Iron Crown Enterprises’ Newsletter – June 2013

June has been a very HARP heavy month so far at ICE HQ. Don’t be fooled however, in addition to the release of HARP Martial Law and AutoHARP Fantasy and AutoHARP-SF, we’ve& been working on a myriad of other projects in the background.
Catch up on what you’ve missed with this month’s Director’s Briefing.
We have now drawn our Rolemaster’s 30th anniversary competitions to a close. We have seen some great entrants. The decision has been taken that we will wait until the release of the beta versions of the unified Rolemaster’s Creature and Treasure Law before we continue with those areas of the contest.
In the meantime, we will be drawing overall winners in each of the areas we have covered (Character Law, Spell Law and Arms Law) and then pick an overall overall winner from them.
Keep an eye on our forum as we’ll be announcing the winners soon.
It has been a very busy month for HARP and there is yet more to come. This month saw the release of HARP Martial Law which is available now for only $5.00 for a limited time only.
In addition to this, June has seen the release of both AutoHARP Fantasy and AutoHARP-SF. AutoHARP software combines a Character Creator and a Combat Tracker, both of which are fully compatible with HARP Fantasy/HARP-SF.
We are now patiently awaiting the release of HARP College of Magics which should be ready for release early next month. Keep an eye on our website and we’ll let you know as soon as it’s available.
After the release of the brilliant Shadow World: Cloudlords of Tanara in hardcover and softcover color last month, this month we have been continuing in our work on Shadow World.
We have a number of new products and rereleases in the pipeline. One of the main ones being Emer III which may end up being the biggest Shadow World book ever (not including the atlases). In addition to this, Terry Amthor is working on a new NE Jaiman book in the spirit of the very popular Xa’ar module (this however is quite a long way down the pipeline as work has only just begun on it).
As well as all the stellar work he has done/is doing for ICE, Terry will soon be releasing a Shadow World novel, Loremaster Legacy, the first in a series, which will have a lot of tie-ins with Shadow World and Rolemaster gaming. Keep an eye on the website and we’ll let you know the second it becomes available.
Our friends over at AppEndix have just released: Sherlock Holmes 2 – The Black River Emerald “gamebook” app which is available now from the AppStore!
Sherlock Holmes 2 – The Black river Emerald is both: a book and an interactive app, in which you attempt to uncover the mysterious theft of the famous Black River emerald from the once-exclusive Belton School for boys in Shropshire. Theft, blackmail and attempted murder are not yet part of the curriculum! And if mystery and danger abound, can Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson be far behind?
Featuring a fully interactive interface with dice rolls, character sheet, sound effects, atmospheric music dynamically adapting to the story and more, this unique app for iPhone and iP ad is now available on the AppStore for just $1.99!
Sherlock Holmes 2 is the second of eight Sherlock Holmes Solo Mysteries gamebooks by Iron Crown Enterprises to be published as interactive apps, including one title which was never available in English before.
