Mentalism Companion

Official Training Packages Costs

Copyright Nicholas HM Caldwell and ICE 1999

In order to ensure that the published version of Mentalism Companion had a final page count of 160 pages, it was necessary to omit certain material. One of the items that was cut was a table providing the Development Point costs associated with the training packages presented in the other companions and sourcebooks for the Seer, Astrologer, Enchanter, and Armsmaster. The original intention was to include the missing table in the 1998 RMSS Annual. Unfortunately the 1998 Annual was cancelled as not being financially viable and the costs table remained missing.

Many, including myself, have considered this situation to be very unsatisfactory. With the co-operation of ICE, I have been able to create the official Development Point costs for the new Mentalism Companion professions. To ensure this addendum reaches as many Rolemaster fans as possible, this article is being simultaneously published in The Guild Companion and on the official ICE website.
