Thought about it.

Am interested.

Tell me more.

What must I do?

What help can I give?

rmfr

P.S. - I don't need an O.I.C. moniker on my avatar.  Just want to help.

As for what help you can give....

* Run Rolemaster, HARP, SM or any other games made by Iron Crown at conferences, conventions and game days.
* Have your local gaming group (or internet group) do their roleplaying using these systems.
* Act as a living advertisement for these gaming systems

We are still working out some issues to make the first part easier and more effective for everyone.  The second part is completely up to you and your gaming group.

Ideas for achieving the third part:
* Submit resources (adventures, NPC's, add-on's, etc.) to one of the storage sites - such as ICE's vault or one of the linked sites.
* Submit articles to The Guild Companion
* Use whatever web presence you can to help bring more gamers to Iron Crown products.
     Forums on this and other sites
     Links to this and other sites
     Product Reviews on this and other sites

There are also a lot of other things that can be done. This is an informal group. Welcome.

Can do.  Already have group of five DnDers interested in learning RM.  Right now, they have created their characters, but I am still creating a RM beginners module to run.  Maybe I can do a write up of this first adventure and submit it as a module for running RM beginners on?

Sign me up.  I already do the first three and am willing to help the cause to spread the ICE love around.

YeeeHaaaw!

So do we have T-shirts or anything?  If not I would like to try to design one for Order, with ICE's permission of course.  Just something simple, nothing fancy.  LMK.

I know this is an old thread, but I've been out in long-orbit again. What I personally have done (the last two years) is put out ICE flyers at the largest local convention, DragonCon. It took me maybe an hour to put together the design, tweak it, and print up a big stack (400 half-pages last year, 600 this year). Then I spent a few moments each time I passed a "gimme" table at the con adding my ICE flyers to the offering. Nothing hard, and all it cost me was about $5 for the ream of cool gray paper.

BUT, I did put (potentially) the name and idea of ICE and Rolemaster in front of close to 30,000 people EACH YEAR. Next year I hope to be together enough to run an expo with RMX. Maybe that'd lure Rasyr down from Rome. :)

Yep this is an old thread, and it would be nice to see it flourish again, I quit as mod here as it seemed to be going nowhere, but perhaps some fresh blood can rekindle a little excitement and get OIC moving again as a way to promote ICE games.

I think I'm a member therefore I am.

I'am quite involved in advertizing HARP these last days. I translated HARP in italian for the Red Glove publishing and now i'am running HARP games in local stores and during conferences!

 ;D i'am forming a group of Accolites to spread the Word of ICE  ;D ;D ;D

Here in italy there is a good community of Rolemaster and HARP, i hope to get them more involved in creating some free stuff to download and ready to play adventures to use during conventions.

I'am open to suggestions about how running good games for people, i'am sure that here there a lot of people more experienced than me!!

You are already doing all of the right stuff. 

When OIC first began (on its own boards) we had (IIRC) a three pronged approach.

1 - Gaming Days / Conferences - Getting involved in either organizing or playing in such events.
2 - Resource Development - Designing adventures, monsters, conversions, etc. to expand the quick and easy to use application of Iron Crown products.  This can easily dovetail with #1 in that creating introductory adventures and premade characters can then be used in game days and conferences.
3 - Internet Presence - Internet banner exchanges, newsletter, webpage, etc.

There may have been more to it or some of this may be off, but it's the way I remember it.
Looks like you have all 3 areas covered.

So how do I get that neat O.I.C. below my avatar?  I have the blank, but I don't see where you can upload your own avatar.

At the menu across the top, click on Profile

Then look at the image below.

Find and click on the link on the left that is circled in red.

Then circle on the right is where you upload the image once you click on the link on the left.

Aha!

It is because you only have 39 posts... 

Neophytes (50+ posts) and above are allowed to upload their own avatar images.....


Just make 11 more posts and you will be able to see that option.  ;D
