Happy holidays everyone! As is customary this time of year, I have put together a list if things that I think might be good for the ICE fan or tabletop roleplaying game fan in your life.
HARP Garden of Rain
The community of Vallegarde, a once prosperous village in a remote mountain valley, is beset by freak rainstorms that threaten to drown all its inhabitants in an unstoppable flood. Arriving in the nick of time, daring adventurers have the chance to save the villagers from watery death and win a temporary reprieve. Unravelling the mystery behind the unceasing rains and thwarting the supernatural foes of Vallegarde will be a test of wits, martial prowess and magic for true heroes.
Garden of Rain may be used as a standalone adventure module to slot into the GM’s existing campaign world.
HARP Garden of Rain is available now as a pdf and will be available in print very soon.
Lord of the Rings You Shall Not Pass Adult Ugly Sweater
I don’t know why they refer to it as an ‘ugly’ sweater. I think it’s beautiful. What better way to celebrate the holiday season than with this wonderful Tolkien inspired sweater.
You can also get another Lord of the Rings jumper called ‘Mordor’ but I would say that one is less festive than this Moria version.
Dice jail for misbehaving dice
As anyone who has ever gamed with me will tell you, I have the worst luck when it comes to rolling dice. I don’t know what I did to anger the dice gods, but they take every opportunity to smite me. If I put every misbehaving dice into a dice jail, I would very soon have no dice at all. Even so… These are beautiful and I want them.
These dice jails come in a variety of different styles and sizes and I think they’re just swell!
Dice stocking filled with goodies
I added this dice stocking to the list when I thought it was just a really nice stocking for fans of dice and tabletop roleplaying games. On closer inspection though, it will also contain a minimum 2 sets of dice, a method of storage and lots of other goodies.
A great gift for people who don’t have a stocking and don’t have any ideas what to put in a stocking.
Ready your weapons and your spells to battle the fiends, dangerous and diabolical, described in this tome. Learn of the mundane and supernatural perils that prowl the wildernesses of the world, of the mighty denizens of the seas and oceans, and of the winged beasts soaring on the winds above.
Created for HARP Fantasy, HARP Bestiary contains descriptions, stats and adventure notes for 79 animals, 56 monsters, 4 weres, 14 dragons, 19 undead, 24 elementals, 26 demons and new talents, spells and overlays to create your own monsters.
HARP Bestiary is available now as a pdf and will be available very soon in print.

Ever wondered what Lembas Bread, Cram, or Beorn’s Honey Cakes might taste like?

It’s hard to tell how good this book is without owning it myself, but I love the idea of it.
Fantasy Grounds is just an absolutely brilliant way of playing Rolemaster Classic with friends who can’t all be around a table. This Virtual Table Top takes care of all elements of tabletop gaming, is easy to use, and has a very active development team regularly bringing out updates, improvements and new add ons.
ERA for Rolemaster RMFRP Arms Law (2003)
This product is an add-on feature package for ERA for Rolemaster.
With ERA you can create Rolemaster characters and then manage their adventures. Players can also monitor their characters from their mobile devices as the action progresses. But no adventure is complete without some gritty combat. Blows must be dealt, and damage resolved. In the free base ERA product you will find 2 sample weapons and 3 critical tables.
This feature package adds all attack and critical tables in RMFRP Arms Law (2003). Arm your characters with weapons from the sling to the battle axe, and your monsters with 11 different natural attacks. Or just go bare handed with martial arts strikes or throws. For increased damage, deal some of Rolemaster’s acclaimed criticals.
Hobbit Door Wreaths
Coming in a range of colours and designs, these door wreaths could be used all year round. Evoking the idea of the round doors on hobbit holes seen in the recent Tolkien inspired movies, these would be a great gift for any Middle Earth Role Playing or general Tolkien fans.
Dice set bath bombs
This site has a wide selection of different dice shaped bath bombs. The even cooler thing? They come with dice inside!
I won’t be held responsible for any injuries that may occur by people forgetting that there are now dice in the bath and sitting on them. Despite the obvious risks though, they’re great fun for any dice or gaming fans and they even come in D10s!
Please don’t kill my character T-shirt
This just seems like something that every Rolemaster player should own.
It comes in a range of different colours and sizes and I’m almost certain will have absolutely no affect on any GMs…It looks cool though.
