ERA for Rolemaster

Great product. I've been playing Rolemaster off and on for years (mostly FRP, because I prefer the way it handles spells), and I've used various utilities and spreadsheets for character creation and management over that time. Nothing holds a candle to ERA.

Sure, purchasing modules can get expensive, but you're paying for the convenience of not having to manually fill out the character sheet (in the late 90s, I actually had a group mutiny during character creation).

I’m giving this application five stars because it deserves it, but the following two things could be improved in subsequent versions:

1) We need an easier way to create your own content for ERA. ICE is never going to release a downloadable add-on for MERP for instance, but it would be nice if the fan community could easily work on supplements themselves.

2) The character record could better reflect a character’s inventory. In fact, an option to export a character sheet with a format identical to ICE’s official ones would be perfect.

I expected this to work flawlessly, the combat tool did not work on the stock monsters. That was my biggest frustration. Additionally, when creating a character I expected to be able to randomly generate stats with the RMFRP set. Lastly, the software is designed to run on a localhost using a web interface. Which is great provided you have the ability to connect to a router so that your players can do something with the software. In a lot places there were no buttons to return to the main module, so I had to use the back button far too frequently for my tastes.

The character sheet for printing is awful, as well, I'd expect that it would render in a very nice sheet that we could print and take to the table. I expected the ability to enter my own data as well.Purchasing the data packs is the route they decided to take, but if I don't have the extra money and I want to invest my time into entering the data myself, I expect to be able to do that. Overall its a decent attempt, but I am happy it didn't cost me anything to find out this wasn't really production ready.

The sample creatures have now been changed, and new sample attack and critical tables have been added, to allow a complete working example of the product.

This application has huge potential! The complete lack of documentation is not helpful at all but the program is relatively intuitive once you realize the flow of the interface. I must admit that I did not view the Tutorial video before writing this and will modify my review if the tutorial answers all my questions. The free version is extremely limited but it has me interested enough to at least purchase Character Law and see what we have.

I have not been able to get it to open and do anything. So far all it does is take up memory.
