Well, the Director’s Briefing (pardon me a moment while I chuckle at the self aggrandizing pomposity of that title) for June came out with news that RMU Beta 2 would be released this month. After the jump, I will parse the actual announcement in a bit more detail because there are a few tiny tidbits in there that I find worrisome to say the least.
As I have previously said, I love Rolemaster and watching this revision process has been like watching a train wreck in super slow motion. You just cannot look away, no matter how painful it is!
Ok, just to highlight a little bit of information. The people currently in charge of ICE, have had actual control since December of 2010. This means that they have running things for 4 and half years. The RMU Beta 1 has been out since October of 2012, so for 2 and a half years (presuming that they actually release it this month).
When I wrote my RM revision, I put out 15 Playtest versions within a year. When I wrote Novus, I put out 9 Public Playtest versions in a single year. And this actually brings up some of my ire again the impending RMU Beta 2 announcement. Jump to the full article to see the text of the announcement and my comments on it.
