I made a few changes to the blog today and here is the story why.
I woke up this morning to an email from Colin @ ICE which was a pleasant surprise. He asked for a few things, They wanted a link to the rpgnow site on the blog (you can see it to the left now) but more interestingly they asked if I would make it clear that this was an unofficial blog and put a link to the official blog (also on the left now).… Read the rest
I am perfectly happy to admit that I am a snob. Not just any kind of snob though, I am a monster snob. I am running my campaign set in Faerun and the Forgotten Realms but using Rolemaster in preference to AD&D.… Read the rest
I have created a Drow fighter using the current Beta version of RMU Character Law. I have tried to stick as closely to the previous Drow warrior I used for comparing the four elven races so as to be directly comparable.… Read the rest
Everyone knows that nearly every 12 year old girl wants a pony. Now I had always assumed they were suitably conditioned into the Barbie or Cindy lifestyle and because Barbie and Cindy have ponies then they must have them too. But No!… Read the rest
These are the two races/creatures I discussed last week as being both tied deeply into Drow culture. These two are in my opinion near perfect low level monsters to throw at beginer parties.
Why? Well if you look at their stats below they have a low OB, low-ish DB and not many hits.… Read the rest
A while I ago I created a direct comparison between a Wood, Grey and High Elf and a Drow Elven fighter (see my previous post on Elven races). As part of my commitment to Rolemaster Unified (RMU) I started to look at adding Drow to the list of races provided in Character Law.… Read the rest
You have just got to love those Drow. They are the very model of political correctness and inclusivity, in fact they will make a slave of almost anyone!
Well actually that is not entirely true, they blame surface elves for almost everything (as do I) and the only good elf is a dead elf in their eyes.… Read the rest
I decided on Friday night that is is kind of senseless to keep on plugging away at RM2 and RMC when although it is probably the second best roleplaying game every written and the best FRGP it is after all a very old system.… Read the rest
To illustrate this post I wanted a nice image of a Drow with their stylised hand crossbows which is the absolutely iconic drow weaponry. Every image I could find that was useable seemed to be anatomically challenged.
So here is our ‘internal organs probably relocated elsewhere’ drow sporting the crossbow of choice.… Read the rest
This is the second of my PC Perils posts. I have dropped the “…that I haven’t used yet” as some of these I actually used in the past. This one is best described as “What’s in the hole?”
(In the little journey we are going on today when I say “the party” I do not mean a group of hobbit lycanthopes that may appear in some of the pictures below.)
I thought I would present this ‘Peril’ as a bit of a photo story.… Read the rest
