    Rolemater Classic ruleset - changing rank bonus progression

    Hi, there

    I have a question to those who familiar with the Rolemaster Classic ruleset.

    I'd like to tweak some of the "skill rank bonus" progressions for my houseruled Rolemaster campaign. And while I'm using the Rolemaster Classic ruleset (which I bought through RPGnow just after its release in summer 2009), I cannot figure out which component of the ruleset should I change.

    For example, the default ruleset defines the stardard "skill rank bonus" progression as:


    but I'd like to change it to:


    Could anyone tell me which file of the ruleset, and which part of the file I should change? And how?

    Hi Thiha

    The skill progression is in scripts/charsheet_skillwindow.lua:
    function getRankBonus(rank,calc)
      if calc==1 then
        -- This is a skill with standard progression
        if rank < 1 then
          return -25;
        elseif rank < 11 then
          return 5 * rank;
        elseif rank < 21 then
          return 2 * rank + 30;
        elseif rank < 31 then
          return rank + 50;
          return math.floor(rank/2) + 65;
      elseif calc==2 then
        -- This is a skill with basic progression
        return 5 * rank;
        -- This is a skill with manual progression
        return 0;
    You'd need to change the logic in the function to calculate your new progression.
