Rolemaster: A game for those who are the greatest of mighty warriors, dedicated clerics, infamous thieves and potent wizards that must be challenged to the limit by the deadliest enemies an expert Game Master can wield. Rolemaster provides advanced and expert role players with martial and sorcerous combat, invigorated with gritty realism and the great risks and rewards that such players demand! Combat is deadly due to the Iron Crown created concept of open-ended dice rolls, where very high or low rolls result in additional dice rolls for extraordinary results resulting in exciting triumphs and failures. Thousands of spells enable any magical effect from the modest to the earth-shattering to be cast by heroes and villains alike. Rolemaster is a role playing game of modular rules where Game Masters and players can create their version of the rules designed to fit their style of gaming and their fantasy world of any genre.

Spacemaster: Laser cannons, blasters, alien races, and interstellar war are the game fare of Spacemaster, which is fully compatible with the core rule concepts of Rolemaster. Spacemaster provides the science fiction role player with a realistic and technically detailed skills-based system and a plethora of character choices in terms of professions, species, talents, skills, making it extremely versatile to support any futuristic setting an expert Game Master can create. Or, a GM can use one of Iron Crown’s sci-fi settings.

Shadow World features a dozen continents and scores of races and cultures.

Cyradon: Cyradon is Iron Crown Enterprises’ main setting to be used with our High Adventure Role Playing (HARP) game. The continent setting of Cyradon presents a high fantasy setting where the player-characters can shape the future of this rediscovered land, and as they rise in power, the very fate of the world may rest upon their shoulders. In the lands of Cyradon, there are no ancient gods stalking the lands nor satanic dark lords with uncounted legions, but the legacies of a magical cataclysm and sundered kingdoms will challenge all who seek to forge a new destiny. And far beyond Cyradon, lie the mysterious exotic islands of the Shatterings and the warring elder nations of the great continent of Anias. Read more…
