The RolemasterBlog is a fan run blog written by GMs and players of probably the best roleplaying game ever written, not that we are biased!
This month brings more monsters, the Vampire and Vampire Spawn as well as three playable adventures. Stand By Me is a role players vampire story where saving the innocent surpasses the need to kill the monster. At the other end of the spectrum we have a vampires... [click here for more]
Welcome to Issue 9 of the Rolemaster Fanzine.
This month we have three adventures for you. In Raging Bull there are two concepts depending on how your group operates. Most fantasy games are very much European in outlook but there are hints at possible adventures in a more exotic African styled world suggested by an NPC that the players never get to meet. For those of a more action... [click here for more]
Welcome to Issue 10 of the Rolemaster Fanzine.
Brian wrote recently that he had published nearly 200 documents for Shadow World on the Rolemaster Blog and the Rolemaster Forums. What I want to achieve here is bring these together into the first printed edition of Brian’s Alternative Spell Law or BASiL as it has become known.
It is my understanding that BASiL is a working document in that it... [click here for more]
Welcome to Issue 11 of the Rolemaster Fanzine.
This month is all about BASiL, Brian’s Alternative Spell (i) Law. We are featuring 33 new spell lists what is Essence part 2. These spell lists encompass the traditional Magician base lists, so this is where you are going to find you fireballs and lightning bolts.
It is also where BASiL really starts to shine in my opinion. No... [click here for more]
Welcome to Issue 12 of the Rolemaster Fanzine.
This month we complete the Essence section of BASiL. We have five new essence spell lists and one special preview list from the Channeling BASiL lists.
In addition we have two new monsters, the Mummy and Mummy Lord.
I also want to start a discussion about NPCs and stock NPCs in particular. There are as many different types of NPC out there as there... [click here for more]

Welcome to Issue 14 of the Rolemaster Fanzine.
This month we are starting to look at Brian Hanson’s Mentalism realm in BASiL. Of the three realms this is the least well developed, in my opinion.
What we have for you this month are seven mentalism lists. That may not seem like many but do bear in mind that BASiL is built on the assumption that characters will be of ‘no profession’... [click here for more]
Welcome to Issue 15 of the Rolemaster Fanzine.
This month is all about ideas and giving you inspiration to make things your own.
I want to introduce the idea of different kinds of magic. We have the three realms and we have Arcane but we haven’t had anything truly new for nearly four decades. So this month I am introducing Blood Magic that does away with Power Points during casting.
After... [click here for more]
Welcome to Issue 16 of the Rolemaster Fanzine.
This month is all about adventure writing and ideas. I present three potential ‘philosophies’ as well as two adventures which I hope you can play through with the minimum of GM preparation.
I also reprint a story by Captain S. P. Meek. This story was first published in 1930 and is now in the public domain. I hold this story up as an eample... [click here for more]
Welcome to Issue 17 of the Rolemaster Fanzine.
This month brings two adventures 'Vesticide' and 'Fire Dragon' and in addition the shapeshifting Dream Team. The dream team could make an intestesting addition to any campaign. If you have ever been tempted to have an 'anti-party' then maybe the dream team is for you.
In addition you also get some essay style articles by me. I always enjoy having a good... [click here for more]
