A New Edition of Rolemaster

Guild Companion Publications Ltd., the current license holder of Rolemaster, just announced a new edition of the RPG.  Rolemaster is one of those games that I've run once, but probably will never run again.  Back in the earlier '90's it's chart bases system was alluring but intimidated me so much, I just never got past 1 session.  While I'm not a big fan of charts, I do enjoy the games presentation.

And now, with the wide use of PDF's, the charts that used to be a bugbear to manage, are a snap.

I do wish GCP Ltd. would really consider making the Rolemaster Express PDF's available again, as I feel that is the best version of the rules I've seen.

I wish them luck.
