‘bracers of defence AC4’.

Rolemaster by contrast generally describes things in the format of spell effects or as bonuses. Having one armour type protect as another is a common enough feature but as a rule of thumb spell effects and bonuses to rolls is the Rolemaster way.

To that end I am going to create Rolemaster flavoured alternatives to D&D magic items on an ad hoc basis.

Articles and discussion on Roleplaying in general and various settings including Shadow World, Forgotten Realms and Aioskoru. We talk about pen and paper roleplaying as well as play by post. We have a strong interest in Rolemaster but also play and love other games
