    I Am For The Darkmaster, Actually

    Being the author, I'm probably not the best person to answer this question, but judging by what I've seen, once you get familiar with the system 15-20 minutes seems more likely, even without an automated sheet. You may take a bit more if you start fiddling with background options, but we're...

    I Am For The Darkmaster, Actually

    The armor skill helps casting spells in armor, so maybe the Champion would be a better d&s style cleric than the Animist 🤔 Got it, this is something we'll definitely keep in mind if we'll ever decide to publish something like a Player's handbook. About the LFG section, good idea, we've got...

    I Am For The Darkmaster, Actually

    Correct, sorry, my answer was badly phrased. What I meant was: while Stunned you should parry with everything you can (1/2 CMB in most cases), and possibly disengage as soon as you can (hopefully your allies will come to your aid). Note that meanwhile you can still take Half Actions, such as...

    I Am For The Darkmaster, Actually

    They're still releasing new Shadow World books (and re-releasing/updating some of the old ones) on DTRPG! Can't wait for the new Rolemaster to come out! I've deliberately avoided RMU discussions/playtests in the past years while developing Darkmaster, so I'm really curious and excited to try...

    I Am For The Darkmaster, Actually

    This is interesting, because class abilities were something we tested very early on in our playtest phase, but eventually decided to remove because we felt that: they tended to "shoehorn" characters into their vocation's role a bit too much for our tastes they didn't really seem to support any...

    I Am For The Darkmaster, Actually

    Not difficult at all, I guess, you could just make it a specialty skill. However, one thing I forgot to mention before: in Against the Darkmaster you can also use Drive to reduce or even cancel the results of the critical strikes your character suffers. So, maybe an alternative solution could be...

    I Am For The Darkmaster, Actually

    Remember that Stun only lasts one round, unless you're stunned again meanwhile. The best thing to do when stunned, is to go full defense, attempt to disengage, and re-engage the enemy when you're not stunned anymore. Meanwhile your companions should try to step in to avoid letting your foe...
