Comments: This box contains the first edition or printing of the Spell Laws rules, being the
second of the Rolemaster laws or systems. These explain in detail the three realms of
magical power, i.e. Mentalism, Essence and Channeling, being represented in each booklet
with a color code, together comprising over 2000 spell descriptions! In other words, quite
comprehensive rules on magic. But not only that, the white rules booklet on Spell Law
describe 15 character classes of a more or less magical type, such as the Magician, Illusionist,
Alchemist, Cleric, Animist, Healer, Mentalist, Seer, Sorcerer, etc., as well as rules on spell
points, alchemy and spell research rules, the use of magic items, and also fatal channeling
spells. The spell attack tables cover armor, large creatures, range, spell failures and critical
strikes. It also adds more spell natured phases to the battle round. The Spell Law system is a
logical and natural progression from Arms Law, covering magical combat in the same manner
using charts to resolve open-ended rolls for bolt and ball attacks, as well as different critical
strikes tables and spell failure tables.
