This product is an add-on feature package for ERA for Rolemaster.

ERA (Electronic Roleplaying Assistant) is the ultimate companion for Rolemaster campaigns. Using ERA 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.

With ERA you can create Rolemaster characters and then manage their adventures. Players can also monitor their characters from their mobile devices as the action progresses. But no adventure is complete without some gritty combat. Blows must be dealt, and damage resolved. In the free base ERA product you will find 2 sample weapons and 3 critical tables.

The RMC Combat Companion package for ERA provides 3 RMC professions with their spells, and 19 attack tables with their corresponding critical tables. It also offers new options when creating combat styles and resolving combat.

Expand your professional possibilities by choosing from the warrior spell users: Champion, Elemental Warrior and Venturer. All their base lists with complete spell descriptions are also included, and automatically offered on character creation.

When creating your character, the Combat Companion package offers an improved weapon skill step where you can assign your baseline costs and get automated assistance in computing the final skill costs.

Change the rules of combat with the Combat Companion armor by the piece rules, by choosing elegant styles such as chain boots and gauntlets with a leather cuirass, or a plate helmet and neck protection over your cloth robes.

No matter how your opponent defends, you can attack using the weapon attack tables with their specialized criticals. Savor the differences in slashing caused by animal claws and long blades like never before!

Tutorial videos are available (see link below) and support can also be found on the ICE forums at www.ironcrown.com

ERA is compatible with Windows, Mac OSX and Linux.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
