Rolemaster Reborn

On Friday 28th September 2012, as I was sweating in preparation to meet the guys for Friday Night Roleplay, the new Rolemaster Beta Playtest began.

Regular readers may remember my previous post in which I began to prep... and it's nice to report that things have ticked along nicely.

Welcome to Iolkus!
