RMC: Adventure in the Grand Duchy of Karameikos
« on: March 07, 2022, 06:31:39 PM »
Hello, my name is Elton Robb.  I'm a fan of Rolemaster.  Before I do Eberron, I'd like to try something simple and easy for players to grasp.

I'd like to start a game in the Grand Duchy of Karameikos (I have a print copy I ordered from DriveThru).  I would like to use RM2/RMC.  Allowed Races are thus:
* Common Man -- Traladarans
* High Men -- Thyatians
* Mixed Men (see RMC1) -- half breeds
* Wood Elves -- Calrie Elves
* Fair Elves -- Vyalia Elves
* Orcs -- from the east of Karameikos (yes, you can play orcs)

You will need a copy of below:


I'll be allowing the following Professions:
From the Realm of Arms
* Fighter
* Thief
* Rogue
* Warrior Monk
From the Realm of Channeling
* Animist
* Cleric
* Healer
From the Realm of Essence
* Alchemist
* Magician
* Illusionist
From the Realm of Mentalism
* Mentalist
* Lay Healer
* Seer
Hybrid
* Astrologer
* Mystic
* Sorcerer
Semi-Spell Users
* Monk
* Bard
* Ranger
* Paladin (See RMCI and RMCII)

The following optional skill laws can be used: The complete skill descriptions in RMCII

I wanted to start a Rolemaster campaign.  I figured I could get more mileage with RM2/RMC than with RMSS.  Campaign will happen on Roll20.

Much success and luck to you!

You should also post in the official ICE Discord server and even the FB page, also, if you don’t receive many hits here.

Thank you, very much!  I have posted on the official discord server and the unofficial one just now.

puh ... the old Mystara Setting.

i hope that you have experience running B/X or BECMI flavored content under RM,
because the player experience might be entirely different from whats intended in writing.

I'd swallow cthulhu whole, with sushi and soy-sauce.

I have a beautiful layout ready to go on InDesign, and it won't export as a pdf.  But here is the raw file of my house rules.

I definitely wish I had time to play, but sadly my dance card is full. Out of curiosity, are you granting more DP for the full skills used in RMC2?

When do you plan on running the game?
Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Scratch that. Power attracts the corruptible.

Rules should not replace the brain and thinking.

What time? (I am Eastern US time.) And do you plan on running weekly or bi-weekly or monthly?

I would like to know this too, as I am in a couple of RM2/C games and the 25% of Primary DPs you get for Secondary are not nearly enough - provided you actually plan on using them.

Bi weekly. We changed to RMSS/FRP.  Pants said he would gain more mileage that way.  I've also had to change the setting.



But alas, my cousin is in three games a week.  So he won't be joining us.

Well, I prefer RMFRP anyway. I still need to know what time of day you plan on running the game as I have a 3-5 PM (Eastern Time) game already. If it is later or earlier than that, I am good to go.

What setting are you moving it to?

Every other sunday, at 1:30 pm MST/3:30 pm EST.  I was thinking about the Shadow World as another setting.

Well, looks like I won't be able to as my current game is 3 PM EST Sundays. That is really too bad because I love SW and the RMFRP ruleset is my favorite.
