Here's an extension that I am currently using in my campaign that I thought others might want to use. It contains 3 changes.

Initiative used 1d100 instead of 2d10
Rolemaster Companion 1 - 4.22 Elves and SD - The Sneaky Elf Approach
Rolemaster Companion 4 - 3.1 Movement Pace Anomalies


The first one uses 1d100 instead of 2d10 for initiative. Initiative seemed too static in my game so I figured I would add a bit more randomness to it.

The second one changes the SD bonus to a positive number for the Stalk and Hide skills. As long as the race name contains elf in it or it matches one of the Shadow World elf or half-elf race names it will adjust the racial SD bonus to a positive number when calculating the stat bonus for Stalk and Hide skills.

The third one is mainly cosmetic. The difficulties for pace have been adjusted to match the Rolemaster Companion 4 section 3.1. The new values will show up in the combat tracker movement calculator so the GM knows which column of the MM table to use for the pace.

RMC Optional Rules v0.5 (Resolves the SetEnabled error that will occur with the latest version of the ruleset)

Nice Dakadin.

I have just manually edited the sneaky elven thing, as I use that optional rule too.
Initiative D100 is nice because thats how we did in the old times, and I was wondering why that changed.
I seldom use manuvers and pace in combat as it can slow the combat further down (more rolling and decision making, how fast do I move and what are the consequences of that...), I try to give my combat a more cinematic feeling than a strategic boardgame, if you follow me. I try to pace the combat to get that feeling of blood pumping chaos that combat is :) and make judgements then and there if what they want to do is possible when it comes to movement. Near impossible, but I try. But maybe with FG doing all the calculations and the easy access to all the info I will change my mind, Ill have to read up on it :).

Very good extension thanks :).

Thanks, Dakadin. I especially like the added part about matching the Shadow World races.

Let me know if there are any elf races that should be included from other settings.

How was this implemented if I may ask? We have an Elven Healer who is being killed by the SD mod. I would love to change this for her in the extension so that her First Aid and Meditation skills make more sense culturally (Elves are gifted healers in this setting).

If you change from .EXT to .ZIP, you can get to the contents. You will need to look for the rules\scripts\rules_pc.lua file. On line 47 there is an if statement that is checking for the skill names. You will need to add the additional skills to that line using additional or entries. Be sure to use the fullname of the skills. For those two skills I would change this line:

if string.find(skillName, "[Hh]ide") or string.find(skillName, "[Ss]talk") then

to this:

if string.find(skillName, "[Hh]ide") or string.find(skillName, "[Ss]talk") or string.find(skillName, "First Aid") or string.find(skillName, "Meditation") then

Error message with Rolemaster Classic ruleset for Fantasy Grounds, version 1.7.5

I would like to ask, how to fix the following error message after the update to Rolemaster Classic ruleset for Fantasy Grounds, version 1.7.5?
Script Error: [string "ct/scripts/ct.lua"]:88: attempt to index field 'quicknessBonus' (a nil value)

Thanks

Hi Plastictotoro,

Just a few thoughts:
Have you tried removing the entry from the combat tracker and re-adding it?
Do you have version 0.3 of the Optional Rules extension?
Is it happening for a PC or NPC?
What are you doing when you get the error?

Thanks for the quick answer.
I am using: RMC Optional Rules v0.1
I made some tests:
- PC are not effected
- monster directly from the creature & treasure Law also not
- monster added via the encounter feature throw the error then adding it to the combat tracker and during the roll of the ini

I hope this can help you.

Where I can download the newest version of the Optional rules v0.3?

thanks for the answer

With Plastictotoro help, I was able to track down the issue to the RMC Optional Rules extension. It was missing a couple of late features that were added to the ruleset. You can find version 0.4 which resolves the issue here: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?21208-Extension-with-Select-Optional-Rules&p=176691#post176691

Updated the Optional Rules extension to version 0.5. This version corrects the SetEnabled errors that occur with the latest version of FG and the ruleset. New version in the first post.
