Rolemaster Combat Minion is a free-to-use Web App for use with the Rolemaster Roleplaying Game. It helps speed up, track and manage combat encounters and PC/NPC health. We hope our fellow Rolemaster players find this software useful.
By clicking the "I ACCEPT" button, you confirm that you have read and accept the Terms and Conditions of Use. Please click "LEAVE" if you do not accept.
I accept the Terms and Conditions of Use.
For your convenience, we have created a sample database on this device/PC to get you started. It includes a party of player characters and an enemy goblin party. Delete or add to these as you like!
Iron Crown Enterprises (ICE) have allowed us to include a few sample Rolemaster (RM) weapon and critical tables, including Broadsword, Short Bow, Shock Bolt, Slash, Puncture & Electricity tables.
Using the included tables means the final weapon result and crits are provided by the App itself, but even without other weapon tables, Minion will speed up your combat encounters considerably. To use other weapons, simply:

1. Enter the final attack and/or crit result eg. '5AS' from the weapon table. (Only this last step must be manually entered - Minion still does the hard work, calculations, etc.), or

2. Buy the full RM2/C or RMSS/FRP tables from ICE at RPGNow.com.

Starting a combat encounter is easy...
1. Click the Initiative button, then Save the initiative results. The first actor will be shown in the Encounter Actions panel.
2. Choose Attacker by clicking the name of the Attacker.
3. Choose Defender by clicking the name of the Defender in the PC or NPC grid.
4. Click the Attack button, then follow the directions in the Attack panel popup to resolve the attack.
5. Then, click the Next Actor button and repeat from Step 2...
At the end of the round, click the End Round button and repeat from Step 1...
Video tutorials for the entire process can be viewed here:

1. Combat Encounter Tutorial Video (12 mins)

2. Character Creation Tutorial Video (8 mins)

Tutorial demonstrations are provided in the following videos:
1. Where can I get all the weapon and critical tables?
Licenses for RM2/Classic and RMSS/FRP full table data are available for purchase within the OneBookShelf online shops. We recommend RPGNow.com.
2. If I purchase a full table data License, can I use it on all my PCs/devices?
Yes. For example if you own a PC, a laptop and an iPad, you may use the same License on all of them. If you purchase a new device later, you may also use the same License. However you are strictly prohibited from giving your License information to another person, and we log all Licensed data downloads (User, IP, Device type, License Info) to ensure that License keys are being used for personal use only.

IMPORTANT: Please note each browser on each device will have its own unique DB of Minion characters. Normally you will only want to use Minion on one device - where your campaign characters are stored.
3. Can you add <cool new function> to this software?
To request new functions, please request at the Minion Forum at ICE. You will find an active group of Rolemaster GMs and Players eager to talk about all aspects of the game.
4. Help... I found a bug!
Please post the bug to the Minion Forum at ICE. We will endeavor to fix it ASAP.
5. When I create characters, where is my data stored?
Within your web browser's "localstorage" data store. Since each browser has its own separate localstorage, each will have an entirely different DB of Minion characters. Think of this Web App as similar to an iOS or Android app, where in this case each browser on each device is its own separate App.
6. Are my characters safe?
Use the Backup function within the Options menu to be completely assured your characters are safe.
As long as you don't clear your entire browser data store, your Minion DB of characters will stay on your device's hard drive. Depending on your browser, clearing cookies MAY delete your localstorage Minion DB, so please ensure the browser you use doesn't clear cookies and localstorage at the same time. For more information, please read here or here.
7. How many characters and creatures can I create?
Thousands. Localstorage allows about 5000 KB of data, and each character only requires about 0.2 KB.
8. Can I move my characters from one device to another, or from one browser to another?
Yes. Use the Backup and Restore functions found under the Options menu. You can save a text file of all your characters, and restore them onto any device or browser.
9. Can I use this Web App offline?
Yes. This app only needs to be downloaded once. From then on, it will load from the internet if you are online, or from cache (wep app manifest) if you are offline.
