I spent the past two weeks writing a set of adventures. Bizarrely I have used a format I have adapted from Shadow or the Demon Lord to create an adventure for Zweihander as a writing tool to create a Rolemaster adventure.… Read the rest
Thanks to Marc and his discord server I have had an opportunity to look into someone else’s RMu game.
Everything I run will of course be coloured by my own preference for play style. Marc was half joking when he said about me “You don’t don’t use any rules.” when we were discussing our GMing styles.… Read the rest
There are a couple of things I would like to write about this time.
The first is Marc’s Discord server. He has dropped the link on the ICE forums but that was a while ago so I thought I would repost it here.… Read the rest
I have been looking at the way that other games publishers deal with community content recently and at the same time at the way that they put adventures together.
7th Sea is the most Rolemaster-esque when it comes to community content.… Read the rest
This is one of those classic starting adventures. Someone has done something bad to the PCs or their family and the characters are out for revenge.

The philosophy is that each creature has a true name, and that is what you look it up under in the rules.… Read the rest
I spent a three day weekend playing Rolemaster with my group of long standing. The Friday and Saturday morning was spent GMing my Forgotten Realms campaign and Saturday afternoon/evening and Sunday morning was playing my, now 3rd level Lay Healer.
The plan for the game I was running was to finally get the characters to the BBEG’s tower, defeat the evil lady, defeat the big bad monster and rescue the folk hero they have been trying for the past month to locate.… Read the rest
Adventure Paths seem to keep crossing my path (pun intended) a lot recently.
I know that Brian has a 25 step adventure path in planning. I think that is going to be one of a few that we want to create as a follow on from the 50in50 that we did in 2017/2018.… Read the rest
This is the second of my posts on Zweihänder’s mammoth Game Mastery ‘chapter’.
The first bit that sticks out is the world building rules. So far I have been somewhat critical about how Zwei can be both setting neutral and yet detail races, magical sources, gods, religions and to some extent monsters.… Read the rest
