19 – Training Packages

Part 19 – Training Packages


5500 Rolemaster Standard Rules


5800 Rolemaster Fantasy Role Playing


5806 RMFRP Character Law

传奇sfThis article examines the differences in Training Packages between Rolemaster Standard Rules and Rolemaster Fantasy Role Playing and RMFRP Character Law in detail.

Overall, the changes made are very minimal and a character created with either set of rules would be fine, although you should make the corrections to the Doctor Training Package listed in this article if you are using RMSS.

传奇sfThe School of Hard Knocks – The Skill Companion also adds eighteen new Training Packages that were never published in any RMSS product. These are Athlete, Cavalier, Chamberlain, Escort, Farmer, Gladiator, Gossip, Guide, Guild Member, Henchman, Innkeeper, Librarian, Mother, Noble, Panhandler, Pirate, Scribe, and Veterinarian..

The material in section A-6 in RMSS is covered in section A-5 of RMFRP

The entries for the Training Packages in RMFRP don’t include costs for Training Packages that are in Character Law, but Character Law has a Master Table that includes all the costs.

传奇sfFor all of the Training Packages, the last item under “Special” was changed from having a “0” percentage chance in RMSS to “100” in RMFRP. However, they didn’t do this in Character Law, it was left as “0”.

Doctor RMSS A-6.15, RMFRP A-5.6

RMFRP removes the two ranks that were listed in RMSS for Technical/Trade Professional. This was an error in RMSS as you can’t gain ranks in that Category. This is corrected in RMFRP by giving three ranks each in Diagnostics and Second Aid instead of the single ranks given in RMSS.

传奇sfRMFRP eliminates the single ranks given in Midwifery and Prepare Herbs that were given in RMSS. This was probably because this Training Package is in the RMFRP Hardcover and these skills were not described until Character Law. However, the cost of the Package was not reduced

传奇sfNew artwork was added as well
