Seems to be "yet another" British made magazine, from the 1st Ed/BECMI hayday era. First two issues (only ones I've skimmed so far) contained a "RoleMaster/AD&D adventure" in two parts....

So certainly seems to be another source of ideas.

https://annarchive.com/adventurer.html is where I found them. Not many issues, but it seemed semi-allright, so... happy reading, Adventurers ;)

This store has "Rules Cyclopedia" listed... for 1200 British Pound Sterling.... seems to me they don't WANT to sell it

General Discussion / Good inspirational reading

I've recently read "The Sanctuary" series of books by Robert J Crane (search on Amazon) the first three books are free for Kindle, the full series are 8 books plus Tales (some background shortstories for some of the characters) and two more books detailing the rise and fall of another of the characters. I found this series to be very well written in terms of the story line, and it has given me a lot of ideas for creating my own little campaign world.

Some ideas from the series includes all classes (Fighters, Magic-users, Healers, etc) have their own "League" which trains them as specialists in their field, anyone not trained by the League of Healers (for example) but are still able to cast healing spells, are stamped as "heretics" and hunted down. (Reminded me of DragonLance and the Towers of High Wizardry, in some ways, only extended to include the other character classes).

All in all, the way it is written it seem to me that the author has at least some experience with MMOs, and quite possible tabletop-RPGs as well, as it just seems "too close" to D&D (or other Fantasy RPGs) for it not to be so.

If you don't have a Kindle E-Reader, you can pick up the free kindle e-reader programme for your computer or tablet and still read the first three books for free. For myself, I really do NOT regret giving the series a go, I've bought the rest of the series as well.
