Your Voice

With the ICE Forums apparently self isolating, means there is no where for people to ask questions, sign post other fans to great/interesting/amusing resources or any of other things that we used the forums for. To that end, I want to extend the blog to anyone who wants to use it. A blog is not

Memorial Day Weekend Musings

For those of you that are enjoying a holiday and long weekend despite the pandemic and social distancing, we wish you the best in these trying times! Due to the out of service status of the Rolemaster Forums, ICE is a bit of a “black box” right now, but nonetheless things still seem to be

Further Adventures

It was sad news this week, that GenCon has been cancelled. I saw someone on Discord (Marc maybe?) saying that it should be pushed back to October rather than cancelled but that isn’t so easy.

If you haven’t used discord it is pretty much the IRC, Internet Relay Chat, of the 90s brought up to date. There are

Rolemaster Survey

Another cloudy day of stay-at-home quarantining, so I thought I would throw this out to our faithful blog readers! Please respond in comments by #, answer as few or many as you would like. Favorite magic item. Do you have a favorite item found in a RM book or module or something you made up

Shadow World Spin Cycle: Assassins of Dol Amroth

While the purpose of by “spin cycle” blog articles is to re-purpose MERP and other modules for use in Shadow World, Assassins of Dol Amroth (AoDA) is an excellent module for quick, easy to run adventures in any setting. Cover Art. First, the cover is another great Angus McBride piece, showing a female assassin ready
