ERA for Rolemaster

Multiple File Formats

Rolemaster is a detailed role playing game, providing the means to create all kind of characters and resolve maneuvers of any kind, all by following a consistent set of rules and tables.

ERA (Electronic Roleplaying Assistant) is the ultimate companion for Rolemaster campaigns. Just by running this free application players can create their characters using a step by step wizard, then level them up and configure all details in stats, skills and special abilities, even overriding the automatic calculations. Afterwards, they can be added to a running campaign in the adventuring module. From there, the game master can control all aspects of the game: resolve maneuvers, resistances, resting, and of course, spell casting and combat.

Players can also oversee the current status of their characters as the adventure progresses, simply by accessing the application with their mobile devices. This also allows them to check all known spells with full descriptions, current skill values and more. Inventory and game master-to-player communication also have their own systems.

Get ERA for free and try it out using the included Rolemaster Classic sample races, professions, spells, attacks and criticals.

Complete datasets for Rolemaster Classic, namely Rolemaster Classic Arms Law, Rolemaster Classic Spell Law, and Rolemaster Classic Character Law, can be purchased from OneBookShelf.

Tutorial videos are available (see link below). For technical support for this product, please visit the Rolemaster Software board of the ICE forums at

Will era run on a tablet or mobile device?

ERA must be installed on a Windows, Linux, MacOS, OS X or Raspberry Pi computer for the server to run. Then you can connect from any phone, tablet, netbook, notebook, tv or whatever has a browser in it.

I just downloaded the program and it fails to run for me using a Windows 7 32bit system. Any ideas?

I use Linux and the Linux install instructions appear to do nothing, I can get the windows version running under Wine but I'd much rather have it running under Linux, has anyone else got it running?, If so, how?. Some better documentation might help. Otherwise it looks good.

If you are running a 64bit Linux, you might be missing the 32bit libraries.
For example I use lib32z1, libx11-6:i386 and libgl1-mesa-glx:i386

Then you run ./ERA-RMC or ./ERA-RMFRP depending on your ruleset.

If you have additional questions, the best place to ask for advice is on the Rolemaster Software Forum:

When I downloaded it, Norton Antivirus reported it as unsafe and removed it.

Does the antivirus provide any additional detail?
Please provide us with the exact antivirus version and a screenshot of the message at the support forum.

They can be added manually as explained here:

They might also become available in future products.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
