Iron Crown Newsletter – April 2013

This month saw Iron Crown Enterprises first EVER (that I’m aware of) April fools joke. It may not have been particularly sophisticated but I thought it was pretty good. For those of you that got your hopes up, I’m afraid we will not be releasing Rollmaster, a supplement explaining the various ways of rolling dice. We are however releasing a number of much more exciting products so read on to find out more…

Catch up on what you’ve missed with this month’s Director’s Briefing.


Last year we started a long line of competitions to celebrate Rolemaster’s 30th anniversary, and now we’re finishing them!

So far we have completed the Arms Law competitions and almost completed the Spell Law competitions. We’ll then move on to Character Law, Treasure Law and Creature Law. Winners from these contests will then be voted on by the fans to select an overall winner in each category. The category winners will receive a hardcopy version of the corresponding new Rolemaster book. The winners will then compete against each other to find an overall “Rolemaster’s 30th anniversary competition” winner!

This month we’re looking for your best story involving Spell Mastery. For more information and rules visit our website. You’ve got until the end of the month to submit your stories via our our facebook page or our forum.


With other work completed (please see the settings section for this exciting piece of news) our team are now entirely focused on HARP and its upcoming releases.

It is still anyone’s guess as to whether it will be College of Magics or Martial Law that will be first across the line and released first as they’re currently both very close to completion.

In addition to these two great titles, HARP Bestiary is well under way with a whole host of writers working on the various types of creatures in an attempt to get it finished as soon as possible. On completion, we plan to offer all three books in harback color versions as well as the normal pdf. These will be available through the OneBookShelf network. We’ll let you know the second they are made available so that you can rush out and order them.


This month has seen the release of the brilliant Shadow World: Cloudlords of Tanara. It is available now as a pdf from the OneBookShelf Network.

Buy it here!

Shadow World: Cloudlords of Tanara is a classic module of Shadow World, set in the east of the continent of Jaiman, and updated by Terry Amthor for play in both its original time era and the current Shadow World timeline.

The original Cloudlords of Tanara was set over three thousand years before the present time of 6056 in the Third Era. Some things are the same, but many things have changed. Groups dormant for ages have awakened again: The evil Cult of Ezran, the Priests Arnak, and even the Cloudlords themselves have returned from legend into stark reality. And the Elven-realm to the east, Urulan, long thought lost, has awakened again with a Queen wearing the ancient, magical Unicorn Crown. Turning back an invasion by the imperialist Rhakhaan Kingdom, she threatens the peace of Tanara, which now finds itself caught between two realms.



A few months back we brought you word of the brilliant “Murder at the Diogenes club”, the Sherlock Holmes adventure book app made by our friends over at Appendix, well those smart folks are at it again and have just released an incredible preview to their next adventure “The black river emerald”.

Watch the teaser trailer here. Keep watching the website, forum and social media pages and we’ll let you know the second they release it in full.


For those of you that haven’t been on it our forum is a great little place filled with intelligent conversation about our favorite hobby and, in addition to these discussions, we sometimes have a fan send us something pretty special.

This month saw one of our fans post This. It is a brilliant Character Generator for the new Rolemaster system. I haven’t had a chance to test it myself but it looks great. Keep up the good work guys!
