If you want to join the Order of the Iron Crown or if you just want to find out more, you can do so on the Order of the Iron Crown webpage.

This month has seen the beta release of ERA for Rolemaster. ERA for Rolemaster is a brand new e-support package which allows you to create characters and manage adventures quickly and easily.

I rather liked the TRue20 way of doing it: the GM says it about time to level up, so you level up.

The Yorkton Gamers introduced a novel approach in their Dragon's Delve campaign:
  • If Mike asks: "Do we level up?", Lockhart says: "No", and doesn't award XP.
  • If Mike goes an entire session without asking, Lockhart awards the players all the XP they've accumulated, up to that point.
That system lets the PCs go from zero to hero in a single session, but it takes a looooooong time before they get to that specific session. ;)
